We're deeply concerned by the devastation caused by Hurricaine Katrina in Louisiana and Mississippi. We're particularly concerned about the pets that were left behind. We know that some people were able to swim out with their pets, but many people were forced to evacuate without them. They need help getting out. Wayne Pacelle, president and chief executive of the Humane Society of the United States, said, "In New Orleans alone, we think there are 50,000 pets." Once they are rescued, funding is still needed to provide food and shelter to these refugee animals until they can be reunited with their owners.
