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: [email protected]



Please contact at any time, day or night.

These volunteers, rescuers and shelter workers are

working around the clock.



PLEASE re-post this even IF...

you have no space, someone else may, thank you so much~



So, I ask that you help see that this email gets to "helping hands..."



thank you...

So far I have been all over the place:



$60 to HSUS Katrina relief http://www.hsus.org

$25 to Pet Finder Disaster Relief http://www.petfinder.org

$10 to American Red Cross 1-800-HELP NOW

$5 to Food Not Bombs Katrina Relief http://www.foodnotbombs.net/

$50 to Mercy Corps Katrina Relief http://www.mercycorps.org



My employer matched $2 for every $1 donated to Mercy Corps



Total I have given is $150

I've been hearing a lot about this organization lately. They are rescuing, transporting, and trying to adopt out animals who were already in shelters when the hurricane hit, leaving room down there for temporarily displaced animals who have families still searching for them.



You can search rescued adoptable dogs and cats and/or find donation info on their website. They are also in need of donated cargo vans to transport animals and supplies.

Howard Stern's girlfriend Beth has been doing a lot of promotion for the North Shore Animal League for the hurricane relief. She has been saying a lot of great things about them and Stern has been giving the agency a lot of air time to talk about what they are doing for the hurricane relief & what they need. I was looking forward to sending them a donation until I saw they have a very poor rating from charitynavigator.org

I heard things way, way in the past about NSAL too. Something to the effect of them not doing all they claim to do and just pocketing money. But like I said, this was years ago, so they could be totally different now.

what i'm wondering is what they're doing with all the water. i hope they have some way of getting it out of the cities without just dumping it into the lakes and rivers, full of sewage and all





also once things are cleaned up and people can start rebuilding i imagine they'll need tons more donations for the charities that will help with that. that is, if they can/choose to ever rebuild, has anyone heard anything about it?

I was wondering that the other day. I found out it's being drained into Lake Pontchartrain (sp?) and the Mississippi River. It's going to kill everything.

I finally made a donation to the Red Cross. My company is matching employee donations made through December so that's nice.



Wow... I didn't realize we were keeping track of donations for the tsunami, that's pretty impressive.

Yes, billions and billions of gallons of the water is being pumped directly into the lake and yes there will be unimaginable damage done.

I made a donation to the Canadian Red Cross, to the Hurricane Katrina fund. My money seems like very little, but I am glad I could help, even in a small way. I am thankful for my family, and all that I have.

i read somewhere that they are filtering the water for bodies before it goes into the lake and river. i would hate to have to be that person that cleans the screens out.



the lake was finally starting to clean up a bit too...

I bought a couple of prints from Seige. The money is going to help his family who lost everything. His blog is just heartbreaking. http://operationeden.blogspot.com/

Want to donate to a vegetarian food relief organization? Food For Life is the largest vegetarian food relief organization in the world. Type in ffl.org after the 3w's in the url box. (sorry, I had to do it like this, something about you have to have 15 posts before you can put in a link, but I think this is important so I had to think of a way around it) They have been distributing free vegetarian meals on the Gulf Coast and in New Orleans for years. I know that they are serving meals on the Gulf Coast, I just spoke with one of the workers last week. (He said the Red Cross was giving them a hard time because they didn't serve meat) I am fairly sure the New Orleans kitchen is shut down for a while, but they will reopen, no serious flooding where it is located.

So, of you want to donate to an organization that serves only vegetarian food this is it. It is international too!
