Largest Pet Rescue Operation in History

When Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana, more than 250,000 pets were left to fend for themselves. Some owners had left food and water for their pets expecting to return within a few days. Those travelling on goverment provided transport were not permitted to take their pets with them and had to leave them behind.

The owners were unable to return for their pets and the food ran out. Dogs and cats were forced to survive without their owners. Animal rescuers, shelters and Humane Societies from all over the USA and Canada sent volunteers to the flooded area to rescue as many animals as they could. They searched flooded towns house by house looking for pets that had been locked in. Thousands of lucky pets were rescued and transported to rehoming centers in the USA and Canada. Some of the dogs and cats were reunited with their owners months later, others found a new home. Some people are still looking for their pets.

Dana Deutsch: "Most of you following my photostreams are aware of the two previous trips to New Orleans and Gulfport, MS area I have made. I thought I had seen some horrible things, which I had. The two of them together can begin the equal the horrible things I saw on this trip. I went down as part of Operation Bring Animals Home. We had a four person team and were out for Search and Rescue. Caution, there are some pictures that might be upsetting. There are stories regarding dogs shot in high schools. Some of those pictures are included. We were at two of the high schools that this happened in. The reasons this happened are not known. I just know that if this was done out of hate, I hope whoever did this pays. I have some very graphic photos of the dogs that I will not put on, but will give yall an idea of what it was like being there."
