Pet shelter AVAIL for evacuees in |Lafayette, La.
Date: Wed, 31 Aug 2005 20:52:23 +0000

I don't have time to spend on the internet finding and learning how to
post
right now. Please just let all members know that we have opened a
pet
shelter at Blackham Coliseum in Lafayette, right next to the
Cajundome.
Evacuees may bring their pets their for housing.

We have PLENTY of food, water, crates, cages, bedding and newspaper,
BUT the
owners are responsible for feeding, watering, walking and medicating
their
own pets. Interested parties may call Lafayette Parish Animal Control
at
337-291-5644 for more information.

Also many area vets are accepting animals right now, until they fill
up.

Get the Yellow Pages out! Please help me to get this word out. I've
been
working non-stop!

THANKS!

Nancy Marcantel

Dear fellow animal lovers:

Project HALO is in the process of coordinating a trip to the
flood-ravaged
areas of MS, AL and LA to help rescue the displaced and injured
animals. We
did this when Floyd hit our coast and we're being
called upon again. I just spoke with the NC Director of EARS
(Emergency
Animal Rescue Services) and she expects us to be deployed as early as
Monday (9/5). I expected to be able to leave earlier but right now
we
understand they're focusing on human rescue and as we all know the
animals' needs will be the last to be addressed. Following is a list
of
items I've been told are needed:

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation will have two drop sites
available:

First Ward Recreation
640 East 7th Street
Parking lot is located on 6th Street

Marion Diehl Center
2219 Tyvola Rd (between Park Road and South Blvd)
Behind the Senior Center

ITEMS NEEDED:
Advantage/Frontline/Heartgard
Plastic pet carriers
Leashes/collars
Food/water bowls
Zip ties
Litter/Litter boxes/Scoops
Duct Tape
Wet Ones/Handiwipes
Paper Towels
Plastic Trash Bags
Tarps
Plastic or Rubber Gloves
Sharpie Pens
Bug Spray for the volunteers
Polaroid Film
Polaroid Cameras
Any type of wound-dressing material (gauze, tape, wound wash, etc)

If any of you have a good relationship with your vet, see if they
will
donate some medical supplies. We need everything to set up a triage
area for
the injured.

As always, Project HALO will gladly supply a donation receipt for
any and
all donations. If you can't get supplies to us then you're welcome
to make a monetary donation via Paypal on our homepage of the
website at
www.projecthalo.petfinder.com

We can make tax-free purchases at Petsmart. Every penny we save
counts! We
want the Bow Wow Bus loaded with supplies for these innocent victims.
So many are left behind and forgotten when a disaster like this
hits. It's
our responsibility as an animal loving community to help. Project
HALO will supply the transportation and gas along with volunteers,
we just
need your help with the supplies. Please forward this to anyone you
think may be able to assist us. You may contact me directly at
704/395-2997 or cell-704/562-8939 to coordinate dropping off. My
address is
2500 Taimi Drive, Charlotte, NC

28214

Sincerely,
Rhonda Thomas
Project HALO
