ASPCA Disaster Response Team...
Following up on the plight of pets during emergency evacuations the ASPCA has an update on their work with those who were forced to evacuate during Hurricane Gustav last week: "ASPCA Disaster Response Team Helps Keep Pets Safe During Hurricane Gustav." Let's hope things go equally well with those dealing with Hurricane Hanna, and possibly Hurricane Ike next week!
And in case you're wondering, the picture of the gorgeous greyhound is my buddy George (my newly adopted "nephew"). He lives in Jacksonville, FL. His mom, SVH, is one of my very best friends. She's done a wonderful thing by adopting a retired greyhound. It's absolutely horrible to think that there was a time not too long ago, that when greyhounds were retired at the age of two or three, they were shot and left for dead. Now with adoptions, these greyhounds get to live the full lives they deserve to live. There are many websites out there on greyhound adoptions, but consider starting at Adopt a Greyhound, which has lots of helpful information and a list of authorized participating agencies across the country.
