Pets Alive says the cause of the damage is currently under investigation but is asking for public help in housing 100 dogs, 80 cats and 5 bunnies that currently live in the unstable structure.
Other organizations in the area have offered some help, but Pets Alive is asking for additional help in adopting or fostering these animals.
Those able to help with rehoming are urged to go to the rescue at 100 South Warehouse Lane, Elmsford, NY 10523 to be paired with animals that are a good fit for their home. On Sunday, the organization will work with partner rescues to place any remaining animals.
The organization is working closely with engineers, contractors and their insurance company to stabilize the foundation of the building and determine next steps in ensuring the issue is resolved. Those interested in adopting or fostering a cat, dog or rabbit should visit Pets Alive Westchester as soon as possible to find out who will be the best fit for their home. During this time phones are limited so if necessary the organization is asking to be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
