How To Help Animals In The Wake Of The Oil Spill

In the coming days our country will begin to suffer the consequences of the worst oil spill in  U.S. history.   The aftermath of the spill will be truly devasting to animals and their habitats across the gulf coast.   PATH (People Protecting Animals & Their Habitats) has determined a need for logistical, supply and rescue support will be needed for months to come.   Founder Kelly Overton will be leaving NYC to travel to the gulf  region and mobilize a central supply and rescue/information center in the wake of the oil spill.   PATH volunteers are currently establishing supply/donation drop sites in locations across the country.   The supplies and donations secured at these sites will be efficiently sent to PATH’s central location in the gulf region  and then distributed to areas of most need.   GirlieGirl Army members: saddle up your support
