A friend of mine who has been actively involved in the animal rescue efforts in and near New Orleans since shortly after hurricane Katrina reminded me recently that they are still looking for homes for animals rescued in the aftermath of Katrina.

A website where you can learn what you can do to help is

According to the website, approximately 13,000 animals were rescued in the few months following Katrina and 40,000 more still were roaming the streets, most not spayed or neutered. These 40,000 have continued to breed in these last few years. Many of these are still coming in to the shelter. The problem is overwhelming!!!

Animal Rescue New Orleans is a no kill shelter. They are doing their best to care for this huge number of animals and find them good homes. With so few people having returned to New Orleans in the last few years they don't have enough people in the area to adopt. They are looking for homes outside the area. They can sometimes get airlines to donate the travel for an animal being adopted. If you aren't able to adopt, please pass this information on to anyone and everyone you know who might be interested.
