Photocopy of a handwritten flier that includes a copy of a business card for Daphna Nachaminovitch, the manager of the Domestic Animal Issues & Abuse Department of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). The flier reads: "URGENT!!! Do you know of an animal whose person is missing?! PLEASE call the above number immediately!"
Soon after the Twin Towers fell, the ASPCA began fielding calls from lower Manhattan residents who had been forced to evacuate their homes and were unable to return for pets that had been left behind during the crisis. Other requests for assistance came from relatives and friends of pet owners who were missing or believed to have been killed in the attacks.
