Exclamation Help the animal victims of Katrina!

PLEASE POST/FORWARD THIS TO ANYONE WHO MAY BE WILLING OR ABLE TO HELP. OUR HOSPITAL (CAROLINA VETERINARY SPECIALISTS) IS GATHERING A DONATION SUPPLY BETWEEN THE EMPLOYEES AND I MIGHT BE ABLE TO PICK UP SUPPLIES IN THE AREA THIS WEEKEND IF OTHER ARRANGEMENTS CANNOT BE MADE FOR DIRECT DROP OFF.

PayPal donations are also welcome if you're not in the Charlotte, NC area.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Dear fellow animal lovers,

Project HALO is in the process of coordinating a trip to the flood ravaged areas of MS, AL, and LA to help rescue the displaced and injured animals. We did this when Floyd hit our coast and we're being called upon again. I just spoke with the NC Director of EARS (Emergency Animal Rescue Services) and she expects us to be deployed as early as Monday, 9/5. I expected to be able to leave earlier, but right now understand they're focusing on human rescue and as we all know, the animals' needs will be the last to be addressed. Following is a list of items I've been told are needed:

Advantage/Frontline/Heartgard
Plastic pet carriers
Leashes/Collars
Food/Water Bowls
Zip Ties
Litter/Litter Boxes/Litter scoops
Duct Tape
Wet Ones/Handiwipes
Paper Towels
Plastic Trash Bags
Tarps
Plastic or rubber gloves
Sharpie Pens
Bug Spray for the volunteers
Polaroid Film
Polaroid Cameras
Any type of wound dressing material (gauze, tape, wound wash, etc)

If any of you have a good relationship with your vet, see if they will donate some medical supplies. We need everything to set up a triage area for the injured.

As always, Project HALO will gladly supply a donation receipt for any and all donations. If you can't get supplies to us, then you're welcome to make a monetary donation via PayPal on our homepage of the website at http://www.projecthalo.petfinder.com. We can make tax-free purchases at Petsmart. Every penny we save counts! We want the Bow Wow Bus loaded with supplies for these innocent victims. So many are left behind and forgotten when a disaster like this hits. It's our responsibility as an animal loving community to help. Project HALO will supply the transportation and gas along with volunteers, we just need your help with the supplies. Please forward this to anyone you think may be able to assist us.
You may contact me directly at 704-395-2997 or 704-562-8939 to coordinate dropping off.

Sincerely,
Rhonda Thomas
Project HALO

Our practice itself is sending a bunch of supplies, thanks to the practice owners.
If anyone in the area has things they can donate, I'm happy to pick them up and will get them to Project HALO.

PLEASE PEOPLE! THIS IS WHY WE HAVE TO HELP!!!!

Look at the face of this poor dog as his owner leaves him. I've haven't cried so hard in a long time.

Consider fostering dogs and/or cats!! Go to the craig's list! Go to petfinder.com. They've set up a message board just for this.

This was just posted on Petfinder.com forum:

Three hours ago on FOX TV one of the boat people bragged about forcing a woman to leave behind her three young Rottweiler puppies -- he said there would never be any room on the boats for animals; his other comment "they seemed healthy" as if the puppies could somehow survive on their own surrounded by contaminated floor waters!

The media in a boat passed a large, light tan dog stuck in a tree looking terrified out of his mind. Noone stopped to help him.
