Many, if not all of us, who RV are animal lovers and the plight of animals made homeless by Hurricane Katrina is only now receiving attention. I found out today that the College of Veterinary Medicine at LSU has taken in thousands of stranded and homeless pets. Many owners have claimed their pets, but many more are unclaimed. Students and faculty are taking care of them free of charge, but costs are escalating and money is needed to defray the costs associated with the treatment and care of these homeless pets. Please make donations to the Spirit of Veterinary Medicine fund at
https://www.vin.com/donate. Make sure you select the Spirit of Veterinary Medicine fund. This is a secure website, and all of the money donated goes directly to LSU College of Veterinary Medicine for care of homeless Katrina animals.

The University of GA vet school is sending a convoy of vehicles to LSU to bring some of these unclaimed pets back to UGA where they will be cared for and homes sought for them. Again, students, staff and faculty will donate their time. Keep a lookout at Petfinders.com for a list of pets available for adoption.

Hi Doggievet, thanks for reposting on the LSU vet. working on saving the Katrina animal victims.

I had posted their direct site at http://www.vetmed.lsu.edu/ for people who would rather send material (canned dog/cat food etc). They have listed their needs on that web site.

Keep up the good work and thanks again.

We're getting cats in this area, that were already in the shelters, to make room for the hurrican animals, so they can keep them in the area for owners to claim. The place I volunteer with has full cages right now, so they can't take more local animals. We'll have pet adoption clinics nightly to hopefully get some of the cats adopted out and free up more cages.

If I may, here's another plug for an organization that is helping the animals down there. They are actually based in Kanab, UT and have a large no-kill animal sanctuary there. Their vets and other staff members have travelled to the affected areas to help. Their name is "Best Friends". We visited there recently on our trip around the country and my family was so impressed that we gave up our day at Zion to volunteer and give attention to the animals there. There web site is....

Doggievet,

I would invite everyone to check out the local computer club, Cajun Clickers Computer Club and see how the folks are assisting to reunite the pets with their owners.
