Animal help for Katrina victims September 09, 2005 9:57 AM
According to the Humane Society, there may be as many as 50,000 pets still stranded in the areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina, without food or water, scared and alone. Thousands of pets have been rescued so far and placed in shelters, and thousands more will hopefully follow. While this is wonderful, these animal welfare organizations survive on donations and will need tremendous financial support in order to continue caring for these pets for months to come.
Please consider donating to one or more of the organizations listed below. Even small donations of $5 or $10 can make a difference. YOU can make a difference.
