Red Star Team Deploys to Flood-Damaged Minot, N.D.

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

The Souris River in North Dakota rose to record heights this summer, severely flooding the city of Minot. Last week, the Red Star™ Animal Emergency Services team headed there to help shelter more than 300 displaced animals. About one in every four Minot residents had to evacuate. For more than a month, they’ve been living in friends’ homes, temporary shelters, even open campsites. Many of them will never be able to return to their homes — which gives their pets an uncertain future. The Red Star team will help make sure the animals get what they need: shelter, food and a little bit of love.
