|God bless you both for what you're doing. I'm sure even seeing the pictures of the devastation on TV can't compare to actually being there and experiencing it first-hand.
Willowsprite has been worried sick about Robin and her family, too. I pray that God keeps them all safe until they can be rescued/found.
All my prayers are with you in this courageous endeavor.
|Thanks for helping out! We wish you the best. Stay safe!|
|We'll be thinking of you...|
|Bless you for all your efforts.|
|I am speechless, and so grateful for your offer to help..... thank you... please keep us updated.|
|All my prayers are with all affected by this tradgedy! Please keep us posted and if there is anything I can do, phone calls, faxes...anything from here, please let me know!

|What an unbelievably kind and generous offer! God Bless you!!
You are all in my prayers!
|Animals that have been rescued from Katrina have been taken to Alexandria, Monroe, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Lafayette, Houston and of course Baton Rouge. We have contacted the animal rescue here at Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Houston. If you have the capability try to reach the other rescue shelters. If you find a "Sheepie" call me (my cell # 225-572-9767). We will rescue any and all of them. We are willing to drive to save a "Sheepie" and/or their parents.
We have posted on every bulletin board at the shelters here locally and on the internet trying to find Ken and Robin George and their sheepies. As soon as they lift the ban and allow the rescuers to go in and look for animals, we have their address and it is one of the first 25 addresses that they will go to.
All of the animal shelters are in need of Animal crates, leashes, dog food, horse food, cat food, etc.... Most importantly they will need money.
God Bless You All!
Joe & Wynette Thorn aka Baton Rouge Sheepies

|Dear Members and Friends,|
Thank you so much for all the offers of help and support. Best Friends role in the hurricane relief effort is now becoming considerably more focused, and we’ll be updating you every day or two. Here’s today’s update:
We are now working on site with the St Francis Animal Sanctuary in Tylertown – about 100 miles north of New Orleans. We consider them a sister sanctuary. They have facilities for about 400 dogs and cats. And they are being inundated! 80 more from the Humane Society of Louisiana. And 100 more from Jefferson Parish (New Orleans) Animal Control.
They have food for less than 24 hours. And they have a well, but no power to pump water. But they do have the basic facilities to operate as a sanctuary for adoptable animals from New Orleans.
So we are working with them to build up their facilities and run a joint project as base camp for adoptable animals being evacuated from New Orleans.
Our Director of Ops, Paul Berry, is now in metro New Orleans, working with Bert Smith, Director of Animal Control for Jefferson Parish. Bert is charged with rounding up stray animals. And he in turn will be taking as many as we possibly can to the St Francis sanctuary for shelter, and then to be placed in foster or adoptive homes.
A team of four from here at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary set off in a convoy for Louisiana this morning (Thursday). They are carrying food, generators, fencing, and many other supplies.
Another team from Best Friends Atlanta arrived in Louisiana this afternoon to start ferrying animals from animal control to the St Francis sanctuary.
We are now in a position to accept any and all offers of help. And thank you so much for them.
We need volunteers and supplies to assist in the rescue and placement of all of the animal refugees.
