A man and his piglet

Honey, a two-month-old piglet, was found alone on a levee surrounded by Hurricane Isaac's floodwater in Plaquemines Parish. Lori Wilson, in conjunction with the local animal control, brought him back to Rescue Ranch, her equine sanctuary and rescue group, where RedRover Responders volunteers were stationed to help care for equines affected by flooding.

Hurricane Isaac: Photos

On September 1, five RedRover Responders volunteers traveled to Alexandria, Louisiana, to provide emergency sheltering for animal victims of Hurricane Isaac. Volunteers assisted evacuated pet owners with the daily care of their pets, and provided food, water and comfort for pets whose families were not located nearby until they could be reunited. Over the course of 3 days, our volunteers cared for nearly 150 animals.

Here are a few of our photos from the emergency shelter, taken by RedRover Responders volunteer Kevin Boyle.

Let's just get right to the point:

This is where the rusty cages used to be, stacked two high, with about three dogs in each cage. In just a few days, the dogs' lives have changed forever. This empty room represents freedom for the dogs who used to face living all their days, weeks, months and years here.
