Noah's Wish

Noah's Wish is a group that helps rescue and care for animals caught in natural disasters:

Noah's Wish is on full mobilization for Hurricane Katrina.

We will have a 7 member initial assessment team in the Region Tuesday, followed by over 80 of our trained Volunteers on Wednesday and Thursday. More Volunteers will be dispatched as needs become known. Given how widespread and devastating this hurricane is projected to be, we are prepared to set up in multiple locations.

As of this morning Hurricane Katrina is an extremely dangerous Category 5 storm with sustained winds of 175 miles per hour. Without a doubt Louisiana, and portions of Alabama, will be the first to experience the wrath of Hurricane Katrina. There are also concerns that heavy rains inland will cause serious flooding. Noah's Wish has teams on alert to respond to any flooding that occurs in inland states.

Noah's Wish has a 10 member team working right now on processing information that we are receiving, including requests for help from animal organizations and individuals in Louisiana. The team will be monitoring this developing storm over the next 48 hours.

If you can, help Noah's Wish out.
