Pet Rescue

A person’s pet, whether it is a dog, a cat, a bird, a ferret, a gerbil, or anything else, can be a beloved member of the family. But the decisions families are sometimes forced to make are not easy ones. Hurricane Katrina forced many families along the Gulf Coast to make choices they never wanted to make. Katrina was not the first or last time for such decisions. Forest fires, other hurricanes, tornadoes, and even the nuclear plant leak associated with a tsunami in Japan have created similar dilemmas for families. Fortunately, laws have changed since Katrina and families now have more options when they face these questions.
