the dogs wanted to be Drew Breeze!

Amazing Animal Rescue Project !
The Katrina Promise
When Katrina hit, an incredible group of dedicated volunteers came
to East New Orleans. Facing devastation and hardship they
rescued over 3,000 pets. MuttShack operated a MASH unit, pet
shelter and an aggressive dog clinic run by Jim Crosby, the leader
in canine aggression.
MuttShack stayed and lobbied in support of Senator Fontenot's Pets
Act, winning the right for people to evacuate with their pets.
But the crisis is not over
The Act does not provide for all the supplies, equipment and
training that is necessary pre-storm.
Even though people will be evacuated with their pets, supplies and
trained volunteers are still desperately needed. Watch the
video and see how you can play a part.
