Rescuing Katrina’s Four-Legged Victims

You know that we love pets around here — we actually dedicated Episode 5 of Ready Radio entirely to pet preparedness.

The thought of any pets being abandoned by their owners in a disaster is a sad one, but thanks to some incredible volunteers many of them can be reunited after the fact.

Check out this interview on NPR’s Fresh Air. Terry Gross talks with Margaret McLaughlin, who helped rescue animals after Hurricane Katrina. Don’t miss the part about Rudy and his bedroom with pig sheets and pig paintings!
