“Perhaps adding a link or two for rescue organizations
Sponsoring adoptions may enhance your article.
At least people willing to open their home and heart
Will know who to contact.”

The American Veterinary Association estimates that there were at least 50,000 pets living in New Orleans alone prior to Hurricane Katrina. If you add the thousands of other pets living in the many other devastated cities and towns along the Gulf Coast, the number is staggering.
Thousands of them have now been rescued, but very sadly, thousands of family pets left homeless by Katrina are still on the loose, still facing hunger and disease, still wandering aimlessly near their destroyed homes, and still in desperate need of our help.
But a very crucial link in our pet rescue chain has now been broken because we have virtually nowhere left around the country to send these ‘left behind’ dogs and cats.
Almost every animal shelter and humane society in America today is overflowing with adorable, deserving, affectionate dogs and cats, in desperate need of new homes.
Please find it in your heart to adopt at least one pet - any pet - from your local animal shelter or humane society to make space for yet another Katrina orphan still being pulled from the Gulf Coast devastation today – nearly five months after Hurricane Katrina wreaked her havoc on their lives.
Please be a link in this National Chain of Life.
Please send a link to the web page listed below to every animal lover you know in America; so they, too, can help spread the word - and perhaps, adopt a pet themselves.
This web page provides pictures and descriptions of sheltered dogs and cats very near your own home – that are hoping to be loved – and desperately waiting to be found – by a compassionate human being - just like you.
