A friend called from the Atlanta airport today to say he read the following in the current issue of Newsweek:
Special Series: A Flood of Compassion After a Tragic Storm
NOAH’S WISH Before he called his insurance company, Andy Grant, a resident of Metairie, La., who was affected by the hurricane, called Noah’s Wish. The nonprofit—which is devoted exclusively to saving animals during disasters—not only rescued his three cats, but it’s placed them in a foster home until he can return. The group, started by animal lover Terri Crisp in 2002 (she has 26 cats and six dogs herself), has deployed hundreds of trained volunteers to search for and shelter Louisiana pets.
How to help: The group could use funds—and volunteers. For more information, visit noahswish.org.
