~ Several dogs and cats held over from last week need rescue ASAP. Labrador Retriever puppies and adults
are the most loyal dogs, with easy-care coats and bright, tail-wagging personalities. The Labs are athletic, compatible with kids and other animals, and responsive to training. Please consider a brown, yellow or black Lab pup or adult. Someone dumped a cutie-pie Jack Russell Terrier
who recently had puppies. A Border Collie Mix
is eager to please, with love for whomever enters her kennel. Several small Terrier Mixes
want to go home with you!
On the feline side, a Tortie, Russian Blue, and several black kittens
have been held over at least once, so their days are numbered! A Gray Tabby "Kissing Kitty"
is so affectionate she literally licks volunteers' hands. A Siamese Tabby Cross
with lovely blue eyes wants to be close to people. Many cats are so love-starved they throw themselves against cage edges to make contact with anyone who passes them.
Please give any of these wonderful animals a chance to live. They have till Thurs, October 5, at 5pm with PTS Friday morning unless held over.
Calif Fires: Woman Forbidden To Get Pets
Original Alert ~ California Fire Officials Won't Let Woman Retrieve Animals
Update 9/28/06, Jane Garrison
~ Animals stuck in a home surrounded by wildires in Lockwood Valley, Los Angeles area, are now safe! Yesterday we pressured fire officials into getting the woman's three dogs out and today she got her four cats. Thank you to everyone who helped. I am certain there are more people and animals who need help so I will update you.
Mauled Cats In Orleans, City Park Area

, Stewardship For Strays ~ More mauled cats in the Carrollton, Orleans, City Park area where Sections 11, 12 and 27 meet. I believe cat maulings occurred here pre-Katrina. Unaltered dogs, who were either dumped or found their way to City Park, established their den and had puppies. Mauled cats have also been found in Lakeview, not too far from here. It may be the same pack (or several) in City Park since the storm. Please forward to others in the area.

~ We have cat killers in the neighborhood. Bryan Mullen's two cats were killed near his house on Moss Street and the Bayou recently. He had seen three stray dogs on Harding who looked [aggressive]. More victims: Marilyn's cat at Adrian's Florist. Sharon, nextdoor, mentioned someone told her another two cats were badly mangled and killed in Marlyn's area around Orleans, Carrollton and Dumaine last week. I hate that it may be dogs. I feel sorry for them too.

Sorry to post again but we miss our boy, an all gray male cat, 12 pounds, red collar/tag. He was last seen in front of 619 N Pierce Street (next to Home Depot at Toulouse and Pierce). I've heard about wild dogs in area but there haven't been any reports to animal control. We offer a large reward for his return and compensation for any helpful information.

10/3/06 Telemundo TV16 & NY Daily News ~ Saved: 56 Chihuahuas, 18 pups, 5 dogs! LA parishes have few local adoptions. Out-state export reduces gassing. We can transport pre-vetted animals for foster and adoption.
NY Daily News
, A Dogged Pursuit Latin Style, By Richard Weir ~ Marbles, a shivering, speckled wisp of a dog, is one of few Chihuahuas still homeless after a nearly 2,000-mile odyssey from Louisiana to Long Island.
The pint-sized pup was among 56 Chihuahuas rescued from a Marrero, LA puppy mill and transported to North Shore Animal League for adoption. Capitalizing on the breed's popularity in New York's Latin American community, North Shore staff appeared with pups on the Spanish TV station Telemundo. "The segment caused a flurry of phone calls," said Joanne Yohannan, North Shore's vice president of operations and emergency rescue. "There were 20 potential adopters waiting at the doors when we opened."
Since then, the Port Washington-based animal shelter has placed 41 Chihuahuas. But 10, including Marbles, remain unadopted. Marbles and five more Chihuahuas suffered health problems due to filthy, overcrowded conditions at the Marrero home of Patsy Chism, 61. When Jefferson Parish officials raided Chism's home they found a feces-strewn, disease-infested backyard kennel and some 80 dogs. The dogs, 1 to 8-years old, had little water or food. Chism faces felony animal cruelty charges, plus unrelated obstruction of justice tied to her boyfriend's murder.

~ Go Luna! Her pelvic fractures are healing well on their own, so no surgery. Infections are in check and she's kept some food down. With a sling held on her hindquarters, Luna now bears some weight on her back legs. Support and good energy from so many people, with expert 24-hour care at ASEC, plus Luna's robust NOLA constitution, have pulled her through.
Doctors now advise she go home under Pia's care with 6-8 weeks of crate rest. Luna's feeding tube will stay until her esophagus heals. Pia must feed her every four hours and support Luna by sling so she can begin to walk. Pia is teeny, so no easy task. While in Los Angeles, we reinforced Pia's gate (through which Luna had escaped and was struck by a car) with metal plating and two padlocked latches. No one will open this gate again, unless Pia opens it herself.
Thanks to all who sent support when Luna nearly died in a car hit. She's just one dog, but you know the starfish story. The best, David
