As everyone knows, there is a massive oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. This oil spill is affecting animals greatly. I have compiled a list of organizations that are looking for Volunteers, or donations to help with the care of affected animals. Please help if you can.

If you live along the Gulf and see affected animals, please do not try to care for them your self. Call your local animal control agency.

The Deep Water Horizon (the company who owns the platform) response team is actively working to contain the spill and has laid down 217,000 feet of barrier. They’re asking coastal residents to report areas where oil can be seen on the shore or to leave contact information if they wish to volunteer by calling 1-866-448-5816. Oiled animals should be reported at 1-866-557-1401, but not captured
