Hurricane Katrina Dog Rescue

SUMMARY: Stories of heartbreak, determination, delight, and the power of people who care.
For the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Agile Pooch (Holly N) has reposted the blogs that were posted originally day by day as Bay Teamers and friends of Bay Team donated money, materials, and even more amazing, time and energy to drop everything--their lives, their incomes--to go to Louisiana and try to find and rescue the pets that authorities had so cruelly forced people to leave behind or that people otherwise were unable to take along, perhaps expecting to be back soon.

It was sometimes hard to read the posts, but the successes also were many.

If you have time and inclination, these stories are amazing. I hope that she reposts the photos, too (at the moment the photo links seem to be out of date).

An amazing story from a sometimes surreal time:
