Rescued dog gives birth

Big Rewards

It wasn't a moment too soon for a rescued pregnant dog, who gave birth to 10 puppies yesterday at the Muttshack compound at Lake Castle School.

That wasn't the only thing the Muttshackers experienced that day. A german shepard dog was rescued after 71 days in its home since Katrina, very thin but alive. The dog is under good care now and regaining its strength.

Roaming Animals in New Orleans

An update from the Muttshack Unit in New Orleans ...

More animal rescues continue. Trap cages are being set to pick up the roaming dogs in the streets of New Orleans after Katrina. The Muttshack camp at the Castle Lake School is currently sheltering about 40 dogs. There were 25 cats shipped out to volunteer fosters, leaving 65 cats left at the Muttshack N.O. compound to find fosters for.

Donations for animal rescue efforts are still needed so the Muttshackers can remain in New Orleans to continue their work there. It's a big job, and not many are doing it. Thanks for anything you can do.
