DJ Pauly D Teams with ASPCA to Help Animals Affected by Hurricane Sandy

For six seasons cameras captured his every move on the hit series Jersey Shore, and now DJ Pauly D is using his star power to focus the lens on pets in need.

The reality TV personality has helped efforts to change the present reality of animals affected by superstorm Sandy by teaming with the ASPCA for a PSA which highlights their plight.

“I am thrilled to be working with the ASPCA,” said Pauly D. “I have loved animals my entire life, so it’s nice to be a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves. So many lives have been devastated by this storm, including those of pets, and it’s comforting to know that people have a place to take their animals for temporary shelter until they can get back on their feet.”

Providing support in Sandy-affected areas since the storm, to date the ASPCA has established a temporary boarding facility to care for the pets of guardians who are working to get back on their feet; offered free veterinary care services to more than 250 animals via a wellness mobile clinic; rescued more than 300 animals and provided pet supplies to more than 16,000 animals throughout the region.
