THANK YOU!

During the 2005 storm season, tens of thousands of people helped our city in its darkest hour — when failed levees and floods stranded thousands of residents and over 50,000 companion animals. A staggering number of animals perished. The loss of human and animal life was incalculable…but we are forever indebted to small and large humane organizations, caring individuals, first responders, municipal animal control agencies, and foundations that came to our aid.

YOU’RE INVITED TO COMMEMORATE THE 3RD ANNIVERSARY OF HURRICANE KATRINA:

To show our gratitude, I hope you’ll accept my personal invitation to return to the City of New Orleans to commemorate the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. We’ve planned a day-long memorial service… Please help us write one of the last chapters of this difficult period in our nation’s history.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 2008 — 10:00 A.M.

Join us to unveil the nation’s first memorial statue honoring animals lost during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In the chambers of the New Orleans City Council, Councilwoman Stacy Head will accept the statue on behalf of the city. We’ve commissioned a respected artist, Mr. Richard Chashoudian… At the ceremony, an invocation will be read along with a special reading by Ed Kostro, poet and author. Authors Allen and Linda Anderson will read from their award-winning book, Rescued: Saving Animals From Disaster. Honorary awards will go to Garo Alexanian and Amanda and Marty St. John of MuttShack for their work during the 2005 storm season and beyond.
