Remembering Hurricane Katrina Rescue – Then and Now!
In October of 2005 staff from 3 clinics in Delta went to assist in New Orleans after the devastating hurricane. Thousands of animals were abandoned after families were unable to care for their pets as they attempted to rebuild their lives. Along with the Homeless Animal Fund, we assisted in finding homes for 22 dogs (plus Maggie’s 8 puppies) and 2 cats that otherwise might have been euthanized. With the help of World CourierTM the animals were flown here for medical care and adoption. Many were treated for heartworm and other life-threatening medical conditions before finding them new, forever homes here in B.C.
A few of the other pets who found wonderful homes are:
