The AVMA is leading the effort to assist veterinary practices as well as animals affected by Superstorm Sandy. The group has sent a representative to work with the federal government on plans for aid and rebuilding and is organizing supply distribution. Its foundation is also accepting applications for grants. "Organizations like the AVMA are uniquely qualified to understand the needs of veterinarians in an emergency," said Dr. Douglas Aspros, president of the AVMA. "We can't always provide everything that they might need, but we can provide help in a strategic and effective way."
