Story: From Katrina Ruins
A Category 5 hurricane cast people and animals adrift in a sea of loss. Almost one year later, I am still involved in the disaster relief that forever changed my perception of people and animals. For thousands of displaced animals, rescue often relied upon a volunteer network in the right place at the right time. This is what saved Spike, an 11-year-old Yorkie left behind in evacuee Brenda Johnson's flooded New Orleans East apartment. Spike became the face of all animals, alone… go to story

Story: Acts Of Cruelty
It was a day like any other, except for a flash of hot pain. An arrow shredded the cat's gallbladder, spleen, lungs, intestines. Since Hurricane Katrina stole his home, the black and white cat had burrowed invisibly under debris near a St. Bernard Parish school. He'd blended with the dark, just another shadow among thousands of displaced pets and strays in the New Orleans area. No one knows how long the cat lived with a hole through his body… go to story
