A Petition to Protect the Animal Victims of Hurricane Katrina

Thousands of dogs, cats, and other animals have been stranded along the U.S. Gulf Coast as a result of the hurricane. Rescue workers in New Orleans denied pets entry to some shelters and often refused to allow animals aboard evacuation vehicles.

I just recieved an e-mail regarding the developments on the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Somewhat relieved to know that there is an active effort done by the locals to rescue abondoned pets. I'd like to share some of the pictures from National Geographic, I encourage you to visit the website, heart breaking pictures of the other victims of Katrina.

Please help by signing this petition. It takes 30 seconds and will really help. Animals can survive on this water, but they are going to starve to death and the contaminated water will shortly start to kill them. Many are chained and cannot get food.

Near New Orleans a small oil-slickened dog was seen wandering in Chalmette, Louisiana
