Stranded Dogs To Be Shot in New Orleans in less then 72 hours

BOAT OWNERS! Boats are urgently needed. Flat bottomed boats, canoes, anything that can be used to travel around the flooded streets of New Orleans, and which is big enough to hold rescued animals. You must be able to transport the boat to the Louisiana SPCA ( /) shelter established at 9093 St. Landry Rd., Gonzales, LA 70737. HSUS volunteer Linda Nealon can be contacted at Gonzales on (225) 647 0712, but that line is very busy. Bring a boat and it WILL be used. See also

Sept 9th 4:03pm PST Authorities have informed our rescue team that they have three days to rescue all dogs before they start shooting them. They believe that dogs are eating dead bodies to stay alive and need to eliminate them. We are outraged. Animal rescue groups were not allowed into the water until last Tuesday. To give us just another 72 hours to get a job, of biblical proportions done, is ludicrous. We are doing our best to beg for more time.
