Responding to the Destruction of Katrina: Emails from the front

FOR RELEASE: Sept. 16, 2005 from Dr. Nishi Dhupa

Drs. Steffey and Krotscheck are in New Orleans today working with sicker animals in a Humane Society shelter. Dr. Steffey tells me that they are in the Garden district, and there are boats in the streets, overturned cars and more destruction than she ever imagined. The Humane Society is now doing food and water drops around the city as there are too many displaced animals to handle one-on-one.
