American Animal Welfare Society is
Helping animals in need while protecting the right to own and enjoy animals.
Countless people and their pets have been impacted by the devastation brought by Hurricane Katrina. In the aftermath of this storm, the American Animal Welfare Society and affiliated organizations are working to provide relief where it is most needed by animals and the people helping them. If any from the professional pet industry would like to assist please contact Rocky McMahan at 417-437-2512 who is helping coordinate those efforts.
Many animals are still in need of transportation, temporary housing, veteraniry care, medical supplies, food, caging, etc.
We would like to thank those who have already come forward:
• AVID has offered scanners to help those on the ground reunite microchipped animals with their owners.
• Trans Pet has offered trucks fuel and drivers to transport animals to suitable shelters.
• PBT for collecting and forwarding donations.
• United All Breed Registry for sponsoring veterinary care and medicine for the immediate need of the animals.
• Countless volunteers enduring the worst of conditions while working for the welfare of the animals and the expressions of satisfaction they receive from reuniting owners with their pets.
We would like to thank the professional pet industry for coming forward showing their support and concern for both animals and their owners in this time of need.
