I know this is a very dumb question but please forgive me as I am a Canadian.
I live in an area that is not bothered by floods, tornadoes, hurricanes or other similar weather. But I do remember vividly watching all about the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. I also remember all of the animals who were forced to survive as best they could alone. Many did survive and many did not.
As I read the information on the website of the ASPCA – I learned just how horrible it was. My own dog, Buck the beagle, is a rescue from a shelter in Ontario, but his story is nowhere near as heart wrenching as the animals after Katrina. They also have a slide show of some of the rescues and it went straight to my heart. If you look at each face, you will see looks of fear, relief, gratefulness, sadness, anticipation, confusion or loneliness. This was the biggest animal rescue in history. So many animal lovers helped save many of those animals with their search efforts, adoptions, temporary care, and donations. But it doesn’t stop there.
The ASPCA is still out there helping animals with legislation, education, and caring. As the IndieSmiles Charity Birthday Bash continues all month, please take the time to visit them and donate. There are still so many cats, dogs, horses, birds and numerous other pets out there needing help. There is never a need to great, never a donation too small and never an animal not worth the time. Just look at your own pet(s) and you will understand.
