Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO) Still Needs Help: Katrina and BP Oil Disaster Continue to Stretch their Resources

If you can, please consider giving to ARNO. As you know the New Orleans area has suffered immensely due first to Katrina and now to the BP oil disaster and people having to give up dogs, cats, etc. due to the economic catastrophe that has occurred thanks to BP.

As stated at their site:

“Vet expenses have skyrocketed with the influx of animals coming in due to the oil spill. Added vet expenses of $2,000 just this past week allowed ARNO to get nine death row dogs out of a municipal shelter in Laplace, Louisiana, and three ARNO dogs. All were selected by the LA/SPCA to go to St. Hubert's in Madison, NJ and their placement partners in the northeast. The transport was arranged and paid for by HSUS with help from a grant from PetFinder.com and included 107 healthy dogs from shelters deluged with surrenders from the effects of the spill.”

So please visit http://www.animalrescueneworleans.org/ to see how you can help financially or physically.
