Kesha Floods Nashville Animal Shelter With Kibble

Published by PETA.

 

What’s the first thing that animal-friendly pop star Ke$ha did after flying in to her flooded hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, recently? She bought 1,000 pounds of dog and cat food and dropped it off at the Nashville Metro Animal Shelter! The guardian of five beloved rescued dogs, Ke$ha just had to help after hearing that the shelter was overwhelmed with animals who had been turned over by their guardians or abandoned in flooded homes without any food or drinking water following Tennessee’s historic floods. To help even more, Ke$ha is also holding a benefit concert with all proceeds going to help families and animals affected by the floods. Two paws up for your compassion, Ke$ha!

The flooding in Tennessee is a reminder that natural disasters can strike anywhere, anytime, so it’s vital to make emergency evacuation plans that include our animal companions. TVs, couches, and even homes are replaceable, but best friends aren’t!
