A Note From Some Compassionate Friends

From F.U.N (Folk Uke News):

On August 29, 2005, hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, changing the face of the city forever. A group of people rallied to save the thousands of hurricane-affected animals. From this, grew Animal Rescue New Orleans, a non-profit organization run by local volunteers who continue to rescue and care for the animals. Seven months later, there are still thousands of animals living in the most devastated parts of the city. Volunteers go out to 250 square miles of the city to fill food and water stations and trap many animals that are still out there.

Animal Rescue New Orleans is in need of volunteers, food, and donations. Many of the cats and dogs that have been sighted at food and
water stations are pets that were once owned and the owners are still trying to find them. These people are depending on us to feed their pets until they can be trapped and reunited with their families.

There are many different opportunities to help. If you can't make it to New Orleans, and you can't afford to donate, there are still ways that you can help from home.

for more information on how to help.

Thanks,Amy and Cathy
