Furry Friends Need You!

The city of Atlanta – among other cities in the U.S. – has shown an outpouring of desire to help the victims of the hurricane. I feel a bit better about mankind when I see this sort of thing. People here in Atlanta, like my friend Jeanneís father, are even willing to open their homes to complete strangers who are in need of shelter.

But there are helpless individuals who cannot use a cell phone or flag down a rescue helicopter and be saved. While companion animals have not been altogether ignored in this tragedy, it is clear that they are being put on the ìback burnerî so to speak, which of course must be done. I still struggle with this though, because they (and children) are the most innocent and helpless victims in this situation.

So, since Atlanta is being so wonderful about offering help to our human friends, maybe some of us can also extend a helping hand to our pawed companions. Please visit the links below to see how you can help.

    Noah’s wish is also asking people to foster pets that are being rescued who’s owners are currently without permanent residence. They will provide transportation pretty much anywhere within 2-3 hours of the disaster. Their link is http://noahswish.com/index.htm
