SLIDESHOW: Animal Rescue teams prepare to support Gulf Coast effort during Hurricane Isaac

Now classified as a true hurricane, Isaac is forecasted to bring heavy rains and winds across several states along the Gulf Coast of the United States.

As one of the founding members of the National Animal Rescue and Sheltering Coalition, or NARSC, the International Fund for Animal Welfare is mobilizing its Animal Rescue teams to help shelter and transport the animal victims of Hurricane Isaac. 

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, IFAW began to train Gulf Coast partners in water animal rescue as well as providing boats and rescue equipment. 

Those partners are also on high alert and ready to assist wherever needed. 

Stay tuned for updates as we keep an eye on the storm’s path and intensity.
