What do you do when the power goes out? You get to work. Animal Haven gives us a glimpse of a shelter left without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Animal Haven shelter, in Lower Manhattan, is without power following Hurricane Sandy, along with a large part of the city, including its staffers. The gate is locked down and the shelter remains closed to the public, but the work goes on, providing companionship and care for the animals.

Animal Haven released this video showing that the shelter shares the can-do spirit of the city and its residents and they go about their lives in the face of the blackout and flooding that affect a large part of the city.

Recovering from Hurricane Sandy

“Animal Haven was left without electricity. Even though some of the staff were left without phone service, water, transportation, and electricity; they put the needs of the animals first, even during Halloween.”
