Title: Driving into New Orleans Day One

Driving into New OrleansDay One Rush Hour 730
New Orleans, a once thriving city, is now a ghost
The scenery is surreal nothing is as it should
Boats and cars are strewn about on the streets of
New Orleans. Cars, left on the street during
evacuation, were replaced by boats when the
water receded.
Camp CompassionMy First Camp in NO
Dogs were housed in the blue pods and under
tents in the center of the compound. Cats,
puppies and exotics were in the main building on
the left of the picture. We mostly slept in our
Camp Compassion Food Store
We really did start out to be neat and tidy, but
too many animals, too few people, turned it into
an organizational nightmare!
Camp Compassion
True organized chaos!
Cat rescue
Jezelle, left, and Joanne Fullwood, a New Orleans
police officer, pull a cat out from behind a
dresser in the upstairs bedroom in a house in New
Orleans that was flooded after Hurricane Katrina.
The owners fled by boat as the lower floor of the
house filled with five feet of water, but the
people were forced to leave six cats in the
bedroom. Nearly three weeks later, the
floodwaters receded and pet rescuers entered the
home and found five of the six cats healthy, but
one remained missing, for which the rescuers left
food and water
The puppy rescue
I got to crawl into this hole to get a chow pup
out. Dagget is here with me, suffering from
encephalitis and is blind from it at the moment

Animals were then shipped to other shelters
outside of New Orleans for housing and/or further
Load out to Shelter

Another save!
This little guy came into the MASH unit severely
dehydrated and clinging to life. We got the IVs
started and he was ready for transport to the LSU
Vet Hospital within 12 hours
Dog Housing
Dogs were housed in the orange tent and the blue
tent behind it, while awaiting transport to
shelters. SAR staging is on the left side
And Noah was told to bring two of every creature
Yes, we even rescued chickens!
Lara Woman extraordinaire!
Lara, as well as being on the SAR team, ran the
area for owned and claimed pets. This was her
buddy Spot who she had tagged up for dal rescue.
The Grooming Shop is open!
Mary (on right), from VA, took on the task of
shaving down the little Havanese I rescued Miss
Hurricane. We patched her into the emergency
power at the Winn Dixie for her clippers
There is so much left to do
Gail (FL) sits next to a dog who died on the
mostly empty and dangerous streets of New
Orleans. She was trying to capture the other dog,
still living, who would not leave the deceased
dog's side. The wary dog would not let her leash
it after nearly an hour of trying. Frustrated, we
finally had to abandon the effort and move on to
other tasks in the momentous job of rescuing the
thousands of pets left behind on the streets of
New Orleans .
But there are happy endings!
A call came into camp that 2 dogs had been left
behind when the owner was forced to evacuate. A
SAR team was sent out and recovered the dogs. I
had the honor of driving them back to their owner
in El Paso.
