Fosters needed for Katrina animal refugees

#1 Postby robert » Thu Sep 08, 2005 8:24 pm

I posted this here because Gen Discussion gets the most views and this is an urgent topic:

Fosters needed for Katrina animal refugees

Transport Provided to Anywhere - Room Desperately Needed for the Animal
Victims of Katrina

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.

REMEMBER THESE ANIMALS WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO YOU.

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 Lynda V. at: 203 515 3024 (cell)
Home: 203 227 5308
Email: Lynda@portone.com
Please contact at any time, day or night. These volunteers, rescuers
and shelter workers are working around the clock.

This e-mail was forwarded to me from an animal rights friend of mine, so I assume it is accurate. Sorry the e-mail bounced back. I hope the other contact info works.

I know there are many stranded animals so if anyone can take them it, that would be great, or know anyone who is interested in taking the animals in so they have somewhere to stay.

Thanks,

Robert

Hey robert,

How about you and Megan? Cant you take another cat or dog?

I will be taking some if they can bring them to me, although I doubt it cuz I am all the way in Toronto.

BUt I am sure a few Americans here can find a place for them in their homes, at least temporarily? :cry:
