PET OWNERS: Check here regularly for important information and updates

If your pet seems to be "lost in the system" be sure to check the website for Animal Rescue New Orleans often for info and updates on continuing search and rescue work in New Orleans.

Locate Your Lost Katrina Pet
Event hosted by
Best Friends in New Orleans Dec. 16-18

We know it has been difficult, even impossible, for families who are missing their pets to navigate all of the available resources.

This event will allow you to search in one place for your missing pets. We will set up banks of computers and give families the opportunity to work with reunion specialists to search for their pets – on a first come/first served basis.

We have asked numerous groups, including Mutt Shack, Grassroots Emergency Animal Rescue (at the Winn Dixie), Humane Louisiana, and Pasado’s Safe Haven to participate, bringing their databases and intake records. We have invited Petfinder, Stealth Volunteers and other reunion specialists to participate as well.

SPCA Cincinnati has many cats and dogs at their shelter

Click here to go to their site to search for Katrina pets. They have a link for cats and one for dogs. Lots of dogs. If you see a photo that you think may be your pet, copy and save the photo and all related information on your hard drive. Katrina pet information is disappearing off shelter websites.

PetHarbor now has a complete list of the dogs sent to EDNAH

1. Go to Petharbor
2. Scroll below the Rita links until you see the yellow box labeled Project Barkansas and click on the dog link.
3. The photos are all blurred until you click on a specific one.
There are now 13 pages of dogs listed. Because the current location of those dogs is still a mystery, if you see your dog there, contact us - include the photo of the dog, the PetHarbor name and number and a description - breed, color, gender. I hope to find out the current location of these dogs soon.

St. Bernard Parish Pets
Photo albums of the pets rescued by Camp Lucky can be viewed at the following location:
Government Complex Building
Public Works Office
2nd Floor
Telephone 504.278.4317
Monday - Friday 8 am - 4 pm (may also be opened on weekends)

This phone number is for Animal Control but will be dispatched to the Government Building where the temporary Control Unit is currently operating. They hope to move from the Public Works Office back to the original Animal Control Site later this week so be sure to call ahead.

These photos are of animals rescued by Camp Lucky through October 1st. The original group of animals went to the SPCA in Los Angeles:

Most of the next rescues went to the Humane Society in Pinellas / Clearwater Florida, or the Wild Animal Orphanage in San Antonio, Texas. Some but not all of the photos/reports have begun to appear on Petfinder, so if possible, travel into the Parish to view the actual photos.

If you need help searching for your lost or missing pet, please follow these recommendations. We have very little time left to find many pets for many people, so please understand that these recommendations are intended to benefit the most number of people with the limited resources available. The phone number is only for those people without internet access. Everyone else, please use email.

Our volunteers have access to resources and information that may not be available to the public, so if you are already working with someone who is able to help you in that way, please understand that we can't ask another volunteer work with you too. We need to adhere to having just one-volunteer per pet owner. There are thousands of missing pets and only hundreds of volunteers, all with limited time to do this, and we are trying to help as many people as possible. We would like to be able to find every single missing pet so the better allocated our resources, the more likely we are able to do that. Thank you for understanding.

Send an email to noanimalleftbehind@gmail.com with all of the following information:

1) In the subject heading - write Searching for Max, Male German Shepherd mix (or whatever the name, sex and breed of your dog is) or Searching for Fluffy, female orange tabby. Include all of the following information:

2) The address the pet was left at, rescued from or last known to be, even if this is just a neighborhood. Include zip code and name of section, parish, etc. If the pet is known to have been rescued, the date to the best of your knowledge. Mention any writing on the house or notes left by rescue groups. The more specific you can be, the better. If you do not know for sure if your pet was ever rescued, please indicate that.

3) A complete description of the pet - breed(s); color; sex including if spayed or neutered; age; weight; approx. height; markings; color of eyes; condition of teeth including if any are missing; any scars. All unique characteristics such as if one ear is bent in a different way than other ear; docked tail; extra toes; spots on tongue, etc.

If there is a Petfinder LOST report, please include the Petfinder number(s).

4) Collar (type, color), tags, or any other external identification. All known information from tags. If the pet is micro-chipped, include the number if known.

5) Any other pets left at/rescued from this address and whether they are still missing or have been found. If found, where and when. If missing, please list separately.

6) Your name, current phone number and email address. Also, your old phone number in New Orleans if now out-of-service. Your current complete mailing address.

7) Please include a photo of your pet if you have one. If you have one but are not able to send it electronically, we will help you get the photo sent to us.

Thank you very much! Check this specific link often for updates and information.

It was just learned that the LaSPCA, who rescued animals from New Orleans in October and took them to their new shelter in Algiers, posted these animals on the wrong section of PetHarbor. These animals do not show up in a normal PetHarbor search for Katrina animals and they are not on Petfinder.

To searh the LaSPCA pets on PetHarbor, visit the Animal Rescue New Orleans website and click on the Find Lost Pets link for easy step-by-step instructions.
