Foreclosed Animals

Mike Taibbi of NBC Nightly News tonight did a poignant story about the plight of animals whose owners have faced foreclosure. But the animals he covered are the lucky ones. They have been taken in by shelters and sanctuaries such as The Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, NY, a nonprofit haven for abused, abandoned, and neglected horses and farm animals. Since 2001, it has provided a safe and loving refuge for more than 1000 animals and birds. With its rafters full to capacity, the Sanctuary is currently expanding, in an effort to accommodate the overflow of hapless creatures who are the silent victims of the current real estate downturn.
