Subject: Where to find lost animals from Katrina-PetFinders
From: Judy Burke:
Petfinder.com has unveiled a comprehensive animal emergency response system helping companion animal victims and their caretakers during disasters. This is a collaborative database linking information from the public and emergency response organizations and making it available to rescuers, victims, and volunteers.
The database features the following:
*displaced hurricane victims post the locations of their pets so that rescuers can go in and save them
*rescuers post the descriptions and photos of pets they find making them available for distraught pet parents to find them
*volunteers post their offers of foster care which displaced hurricane victims can search to find temporary care for their pets
This is a collaborative effort powered by Maddie's Fund and a coalition of organizations who are all working together to assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Thanks to: American Humane Association, Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Society, LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, United Animal Nations (EARS), IFAW and Code 3 Associates, Alley Cat Allies and everyone who has come together to put the pets first.
Visit disaster.petfinder.com for the database
