When H.A.L.O., a No-Kill rescue animal shelter in Sebastian, Florida, received 83 dogs and 1 cat who had been rescued from The Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and Walt Disney World Textile Services jumped in to help out by donating much needed linens. 600 pieces of linen were donated, and were delivered by cast members who stayed to enjoy playtime with the animals.
After Hurricane Dorian moved through The Bahamas, the Humane Society of Grand Bahama was left without medical supplies or food for the animals. In partnership with H.A.L.O., they formed a rescue plan to help the 83 dogs and 1 cat and bring them to Florida.
H.A.L.O.’s Director of Development, Allyson Bootes, had this to say: “We are so appreciative of the linen donation and the help we received from the Cast Members down the road at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort…We were in a critical period of need after the hurricane, and this support could not have come at a better time!”
