Chloe and Gracie

My trip to Kansas City wasn't really supposed to involve direct animal rescue (I'm out here to get a truck that will be useful come the next Katrina), but I found these two running down the road and was able to corral them using my belt and a piece of electrical wire. I quarantined them in my cousin's yard so that they could pose for this "found" photo. Pit mixes, they were very sweet and somewhat well-trained. Needless to say their owner was overjoyed to get them back.

Animal Rescue for Hurricane Gustav

After Gustav people were not allowed to return to their homes, and many animals were captured on the streets or surrendered to shelters.

Companion Animal Network and Bayou Rescue joined forces to evacuate 41 animals from the Ascension Parish Animal shelter to points north (North Carolina and New York) where they will be adopted into their forever homes.

Needless to say, it was hot and dirty. The smell of dead animals, so familiar after Katrina, was present in many neighborhoods.

Read more about the rescue effort, as well as the personal story of my family's ordeal in Baton Rouge, at and Tax-deductible donations are gratefully accepted through Bayou Rescue; designate your contribution as "D. Rollins rescue".
