PetFinder.com Katrina Updates
http://www.petfinder.com/disaster/ Alerts and updates on animal welfare relief efforts during disasters and emergencies. There are numerous trained animal rescue personnel on the ground in both Louisiana and Mississippi, as most of the national animal welfare groups have teams of employees and trained volunteers on site with their rescue equipment to complement the local rescue groups. In Louisiana, rescue efforts in the hard hit area of New Orleans were being conducted primarily by local agencies, like the LA SPCA and animal control organizations. However, they had to stop some of these operations due to the mounting violence in the area. Efforts are on-going to move animals from the temporary animal shelters to out-of-state shelters. In Mississippi, the MS Animal Rescue League has been staffing the animal evacuation shelter at the state fairgrounds, which is located near the evacuation shelter for humans. The fairgrounds are also serving as the staging area for the national groups, which were just allowed to go south of Hattiesburg into the hardest hit areas. The rescue team from HSUS were able to assist the Humane Society of Southern Mississippi in transporting over 130 animals out of devastated Gulfport, MS to the evacuation shelter in Jackson.
