Please Give to the Humane Society

I donated to the Humane Society yesterday to support rescue efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Here was the e-mail I received from them today.

Dear Benny,

First off, I want to thank you for your early response and generous donation to help our disaster relief efforts as we respond to Hurricane Katrina. Your donation will directly impact our ability to provide disaster relief to animals and their caregivers in the next few days and during future disasters affecting animals.

As you read this, our highly-trained Disaster Animal Response Teams are heading to Mississippi to begin a multi-state animal rescue and recovery effort. Our 38-foot Disaster Response Unit and other rescue vehicles affiliated with our teams are fully stocked and on their way.

Even at this early stage, Katrina promises to be one of the most devastating hurricanes on record. Please keep the human and animal victims in your thoughts and thank you again for your emergency contribution.


Remember that animals and pets are very helpless, very much like children. They are competing with humans for food, shelter, water, and basic medicines. Please donate if you can.
