Breed Specific Rescue Groups
I Have seen no breed specific posts from Westie or Cairn rescuers... I found the following, please someone contact them or post on the Petfinder messageboard.
>>Breed specific hurricane rescue - Please post far and wide
*Please PLEASE to Cross Post!*
Hi, my name is Ruby Smith, volunteer with the Humane Society of West Louisiana! We are fielding HUNDREDS of calls from people effected by Hurricane Katrina because we are the closest Humane Society with a working telephone! (appx 4 hours west of New Orleans in Rosepine, LA) We are doing all we can but have one big problem. SPACE! We are taking as many strays from the area as possible but are having hard time finding room for the family owned pets that are having to be given up! These are people who have NO choice but to give up their beloved pets due to this catastrophe. We are looking for help from Breed Specific Rescues to find homes for these babies! Currently we have
4yo Cocker Spaniel.
If you know anyone involved in these rescues, or any other rescue group who are willing to help out please contact the Humane Society of West Louisiana!
It is feasible that we will be getting more and more calls from owners who are having to make the choice of surrendering their pets but we just do not
have the room for them! Thank you So much and please, continue to pray for the victims of Katrina, both human and pets!
