REUNION: Rusty the orange cat

Rusty's owner has never given up on him and has been walking in neighborhoods near her home and passed out fliers to anyone she saw.. People began to remember seeing the orange cat. She set a trap for him and caught him yesterday - December 14th. He is at the vet and has been given a clean bill of health. The last time she saw him was August 31st, the day she was forced to evacuate. Connie did everything imaginable to get her pet back and her persistance paid off. Lucky Rusty.

REUNION: Bikini and Vallie found

...all four now reunited!

Steve found Vallie last week in an abandoned house not far from where she, Domino, Muddy and Bikini were left with the dog-sitter.
I just learned that Bikini was rescued
by a wonderful woman named Amy, taken away from a homeless man who was trying to use her as pit-bull bait Here is the email from Bikini's guardian: Yes it is true, we got Bikini back today, this morning!! The best possible Christmas gift ever, really. Yesterday Corky received an email from Dog Detective saying there was a possible match, usually these are imperfect and not even the same breed so we don't tend to put much hope into them but yesterday it happen to really be her. Apparently after the storm she got up to Canal street and a bum picked her up to use as bait to antagonize his three pit bulls, I guess to just pass the time after the strom. An angel of a lady, Amy, saw him and took Bikini away as fast as she could. Then she pampered and loved our little dogger, weekly groomings, tons of treats, new collar and all her shots, honestly this was really the kindest woman I have ever encountered- other that all of you guys that would so hard to help us find both Mud and Nini. We are so happy, I can't stop playing with them and the two dogs follow us from room to room now. Muddy goes to work and everywhere else with Corky these days so I am happy to have Bikini as my sidekick from now on. We are so happy, I can't even begin to explain. I feel like we have recovered from the Storm! Thank you, thank you, all of you. Karma must at work here as on Monday I volunteered to get some of the last strayed caught and shipped up to a new facility in Tylertown, Best Friends. Merry Merry Christmas to all of you. Tavi

Seeking Owners for these Rescued Dogs

The dogs featured in this above posts (which will be updated as often as needed) were rescued and are being sheltered or fostered by people who are not searching for the owners. No Animal Left Behind and Stealth Volunteers are working to reunite these and other Katrina pets with their owners. While there are some pets ( a small percentage) who should not be reunited with their New Orleans owners (documented cases of abuse or neglect), we believe that the great majority of pet owners deserve to have their pets returned to them regardless of whether or not they were heartworm positive or spayed/neutered. Please check back often to offer any help you can. Please also send info and photos of other rescued Katrina pets whose owners are not being searched for to noanimalleftbehind@gmail.com
Check katrinaretrievers.blogspot.com for found goldens and labs seeking owners.
