There is transportation provided, with people ready and waiting, for upwards of 200 dogs and 150 cats so far rescued from the devastation of hurricane Katrina. What these animals need is a place to go. Kennels, boarding, vets offices, shelters with any extra space, foster homes and rescues. Even one or two open kennels would greatly help.

From what we know, all animals have been vaccinated and are in good health considering the conditions. There are dogs and cats of every breed and size. Some are in groups of two, three or four, hailing from the same family, while some are solitary. ANY KENNEL SPACE AVAILABLE CAN CERTAINLY BE USED. These drivers are willing to move these animals ANYWHERE they need to go. Absolutely anywhere.

The current safe houses for these animals are being inundated and some of these pets will have to be euthanized if they are not moved to make room for the incoming animals.

Please feel free to pass on this information everywhere. Every forum, every list, every community.


If you know anyone, anywhere, that is willing to take in even one cat or dog, please have them contact Lynda at the information provided below.

They are also asking for ANY kind of donations for the animals - money, food, bedding, water, etc.

Please contact at any time, day or night. These volunteers, rescuers and shelter workers are working around the clock.

I just sent her an email, hopefully I will hear back from her soon!
We'd like to help in anyway. A friend of mine who lived in New Orleans lost everything as well - her family is living in a hotel in Texas right now. Please keep them in your prayers!

FYI... the email addy doesnt work anymore. You have to call her cell phone, but she doesnt answer it, she tells you to go to a website.

Yes, they will deliver to Canada, however you have to have paperwork and all that ready at customs, for the pet.

sorry if I missed it - where's the website? (I guess I could do a google, but which organization is this one?)

THey are sending everyone over to a Mississippi humane society's website. They wont take phone calls at all as they are getting thousands a day, so they are telling people they wont help you over the phone. There website doesnt state anything about these animals being Katrina victims, it just has there regular dogs and cats on there. They do have an application form you fill out, on there website, and thats about it. Its www.carams.org
