Over the last few weeks I have been in regular contact with Laura Maloney President of the LASPCA.

My initial email to her with the questions, "Laura I hope you will respond to any of these questions you feel prepared to do so. I think a lot of bad information may be being passed around. I have tried to post accurate information on my blog and would like to give you the chance to set the record straight."

The questions: (see #2-#19 in comments)

1. Yesterday in a conversation Asst. State Vet Marsha Littlefield claims that the LASPCA was responsible for shutting down the HSUS as of the end of October. Yet you told me several days ago in an email that it was not you? Can we get a straight answer? How many employees and volunteers do you have on the streets today? And what are they doing? How many “animal control” or other volunteers do you need to finish the job?

The state veterinarian and the USDA representative determined that Lamar would close on September 30 based on an early discussion about 9/30 being the date when animals could go into foster care. The LA/SPCA had nothing to do the decision to close Lamar and asked that it be extended since our facility wouldn’t be open. During the first week of October, the LA/SPCA asked the Mayor of New Orleans to contact the lessee for Lamar to ask if we could use it for animal control services. By the time the city and Lamar responded, in mid-October, we were well on our way to setting up our current facility in Algiers and couldn’t have operated two facilities.


Between Oct 1 and last week, we were blessed with significant human resource support from SPCA of Texas, San Diego Humane Society, HSUS, and the ASPCA. We had a strong operations director from Broward County Humane helping us setting-up shop.

Most people have now returned home. We now have about 6 officers on the street and the same number of people working in the shelter. Our regular LA/SPCA volunteers (pre-Katrina) are coming in to assist as well.

We are seeking volunteers to work with our ACOs and shelter staff and are accepting applications at our facility, 701 Thayer St. We’ll have the applications online soon. However, volunteer opportunities are limited until our roof is replaced. See next question.

PLEASE SEE QUESTION 2 THROUGH 19 IN THE FIRST COMMENT FIELD (CLICK COMMENTS BELOW)

Laura wants to know why anyone would spraypaint a car? Situations like this have caused tension with people as they came home. She did say in the early days the army did instruct the painting of houses.

2. Why isn’t the new shelter in Algiers open? Is this not a clear sign that you should have continued to work with the HSUS who has funds and manpower to help you?

We are still working with HSUS, ASPCA, and many others. We couldn’t have come this far without them.

Our facility is open for lost & found and our field teams bring in animals every day. The reason we haven’t opened to the public for normal animal control services is because we’d end up like Lamar-Dixon with hundreds of animals at our door (from individual rescuers and make-shift shelters) with no way to control intake. The number of animals we can bring in is dependent on the number of caregivers we have available. Many of our problems at Lamar resulted from lack of communication between the shelter and field. Intake must be managed and calls dispatched and results noted.

Additionally, we’re a legal entity in New Orleans and we are required to follow the law. The building we’re occupying has extensive roof damage and cannot be inhabited by the public. We’re in the process of getting a building permit, but God forbid, a volunteer got hurt while working. The roof is now being replaced, but it will be 10 days before the work is finished.

Our coffee warehouse-turned shelter will operate as a shelter for at least 2 years. Our facility on Japonica St was destroyed. We set-up a semi-permanent sheltering system with different housing areas for healthy, sick, and aggressive; intake areas; veterinary clinic; dog walking area; and wrote standard operating procedures for consistency in operations. All staff and volunteers follow the same protocols.

3. Are you sure you are not underestimating the resources that you need?

We need LOTS of support. Because we serve a dual mission of animal welfare and law enforcement, we must use skilled volunteers or people who are willing to work within our animal control guidelines when working the streets. Many of the people we’ve spoken to have only wanted to rescue and have no interest in the sheltering component. The number of animals rescued is dependent on the number of animals we can humanely care for onsite. I have sensed a shift recently and more people have told others (who then tell me) that they’re ready to clean cages.

4. Why not bring in teams to feed and water so they are under your control?

There were two feeding missions throughout the primary rescue period:

a. Street - we were working with feed & water teams until 2 or so weeks ago. The city’s Mosquito & Rodent Control asked us to stop feeding large bags of food as it was causing problems for residents (and them). There were still hundreds of individual rescuers feeding on the streets.

b. Animals still in homes – we continued to feed individual animals in houses until they could be removed. Our goal was to remove them ASAP and hold them in our facility where they could receive vet care, food, etc.


5. It is obvious to many of us that the list of “owner call ins” to 1800humane1 was not used effectively until very late into the crisis. Do you know why and do you have any other comments?

I could write a book on this issue.

Lamar was essentially a large sheltering and dispatching operation. We housed 1200 animals a day, minimum. It’s the largest shelter operation in history. We received calls for service and needed to dispatch those calls in an organized fashion. This is the type of work that large shelters do every day. Looking back, we needed strong shelter managers running day-to-day operations instead of those skilled in other areas of animal welfare.

Louisiana residents asked every animal organization they could find to save their pets. Unfortunately, there wasn’t one central list, but many. Every organization attempted to fulfill the requests they received from callers. We tried on several occasions to organize the lists and dispatch calls by breaking the city into quadrants. It worked for a day or two and then everyone fell back onto their own list or they’d see an animal on the street and forget the list altogether.

Another major problem was the lack of communication between the rescuer and dispatcher. The dispatcher couldn’t mark addresses off the lists since they weren’t getting the information as to where they had visited. The same addresses were being visited many times over only to find the animal had already been removed.

We also didn’t have a central dispatching software system.

In the future, I’d like to see the major players (government, national humane groups, sheltering professionals, and local organizations) work toward a national disaster plan with built-in trigger points. We could develop a central database and phone line that would be turned-on a few days before a known disaster (and immediately following a fire or some other unexpected event). Every group would know its role and we’d put our plan into action. (I developed a chart that was sent to HSUS, ASPCA, USDA, and others to share the idea).

Lets stop this rumor before it even starts. Rumor is Algiers will have to be a kill shelter. How long will Algiers hold animals? Will you work with other rescues and shelters to get animals out without euthanizing them?

The LA/SPCA is an open admission shelter, accepting any and all animals regardless of health status, age, or breed. In addition to being a non-profit, we are an animal control facility that deals with fighting dogs and aggressive animals that cannot be adopted into homes.

We have enjoyed strong relationships with rescue groups before Katrina and will continue to work with anyone that can provide our animals with good homes. We are currently transferring out all animals that shelters will accept. We do not give animals to anyone who asks, however. We have high standards of care and require references from known entities.

We legally hold animals for 5 days to allow owners an opportunity to find their pets. On the 6th day, the animal can go up for adoption. We will only euthanize an animal if he or she is unsuitable for adoption or another shelter cannot accept him and we have no space for holding the animal. We’re hoping that the desire to adopt our animals stays strong long after the rescue effort has ceased.

In the past few years, we tripled our adoption rate due to off-site adoptions, matchmaking, and greater attention to behavior problems. We expect to continue our climb in the years to come. Because many animals have been removed from the city, we don’t expect our intake to be as high as in the past. We typically took-in 1,000 animals a month. Our neighboring Jefferson Parish takes in 2,000 animals a month.

6. Why will you only credential animal control officers?

The LA/SPCA is responsible to the City of New Orleans, the animals in the city, its board of directors and residents to ensure that animal control activities are carried out by trained professionals who know the laws, and can handle aggressive animals ensuring the safety of themselves, the animal, and the public.

It’s important for people to remember that we’re a law enforcement agency. The police department cannot deputize anyone that says they want to help protect the city. We’d have vigilantes everywhere. The same applies to animal control.

We’re held legally liable for anyone that is working on our behalf.

7. Why can’t volunteers who want to feed and water animals work for the LASPCA. Why can’t you seek the assistance of volunteers who are not animal control officers to feed and water and locate animals?

We are no longer feeding in place, but capturing.

8. Another common rumor is that you will poison animals at some point or euthanize them immediately. I suspect what your answer will be but it out on the net so you might as well respond.

Poison?????? We’d prosecute anyone for doing such a thing.


9. Who will re socialize animals that have packed once they are trapped?

We find that animals that have been running the streets quickly return to normal once they’re back in a setting that reminds them of home. Each day, we walk and play with animals in our care. It’s part of normal operations. Once volunteers can safely work in the shelter, we’ll begin our socialization program that was part of normal life at Japonica St.


10. Are we not forgetting the cats in this puzzle? We are hearing daily about owners returning to find cats fat and healthy on the front porch due to feeding and watering programs? And again we have heard that information about dogs packing up but even if this is true why not feed the cats as there appears to be thousands of them in desperate need of feeding?

Interestingly, cats fared much better than dogs throughout the entire disaster. New Orleans is home to hundreds of feral cat colonies. As long as there’s a feeder, we’d ask that the colonies be maintained and not removed. We had a large, free, feral cat program pre-Katrina and hope to return to it at some point in the future.

11. Is it illegal to feed and water animals in the city? Is it illegal to enter a house where an owner has specifically requested that a rescuer do so?

It’s illegal to feed animals on public property. If a person has permission to enter a house, it’s not illegal to enter it. The problem, however, is that homes ware being entered without permission and without animals residing in them.

Last week, we attended a neighborhood meeting with a City Councilwoman, and police to answer angry questions about the “uncontrolled” animal rescuers. The community assumes it’s our organization doing the damage. Below is a photo of a car that was spray painted with the SPCA. Why paint a person’s car when another strategy could be employed? Next to it is a photo of someone’s house painted, ““go away SPCA” we’re living here. These are just a few examples.



12. Who claims that there is a big rat problem?

The City government, residents, and Rodent Control. With all the spoiling food, open containers, and debris (for cover), the rat population is getting a boost. There are huge open bags of dog/cat food throughout the city.

13. Where were you during the crisis? I mean did you work out of New Orleans or Lamar Dixon? Did you help make day to day rescue decisions?

I just wrote my personal experience for an upcoming issue of “Urbandog Magazine.” I believe they’ll be publishing it online for anyone to read.

I spent my days (and nights) at one of three places – Lamar, the City’s command center in New Orleans with police and military, and on the streets of the city.


14. Do you have a feel for how bad of system it is for an owner to search for lost animals? Can you understand how frustrated they are? Many have no Internet yet they are asked to use the Internet to find animals. The state vets first adoption date was October 15th which is seems ridiculous give that owners suffered the worse disaster It seems to defy common sense. Comments?

For those who don’t have internet, they can visit us at 701 Algiers. We’re helping people locate lost pets. They can look on the internet, talk to us, or ask us to look for them. We also have a list of organizations that accepted animals from us (it’s 5 pages long). We’ll be posting it on our website. (Personal note: our webmaster’s girlfriend jumped out of a plane and her parachute didn’t work. She broke her two feet and variety of other bones. Our webmaster hasn’t been able to upload info but will be back at work on Monday.)
Shelters holding Katrina animals have been asked to extend the holding period until mid December; many of doing so. It’s difficult for shelters to hold animals for such a long period of time as they still have to accept animals from their own communities.

60% of the animals at Lamar were pit bulls, which complicates life for most shelters.

15. Whose idea was it to spray paint on houses vs leaving a detailed note explaining where the animal had been taken to and how to reclaim it?

In the early days, it was the fastest way of communicating and it was the way we were instructed to work by the military.

A detailed note would have been a great way to go. We’re now leaving door-hangers as we did pre-Katrina.

16. Several days ago you told me you took down the press release that claimed that all rescue groups were activists responsible for breaking into homes? Any comment?

I asked someone on my staff to draft a release to advise the public that we weren’t the group responsible for breaking into people’s homes with crowbars. We were receiving complaints (one is below) and we didn’t even use crowbars! I never approved the release, but it was sent to our webmaster by mistake in an email. Once you told me about it, I had it removed. It should not have been posted. It was never released to the media.

Sample email of complaint about rogue rescuers--

Subject: Re: Fwd: Fw: Another "SPCA" report from another listserve

I believe that these are NOT "rogue" groups but official groups.

One, they left a signature blue foam across the glass @ 1500 Camp. They
also left a 50 lb bag of rat food (labeled dog food) there.

In another, I left a message on the door last Tuesday that the owner
would be back Wednesday. The SPCA/Humane Society had been feeding his
dogs at his request (he left ~3 weeks food & water when he left). They
broke into his home/mechanics shop and left it WIDE open (his tools are
his livelihood). Fortunately, he got home before a second set of
looters (the SPCA/Humane Society being the first set, they stole a new
"creeper" from him for further breakins).

I know of FIVE other cases either second or third hand ! All terrible.

In addition, your group is creating a MASSIVE public health nuisance by
leaving tons of rat food lying around (along with mosquito breeding
trays). Subtract cats, add food, wait = Rat population explosion.

I REJECT your claim, based upon my personal first hand observations,
that your group is blameless !

This a highly organized, coordinated assault upon the citizens and
property of New Orleans !

16. I have a friend Garo from New York who is now in town with animal control types of people. He attempted to contact your office for over 2 weeks to volunteer. Does LASPCA have any working phone numbers?

Our phone system is working, but rarely gets answered since we’re dealing with the animals. The best thing to do is to stop by 701 Thayer St between 10am – 5pm. We’ll also have the application online soon. If someone is looking for job to answer phones, we’re hiring!! Stop by.
We’re getting ready to switch from the 800 number to a local number.

17. Anything else you would like people to know about animals in New Orleans?

In brief, our biggest problems are:
Cultural obstacles to spay/neutering
A cultural acceptance of allowing animals to roam
Dogfighting
Heartworms galore
Neglect is rampant. We’re a poor city and many people don’t take care of themselves, much less animals.
Poor animal ethic statewide. We’re one of two states where cockfighting is legal. Our mayor mentioned cockfighting in his address to Congress last week when trying to share his vision of gambling in New Orleans.
Getting the judicial system to accept animal cruelty as a serious problem.

18. Will you allow a 3rd party to monitor this Phase 2 the animal operation?

Anyone can monitor anything. We have nothing to hide.

19. What is your plan exactly?

We’re interviewing for staff positions and hope to be fully staffed soon. Housing is the major problem. There aren’t places for people to live. We have 7 RV’s on our site for visiting sheltering professionals who are helping us.

Pre-Katrina, we operated a low-cost veterinary clinic with 5 full-time veterinarians. We offered free spay/neuter to indigent residents and cared for animals when people didn’t have the money. We had a heartworm fund and gave away heartworm preventative whenever we could. We fixed broken bones even though we’re not specialists. We did what we could when a person couldn’t afford their neighborhood veterinarian.

I gotta laugh at the dumb a** that spray painted a car. I must tell that most cars will never be driven again as they have so much mold in them that they are ruined. The city was destoryed, the army and national guard was doing much worse than painting a few cars...but I still gotta laugh at the dummy that did it as even Billy was smart enough to not paint someones car.

Brilliant idea to shut the rescue operation down and hand it over to someone with 6 employees and no shelter and no phone...simply brilliant. I have worked with L. Maloney and she is totally dedicated...don't blame her..blame the state vet the desk jockey with no common sense. Did they think the worst animal disaster in the history of the world was over in 30 days when they kicked HSUS out and said LASPCA can handle it? They have been wrong at about everything they say. The crisis continued all through the month of October with NO RESPONSE, except from rescue groups that they wanted shut down. Now today we have thousands of animals on the street. They pay no attention ever to what rescuers on the street tell them. Did it take a brain surgeon to tell you LASPCA was not ready to handle it? (this mainly for Littlefield who should go in my opinion. She care nothing about animals. If she did she would get the Gov to let outside vets practice cause I saw animals DIE in the last 2 days cause places like Alley Cat Allies HAVE NO VETS. f*** THIS STATE.

Email to me about why LASPCA has no phones yet they have been in charge for a month. Funny when my own cell phone bill was 12,000 minutes and $2000 ..I am not kidding...anyone know anyone at Cingular? Eric




Good Deal Eric.

I am baffled by the phone problem. Don't they have cell phones? I am wondering what would happen if they had an emergency there and no phone to report it.

Thanks to your efforts I am finally getting help with trapping in St. Bernard and feeding too. You helped me get the attention I needed here for the animals. I am forever grateful. I feel hopeful now that many of these dogs will have a chance now.

I will give an update on our progress on Thursday's conference call.

Thanks

Shirley,

It is a great story. Keep working. I feel so sorry for some of these people. It is a needle in a haystack.

We are Fedexing Posters of pets we picked up on certian blocks down to friends in New Orleans...We canvas an 8 block
area from where we picked the pet up and stuff like this works. IF YOU WANT TO FIND AN OWNER OF PET YOU HAVE IT IS POSSIBLE.

It is sad to see shelters and some rescuers doing nothing to reunite owners with animals. Why are these people in the animals business? To get PR from Katrina Pets it seems.

We are taking on the Washington Animal Rescue League because they have closed the door on a lady who possibly saw her Beagle on TV at the shelter. It has been 5 weeks and they have stalled at every turn. It amazes me how they people can't understand what the pet means to people who have lost everything. This same shelter may have picked animals up from evacuation points and claimed they are owner surrenders. That is what happened with this Beagle. Then they immediately used them for PR around DC area as did many other shelters across the county...then adopted them out in a heartbeat. Cruel in my opinion.

Eric, I know that by now, you are very famous and receive e-mails from all over the world. However, I have to share with you, my first success story from today, as I know you will understand how wonderful that first one truly feels!


I have been working with Stealth Volunteers reuniting owners with their pets. In the beginning of this particular case, I had a bad address and no working phone numbers in the area. In desperation, I searched the lost pets on Pet Finder. Found a listing for PF 2921. The owner had an address that was close to the one I had and was looking for a similar dog so I called them. Turns out that it was the owner of PF 47232! I helped her to find out where the animal was and she called the shelter and located it. Now there is a twist.....

I have good news and bad news. The owner was searching for a mother (Nikki) and a baby (Baby) black lab. Best Friends had Baby and had sent her to the Animal Hospital at Mount Lookout in Ohio but so far the mother Nikki has not turned up.

Baby has a broken leg so it will be about a month before they will be reunited. In the meantime, I will continue to help them continue to search for Nikki. In fact, as long as someone in Louisiana is looking for their lost pet, I intend to try to help them find it!

I just wanted to thank you personally for having such a caring heart and the courage to put your emotions into actions to help the people of NO and their pets. None of us will ever know all the people in whose lives we have made a difference, but we can take pride in that at least we did what we could, when we could!

Congratulations on a job well done, Eric. Next time I am in Baltimore I would love to buy you a drink!

My daughter went to school at Towson and would move back in a minute, if she could, it is a fantastic city!

Are Plaquemines Parish animals still dying do to a cover up? Local health dept. has some animals, but incinerator has been brought in to dispose of animal bodies. All of this is on parish government website. I contacted the health dept. a few weeks ago to see what they were going to do w/animals not claimed, but got no response. They are not letting "outsiders" in, and started demolishing houses with or without owner's permission last week. Any outside person trying to get in must have a permit from local sheriff. This includes rescuers. Area covered with oil/toxic sludge. No wildlife left. The following link is email for Parish Pres. Benny Rouselle and other officials.

27096.8.1. Arrest Pet Rescuers
by mc1121, 11/2/05 8:44 ET
Re: Please Don't Rescue by UptownLady, 11/2/05
The Police are not interested in arresting any pet rescuers, despite neighbors threats (to officers who arrived) to shoot these "rescuers". The police said "do what you have to do." I've chased several out of my midcity neighborhood with my neighbors. The "rescuers" have tried to run out my knee caps with their car. Took video of me and swung a cat food crusted spatula in my face. Freaks would be too kind. These folks are not working with a full deck. The City of New Orleans website announced weeks ago that "rescuers" have "permits" and that any without a permit would be arrested but my experience is those cadillac looting cops are worthless and exclaimed "but there are poodles loose in our city."

Six employees seems quite ridiculous; there were about a hundred people at the HSUS volunteer meetings I went to in October. They could get more than six people if they wanted to--there are people that would work for free for a while, I'm sure. No one at the HSUS meetings was getting paid.
Re: spray painting cars. I think this is what you get when hundreds of people with different ideas move in to help. Jane Garrison told us at one meeting that she was "hesitant" (I think) to tell people to use their best judgement in deciding how to react to situations, because she'd seen so many poor judgement calls lately. If the house was obviously flooded, icky, beyond repair, we spray painted and used a crowbar to get in however we could. If the house looked redeemable, we tried not to mess anything up. We didn't spray paint if the house wasn't badly flooded. You can always look for places to spray paint such as on plywood on the doors, places that won't ruin the siding. Sometimes people don't think.
What do they mean, most people have returned? A lot of those houses were not good enough to return to. One thing that's needed there is an animal control presence on the streets so people returning know what to do if they can't keep pets. We took one cat for someone who had returned from Houston to check on their house--they were just going to leave their cat outside with one bowl of food and go back to Houston. There were many other stories like this from other rescuers.

Let me see if I have this picture right.
1. There is now a rat problem in New Orleans because of the pet food that was left out for starving animals?
2. People who jeopardized their lives and livelihoods to rescue the pets of people they never met, from a disgusting, flooded out, mold ridden, sewer smelling, uninhabitable city are causing problems by spray painting undrivable cars.
3. Despite the fact that there are still 100's of feral cat colonies in NO there is a rodent problem.
4. The 100's of dogs, cats and birds on the streets are choosing not to eat dog/cat food that was left for them by rude, spray paint-happy do-gooder, rescuers, and opting to instead leave it for mice and rats to dine upon, therefor causing said rodent problem. And the dogs, cats, and birds are eating......where? Local restaurants? Pizza delivery?

Bull crap.

Here is an idea for New Orleans:
The NEXT time a hurricane comes and your levy is caught napping on the job: TAKE YOUR PETS WITH YOU WHEN YOU EVACUATE!!!
Because I went to NO to rescue, and one of the neighborhoods I was in the people left in their own cars, and they COULD have taken their pets with them, but they didn't. AND let me clue you onto something else residents of NO, some of ya'll showed your asses after Katrina, and a rodent problem is the LEAST of your problems. You need to straighten up your PEOPLE problem first, because myself and a lot of people I know won't be coming down for Marti Grass in our life times.

The rat thing is STUPID. The Rodent Police told State vet Littlefield to call of street feeding...and instead of fighting for animals she again just went along with it.... I have not seen a single rat in the city and neither has anyone I talked to. Personally I like Maloney but they have screwed her royaly on all kinds of things and then she takes the hit for it cause her agency is all we know. Littlefield should go. I mean resign.

For one of the last posters trying to find their dog (anonymous), could you offer up a bit of a description and gender?

Maybe the right person reading may be able to help...

Shirley, I've put in a request to join your group and will (try to) wait patiently for your acceptance...

“Another major problem was the lack of communication between the rescuer and dispatcher." Laura

First kudos to Laura Maloney,the President of the LASPCA, to actually responding.

There are dozens of issue I would like to address but for now I would like to address the issue of communications.

To start with before New Orleans I had ZERO animal rescue experience.
But I realized that communication would be the number one priority. Without it everything would fail. I had duplicating systems that if one portion failed another portion would cover me. I.e. walkie talkies that covered up 2-3 miles. Cell Phones (Yes they almost always worked as we did not have a local area code) and finally a satellite phone.

This allowed us to not only communicate directly with our command center, but often with the people whose pets we were their to rescue.
This simple concept gave us the ability to talk directly and indirectly immediately to the people whose pets we rescuing.
This is the reason we were able reunite over 85 percent of our pets rescued with their owners, most of the time within 36 hours.

With the people we could not get in touch with most of the time we simply used paper, markers and tape. We would mark the date, status, information if the pet was found. Information IF it was found where it was at.

In spite of repeated attempts in dialogues with the LASPCA it was beyond their concept that once they actually rescued an animal that they could post a number or an location where the pet would be taken at the person house. It appeared that it was also beyond their concept to actually call the person whose pet they rescued for immediate notification. If they simply had telephone numbers available ONLY for rescued pets then their life and those they were supposed to be helping would have been easier

The simple act of coordinating and communicating with other agencies also seemed to be too much
Within 48 hours I had many National Guard in our little area helping with looking for stranded pets.
Once I found that some in the military would be more than happy to help, I was able to go up the chain of command and suggest that as the teams of rescuers that were breaking into homes that they would mark homes that still had pets in them. There isn’t any reason this could not have been done city wide.

I am still baffled why the powers that be were so insular. From my vantage point I saw little use of the mayor office, media or other outlets in any meaningful way. With only a little effort my wife Jennifer was on Fox international News imploring people not to give up on their pets as the rescuers were still pulling out animals. We had other success with dealing with local affiliates.

That said this is why I am concerned that Groups like the LASPCA will have such an undo influence in how future disasters will be handled. They still seem to unable grasp the magnitude of this disaster and the basic common sense approach that was necessary to make theirs or any operation work.

The monumental failures such as not having stationary command and controls centers in the immediate disaster zone, not having an immediate temporary facility to house the animals among just a few of the major blunders that I saw.
Laura talks about having to follow the law, but under a crisis situation one does not need to have the "perfect facility"
There isn’t any reason why they could not have had another Camp Lucky in the immediate area of NO.

More importantly they needed to realize that they were severely understaffed and should have tried to co-opt people like me instead of trying to send us away.

Common sense did not rule the day anywhere...That was one thing that struck me and keeps doing so to this day...and they seem to want to bury the enormity of this situation even today...calling the operation over a month ago yet I know of at least another 1500 animals rescued in October and that with 1/10 of the volunteers...New Orleans has the worst animals crisis even today and the people in the field tell them this over and over and over...yet what do they do? They kick all out of state vets out so now animals die needlessly. Any common sense? We to took to putting our cell phone numbers on/ or in the house and we get calls daily and I sent 3 out of 5 animals being fostered on a farm in Baton TRouge home just this week. In all we have had dozens of call from people that came back, found the note and now have the pet back. Eric

Why do some animals "listed" on petfinder not have photos available now over 2 months since Katrina? Some are listed as rescued from water/swimming, and were obvoiusly picked up several weeks ago since from what I hear NO is now dry. These animal have been shipped somewhere since Lamar is closed, but no one had time to take a photo? Hard to believe.

I attached a picture of Teddy the Wild Child we trapped in the woods along Riverbend in St. Bernard. Also is "Linus" the beagle we trapped that was running with him. I named him Teddy to soften his first impression by people. He was almost unmanigable and it took two of us to pole him out of the trap and crate him. I noted on his intake that he had been living in the woods for 2 months and survival was his only concern and that he would bite out of fear if you appraoch him. Unfortunately the vet tech did not fully comprehend what I was telling her about his behavior and was bitten when overstimulating him. He was as feral as it gets. I am sure with time he will be manageable. This little beagle was one of a pair of two that was reported over a month and a half ago. I caught his brother in a pile of brush with the pole at that time and this guy eluded me for all that time. I bait fed him every other day, and spoke to him in beagle talk to get him used to my voice. I had a great concern for this little guy and was so delighted to get the traps so that we could bring him to safety. I called a local vet Dr. Green and he came to magazine and treated Teddy and Linus free of charge they both were anemic, HW positive, and had worms. Teddy's mouth was lacerated from knashing at the trap. Linus was dehydrated and decompensating from fear, drooling for two hours, pale, shaking, listless etc. He recovered with IV's and tons of TLC and was taken to Oregon by Karen one of the volunteers who helped me with the trapping mission. Lexie was my partner, and she helped tremendously. Lexie went home to NY yesterday. I got a new partner from a post I put up on nola.com. She called me from CA and hopped a flight that same night. Her name is Corolla. She has six years of disaster animal rescue and also was involved in a special desert trapping operation of feral dogs living in the desert. We stood at the edge of the woods in one of the areas of concern in St. Bernard well after dark and listened to the MULTITUDE of dog packs. It was unbelievable how many dogs we could hear. This is happening in all areas of St. Bernard. The dogs have taken to the woods for safety and food as there are no people there to feed and have been scarce if any feeding stations. One , two or a few people could not have begun to properly drop feed this entire parish. It was a losing battle.I am overjoyed now at the sight of 10 trapper/polers who came to this Parish with me to assess the problem and start the saturation trapping of the entire parish. I now feel there is hope for these forgotten animals thanks to your kindness and your influence in getting me this crew to help. We received 30 dog traps also. I felt like it was Christmas for the dogs here who were gradually starving from a wild existence of domesticated animals. I just wanted you to know what a difference your strict attention to the problem in this parish has made. Eric had a big hand in this too, helping by constantly putting out my cries of help to the right people.He is amazing in his unconditional love for animals as you are and is willing to stick his neck out and fight against all odds for their safe return as you are. These dogs owe their lives to the two of you. I will continue to document the progress here. I think this will be the first time in America where there has been such a large trapping effort of domestic dogs turned feral by a Hurricane of mass destruction along the entire gulf coast. Every day new people are calling me and telling me they are flying or driving in for this effort. The post on nola has had wonderful results. I am very proud to have you and Eric in my corner and will never be able to thank you enough for lightening my heart by getting the help in this Parish that I needed to try to save these animals. I wish all of America could see what wonderful work is being done now in this Parish for the ones who survived a flood of biblical proportions and are now being sought out by some of the finest trappers, experts as a labor of love by volunteering their skills to re-domesticate them. We even had a vetrinarian from Idaho join the trapping effort today. I wish I had the man's name and number who gave us all the training seminar at Winn Dixie last week.I was so infatuated by his wisdom and dog charisma I neglected to get his contact information. His expert information has given us all the skills and knowledge that he used when he introduced the wolves to yellowstone park. His organizations website is www.wildlifeglobalresources.org He has an amazing "finesse" with the animals that truly reflected on us which is the blending of the human and animal minds. We all know that the success in trust is the respect we project to the animals and he stresses this to all rescuers. All things are connected is the key focus.With the animals we can gain their confidence with the utmost of calm. They are able to sense our anxieties , energies, and peacefulness. He trains with oriental martial arts to gain the necessary skills it takes to communicate with the animals through body language and human behaviours that tell the dogs a story about us.In the case of what we are dealing with here, his teachings were essential to our success. I would like to send him pictures and documentation of the wonderful progress we have made in just a few days of this operation. I am thinking the trapping effort should have a special operation name due to the extreme hard work patience and undying dedication involved. This would give integrity and poise to a new and unusual phase of disaster rescue. It would also give attention to the Forest dogs of Katrina which would bring recognition to your plan for "NO DOG LEFT BEHIND" and interest in volunteering for such a project. I do not in any way mean to crown this effort as better than any of the other rescue efforts from all people who toiled to bring dogs to safety after the worst ever recorded Hurricane devastation in the Gulf. Everyone who rescued anywhere here deserves a medal of honor. I am just thinking that at this time with all of the organizations numbers of volunteers dwindling we could give special attention to the task at hand which will be a long lasting test of the utmost patience of new volunteers. It could take months to bring in the numbers of dogs we have here and finding them is not as easy as breaking into a house to get them out. It may take days to bring one of these "hardened" animals to safety. It will be expensive and extremely time consuming, but worth every second of it if we can reel them in and show the disaster planners how this can be successfully done during future disasters. Documentation of techniques and new achieved skills will be essential. I plan to keep a log of all of the trappers little secrets to further education in this much unused, before now in America, form of animal rescue in any major disaster here..

Just a suggestion for a name for the trapping operation here should you choose to adopt one is." Operation Katrina - No Dog Left Behind" A trapping expedition that if properly managed and documented may be inscribed in disaster history literature for future generations to learn about and benefit from in disasters from years to come. I will also suggest to all trappers that they take a few minutes each night to keep a journal and keep cameras on hand at all times. That way when this operation is completed we will have the total picture for all to see. Telling the story properly and getting it first hand from those on the ground will catch the atttention of all interested in animal welfare. Let me know your thoughts.

I apologize for my lengthiness in this e-mail, however, I am so hopeful and grateful to the volunteers and organizers that I would like to make sure credit is given to this type of effort so that in the future things will be clearer and started earlier in a disaster plan so that no animals will suffer the double tragedy of losing their families and then being forced to kill to survive in a harsh environment because of a Hurricane or slowly starve to death..

I am also lobbying on the side and working with the families of the dogs who were unnecessarily shot in the schools to ensure evacuation plans for animals too. We all know many people DID die that stayed behind because they could not take their animals. This Must Never Happen Again and if we keep it in the public eye, and follow it through to the end it may never happen again.

One more thing, Corolla is working with New Leash on Life that has some contact with Hollywood personalities to obtain us night vision goggles. This would be invaluable to us in that we could determine locations of dogs where the flashlight cannot see. We could see the dogs before they see us and from a very safe distance, and could place and set our traps accordingly. We would definately have the upper hand and be far more successful. A fireman in St. Bernard has agreed to give Beth, Corolla, I and any other willing trappers and rescuers a onsite demonstration of the benefits of this technology in locating warm blooded mammals.
Even if we had one pair per team, we could use one person as a spotter. Scores more could be saved that might have been left behind due to their quietness and elusiveness. We might just get them all and that is the common goal here. I will update you on Corolla's ability to obtain these as soon as I know something. If they are donated materials they can be recycled to other rescue efforts for years to come. To me it would be a worthwhile investment especially for animal interest groups involved in disaster response. Corolla used them in the desert trapping efforts and contributes her success to their use.

Here is a description of the pictures I attached of this rescue:

1. "Teddy" the Wild Child in the trap. 2. "Teddy" not looking as wild in his carrier after we transferred him before transport. 3." Linus," the beagle, sick and in desperate need of TLC that he will now get with Karen. Karen named him Linus to give him a soft loving name.. 4. Me in front of " The Doghouse" in St. Bernard(#013) Couldn't resist..LOL.. 5. Lexie and Karen in front of "The Doghouse" in St. Bernard (#014) 5. Lexie and Karen with the gracious emergency bulldozer crew that gladly helped us carry "Teddy" from the woods that day in his carrier. You can share the pics with anyone you think would enjoy them or for any reason you think would boost the trapping effort in St. Bernard.

I look forward to hearing from you on these issues. I know you are super busy and I am patient so reply at your earliest convenience.

Thank You

Marilyn McGee

Hi,
I am bumping this posting from below. The man was forced to leave behind his dog, even though he begged. If you can help, please email the email address given in this post - I dont think the person will see anything put on Nola.com.

27301. Missing Pit/Mastiff-Elysian Fields/Gentilly area by carlaj357, 11/3/05 9:10 ET I know that we've all heard lots of amazing stories. But now-I have heard the most amazing story so far, this man is overcome with grief to find his beloved dog, Buddy, who he was forced to leave behind after being in a boat for 5 days with his 2 dogs and finally being rescued by the National Guard via helicopter.

He was forced by the National Guard to leave his dogs behind tied to a post. He said he cried and begged them to let him bring his dogs, but they wouldn't-they would have left him there. He left behind 2 dogs, and 3 cats-and so far 2 cats and one dog were there at the house when he got back. Buddy is still missing & this dog went to work with him every day, slept beside him in his bed, etc. He was really emotional, this dog is his best friend. I was crying just listening to him. I'm trying to get a picture from him but he does not know how to use computers. Please read and see if this sounds familiar:

The beagle that was on St. Bernard Hwy near the check point was hit by a car. Rescuers brought him to a vet, but he died.

On the original EDNAH photos, IMG 5455 there are a few dogs that kinda fit that description. Unfortunatly if the dog was a great looking dog and really friendly, he might have gone home with someone. Thank you for all the listings for Katrina pets.

I wonder if the LASPCA is going to try to get some new laws passed after this. Making Spaying or Neutering mandatory unless you're a registered breeder. Hiring more people to do more home checks (to look for neglect). And trying to pass stricter animal rights laws.

They have their work cut out for them. Maybe this is the kick in the butt they needed to clean up NO.

If I sent this previously, please forgive me. Just got a new laptop and it is touchy!

I am writing to see if any of you might know who or what group rescued pets that had to be left on St. Bernard Highway two to three days after Katrina.

I have several people looking for pets. The owners were evacuated and forced to leave them there on the highway to board buses or dump trucks headed for a ferry.

The owners are very distraught. One elderly couple had to leave their five basset hounds after getting them through the hurricane and surviving in their attic for days. I have very specific information including the name of a fireman that the elderly gentleman grew up with. The fireman was helping the owners to evacuate.

I have the exact places where the animals were left, no police officers identification however as most had just "police" t-shirts on with badges. This particular evacuation took place at St. Bernard Highway and Archbishop Hannon Blvd in Violet near an auto body shop. The owners were told that rescuers would be by to take care of their pets. In all, that morning about 8-12 dogs were left when they boarded the bus. There was a newly built house nearby and they don't think that the people in that home had evacuated as it was dry there. I asked if they could get someone to knock on the door and ask if they knew or had seen the animals being rescued, anything at all.

The owners have been back to the location and the pets were not there. They have also sent someone by their homes.

Another gentleman that had a rotti, had tied him to a pole (different location on STB Highway). The lead and the collar were still there. That concerns me, who would take a collar off with identification and leave it?

Another owner left her pet on the highway in Violet near the cruise ship with a Judges wife. Trying to track her down to see what happened to that pet?

I hope that I am not being overly suspicious, but there seems to be a pattern here. Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, the pets have not turned up in the system yet. So any advice you could give me would be appreciated.
Or if you know of anyone that evacuated in that area during that time frame could you please point me in their
direction. Thanks.

RE: pets left behind by owners boarded on busses from highway.

The following was widely posted by Associated Press near the beginning of September: -- begin quote from Associated Press ---Louisiana State Treasurer John Kennedy, who was helping with relief efforts Saturday, said some evacuees refused to leave without their pets. "One woman told me 'I've lost my house, my job, my car and I am not turning my dog loose to starve,'" Kennedy said. Kennedy said he persuaded refugees to get on the bus by telling them he would have the animals taken to an exhibition center. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals picked up two cats and 15 dogs, including one Kennedy found tied up beneath the overpass next to an unopened can of dog food with a sign that read "Please take care of my dog, his name is Chucky."--- end quote from Associated Press ---

This does not say which overpass, but perhaps it may help. Perhaps contact the Louisiana State Treasurer John Kennedy, to see what he remembers? Sounds like the pets picked up that day went to "an exhibition center". Would that have been Lamar-Dixon? You've probably already tried all those leads, but I remembered the Associated Press article and decided to post it here -- in hopes that it will help in your search.

Just checked out the State of Louisiana Dept of Treasury website. Found out that State Treasurer Kennedy has his own blog. Check out the September entries. He mentions rescuing.

More than two months after Hurricane Katrina blew in, animals are still being found alive in New Orleans, pulled out of attics and from beneath flooring or off of the streets, where they’ve been surviving on sheer will and the kindness of strangers who leave food for them.

Some are little more than skin wrapped around bones. Starving, dehydrated and depressed, they still greet people trustingly, perhaps somehow recognizing that they represent salvation from their utterly bewildering circumstances.

Story continues below ↓
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the past month, volunteers with Animal Rescue New Orleans, run by Jane Garrison of Charleston, S.C., have rescued more than 400 animals, delivering them to the Best Friends animal shelter on the grounds of Saint Francis Animal Sanctuary in Tylertown, Miss. Garrison’s crew sets out food and water around the city to keep animals alive until they can be coaxed into custody or humanely trapped. The team also responds to phone calls reporting animals that are trapped.

Silver was one of those pets. Garrison says they received a call from a construction worker whose company had been contracted to gut a house.

'Like a skeleton with skin'
“When they went in there, they found this sweet little cat that couldn’t even move,” she says. “She was lying in her own urine, skin and bones, just like a skeleton with skin. She had a collar around her neck with the name Silver and a phone number. We took her to the animal hospital, and I tried to call that number. I couldn’t get through, so I tracked down the construction company’s main office and found out who owned that house. He was completely speechless on the phone; he couldn’t believe she was alive.”

At last report, Silver was getting intravenous antibiotics and fluids, but wasn’t yet eating.

The same week, a woman called to report that every time she went back to her apartment building, there was still a dog there that had been left behind. She would give the dog what food and water she could find, but didn’t know what to do with him otherwise until she saw one of Garrison’s flyers.

“We went there, and we found this little Chihuahua hiding under the blankets in this apartment,” Garrison says. “He was very frightened, very depressed, extremely thin, of course, filled with fleas, and very dehydrated and hungry. While we were there, we started hearing meowing. We pulled down the stairs to the attic, went up there, and found a tabby cat still alive.”

At last count, the Best Friends shelter held 320 dogs and 154 cats, all waiting to be placed in foster homes across the country. They’re photographed and information about them and where they go is carefully recorded so they can be easily tracked if and when their owners come in search of them.

Up for adoption
No one knows yet how many people and animals have been reunited. At Best Friends, there have been only 112 such reunions so far. It’s likely that a number of pets will be adopted into new homes, says Michael Mountain, president of Best Friends Animal Society.

“I think what’s going to happen is there are a lot of people who really would like to reunite, but they find themselves in a different part of the country now, they don’t have a job, they’re living with family," he says, "and … for many people life will move on and they’ll be grateful for the fact that somebody else has got Fluffy or Fido.”

Special Report: Two towns rebuild after Katrina



Most shelters that have taken in Katrina pets are placing them in foster homes until Dec. 31, to give owners as much time as possible to find and claim them. After that, they’ll be made available for adoption.

For some, the single most important thing is getting back together with their dog or cat. One woman was so distraught by the loss of her cat that she had to be hospitalized in intensive care. “They found the kitty, and it’s given her new life,” Mountain says.

Dog and cat feeding stations caused and proliferated New Orlean's 500 year rodent and mosquito problems?

Now, if there's ever an apt time to use the term "delirious" it is with reference to any one who would suggest this.

New Orleans is under sea level. It is humid year round. It grows fungus algae and nastiness regularly; it is a laboratory setting for decomposition. It is one big compost pile. It has been since BEFORE the floods. It always has been; always will be.

If its officials think that not having dog/cat feeding and water stations will have any impact whatsoever on its rodent/mosquito population, its officials are dumber than I ever could have imagined.

Having attended college there many many years ago, and having tended bar down there to pay my way, i can attest that the rodent, roach, insect problem is just apart of New Orleans as jazz once was.

Kathryn.

Many people try to achieve goals. Most fail. Some strive, work hard and plan for all the details yet they achieve little or nothing at all. Others strive, work hard, plan and achieve huge success. Yet there are a few individuals who do little else than take small steps and seem to achieve a great deal with what seems like effortlessness. What is the difference between these people and which one would you like to be?
Most members of the human race fall into two categories - those who live in the past and those who live in the future. Most live in the past. Many of these are the people who achieve very little in their lives and are so fearful of the future that they dare not strike out to get anything. They are the under-achievers who hang onto bad episodes in their lives and either relive them time and again or look at new situations as similar potentialities. They say things like "all men are deceivers" or "all women are interested in is money" or "I can't do it. I tried before and it didn't work so why bother!". Due to bad experiences in the past they believe that all future events will turn out the same way if they dare to go after what they want.
The other type of person lives in the future. This type tends to create more of the things they want in life. They have a vision of where they want to go and exactly how they are going to get there. They work diligently at making concrete plans and they pursue those plans with a persistent ferocious appetite for success. These people are the high achievers - The Richard Branson and Bill Gates of the world. These people have much to teach us about setting and achieving goals.
However, there is a third type of person who almost goes unnoticed. They are the person who takes life in its stride and yet achieve most of what they want. I am sure you know of such a person in your life that just seems to saunter through life and yet they always come out on top. Or a person who you hear of that has decided to open a shop. You meet them a few months later and they have three shops all doing well! So what makes these people so successful and if they aren't living in the past and aren't living in the future where are they living?
I suppose you guessed it! Whether they are consciously aware of it or not they are living in the present. It is in the 'living' present that we have our greatest power. Everything happens in the present. You live your entire life there - even if your mind does not!
By becoming more aware of the present and by 'accepting' it as it is we are much more in control of our emotions and focus. When we live in the past we are fearful of making bad choices and/or getting hurt. We do not wish to recreate the past again! When we live in the future we can also be fearful of what might happen. But even if your future vision is full of power and worthy of working towards many people can, and often do, get stuck there. By constantly reaching for bigger and better goals they fail to enjoy what they have in the moment.
If you wish to start living a life that is almost effortless begin first by living in the present. Accept your situation the way it is and then you can enjoy what you have. Your focus changes from a memory of what was or a vision of what might be to a realization of what is. You become much more empowered to then see the beauty of life and also look at where you wish to make changes. But to make changes you must first accept the situation as it is. Trying to escape from your present only increases your focus on your problems by creating resistance to what is. Accept your life as it is now. Make no judgement, just accept it and then you will be free of doubt, worry, pain and fear. For you only experience these things when you live outside the 'moment'. lucid dreaming
