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 www.animalrescueneworleans.org
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.
