Having been on-the-ground with animal rescue post-Katrina we have first-hand experience in the aftermath of not only a disaster, but of the decisions made. We share our fellow rescue organization's (GRRR) frustration of people who are part of the problem instead of being part of the solution. Animals will always be in peril until humans start making smarter choices.
