When I went to do Clean & Feed at Good Mews yesterday morning, I met three new residents in Intake. Nola (a gorgeous Russian Blue mix), Lucy, and Lizzie (a pair of real cuddlebugs) were rescued, along with three kittens in Isolation that I didn’t meet, from Slidell by one of our volunteers. Shannon says we have another ten or so cats coming in just a couple of days from Best Friends/No Homeless Pets — they have evidently transported HUNDREDS of cats and dogs from the devastated area to Atlanta for fostering and eventual new Forever Homes.
Even though thousands of companion animals no doubt died in this tragedy, at least some of them have been rescued and helped. We “do what we can, where we are, with what we have.”
