KATRINA ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE - WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7
Sent: September 7, 2005
We have now rescued 480 dogs and cats and have reunited a total of 50 with their owners. In addition, we have relocated 18 people WITH their animals.
You may have seen a piece on CNN that showed rescue of a very sick man whose collie was running alongside the boat in which he was being transported. The dog tried to get in the boat but was pushed back and finally gave up. We have rescued that collie, who has his tags on with his person's name. He is now with a lady who lives nearby and WHO will care for him until (hopefully) his owner recovers and they can be reunited.
You may also have seen a piece on Fox News about a Mississippi lady who refused to leave her home without her dog. One of our volunteers has taken her both people and dog food and she is now able to stay at her home, which was not extensively damaged. She is also taking care of some of the dogs we have rescued.
Home Depot and Wal-Mart stores in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi have offered us any salvagable building materials free of charge. This is a BIG help, as we don't have to purchase fencing, cages and other materials for this purpose.
OUR MAJOR NEED (STILL) IS FUEL. PLEASE HELP US BY SENDING A DONATION VIA PAYPAL (DIRECTIONS ON OUR WEBSITE), PREPAID GAS CARDS TO CAROLYN KEETON AT 4907 23RD BOULEVARD, VALLEY AL 36854, OR MONEY VIA WESTERN UNION TO CAROLYN AT VALLEY AL OR BARRY HARBIN AT ALBERTVILLE AL.
PLEASE CALL CAROLYN AT 334 319 1045 OR EMAIL BARRY AT firstname.lastname@example.org IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS.
