Operation Pet Lift
I'm sure many of you join me in concern for the pets along the Gulf Coast. Now comes news of the first major airlift of dogs rescued from the region. They were brought to California, thanks to Texas oil tycoon Boone Pickens and his wife Madeleine. The move was organized by PetRelocation.com. It's just a drop in the bucket but there is some good news.
The Humane Society's Dave Pauli, director of the Gonzales facility, said 200 animals were shipped out Sunday by truck to Houston, but rescue teams expected to bring in about 300 more in the afternoon.
About 200 animals have been reunited with their owners at the facility.
"That's what keeps us going," Pauli said. "Every one of them brings a tear to your eyes and makes these sleepless nights worth it."
Amen to that.
