In its wake, Sandy has left rubble, flooding, widespread devastation... tens of billions of dollars in damage to our national infrastructure and immeasurable human damage. We at the Acres have relatives, loved ones - both human and canine - residing in and directly affected by this catastrophic event, and our hearts and thoughts go out to them and all their northeast neighbors forced to rebuild in the coming weeks. For our part, we're providing links to helpful information and several important disaster relief efforts. We hope you will show your support as we have:
