|Gustav heading to NOLA on Katrina 3 Year Anniversary
August 29, 2008
Help is needed in NOLA now and after the storm.
As predictions stand now Hurricane Gustave is due to hit the area of New Orleans late Monday. The track changes frequently so plans will change accordingly.
Volunteers are needed for immediate dispatch to New Orleans in Jefferson Parish to aid with pet evacuations and man checkpoints. Please plan to be self sufficient. Some cots are available but others will need to stay in their cars overnight. Help is needed all day Saturday and you will likely be moving out on Sunday as the storm approaches.
Help will be needed again after the storm. Updates will be sent out. Please email if you are available to help in NOLA after Tuesaday of next week. (This day could change).
If you can get to NOLA by tomorrow morning please contact KAT 5:
Places are also needed to evacuate to for about 200 dogs and cats from Jefferson Parish. This number changes by the hour. Please send out to all rescues. Muttshack is providing transport. Please contact KAT 5 if you are a rescue able to take in animals evacuated.
Donations are welcome for gas, supplies, etc. One hundred percent of donations will go to help the animals and rescues assisting them. We are a 501c3 non-profit. For donation information please go to:
Thank you to all for what you have done for the animals in the past after Katrina and now. Please crosspost.
