Blogs Across America

The Blogsphere is joining forces for another good cause.

Blogs today will be joining Hugh Hewit and Evil Glen to generate support, for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Alot of support and money is going towards the human victims of Hurricane Katrina, but most have forgotten about man's best friend. The pets.

Even with having our puppies only 4 months I know at this point I could not part with them. They are part of my family, I think of them as my kids.

Most people that evacuated did think of their pets and brought them with them, but with the cost that evacuating and losing eveything they own is having on people they might not be able to keep fido or fluffy with them. Some could not take them with them so they left them home in hopes they would make it. The Humane Society of the United States has set out to make sure the victims are able to feed and care for and help them find their furry family members.

From the Humane Societies page:

More than 30 experienced HSUS rescue staff and volunteers trained in animal rescue from 12 states are coordinating with state officials, federal agencies, and other rescue organizations to start evacuating animals out of the most-affected areas. They'll also begin establishing pet-friendly shelters and delivering supplies, resources and medical assistance.
