Twenty-two months post Katrina. Less than half of the people have returned, while many who have returned, have decided to leave again, for good.

However, the forgotten Katrina refugees, the animals, have no choice. They remain, living in the debris, surviving on feeding stations or whatever food sources they can find. Most N.O. pets were not spayed/neutered, therefore, generations of additional homeless animals have been born over the past 22 months.

I have continued my journey to save these forgotten animals, a journey that I thought would last a couple of months; then 6 months surely would be it; perhaps I'll continue till the year anniversary; but 22 months later, I see no end. Groups have helped with TNR to control the population of homeless animals, but thousands remain. While some areas are thriving with residents and businesses, in many areas of New Orleans, as well as parishes such as St. Bernard and Plaquemines, one can travel for miles and see nothing but total devastation. Yet dogs and cats live among this devastation. To hear the animals cry, to see them watching as we fill food pans, and to see them waiting at f/w stations--it's heartbreaking.
The following video describes the devastated areas of New Orleans and the animals who live there. Most of the animals shown are not emaciated, or even very skinny. We provide healthy food for them, food that lasts approximately 3 days. They must learn to search for food, and they do so during the remaining 4 days. However, by feeding day, they are starving, and they wait at the feeding stations.
