every little bit helps...

this is the response I got from the Noah's Wish foundation - it made me a little weepy...

Dear Friend,

I want to thank you for the part you are playing to ensure that animals were
not the forgotten victims during Hurricane Katrina. Your financial support
will help in so many different ways and you should be proud of what you have
helped to make possible. I wish you could be with us to see the joy and
relief on the faces of the people whose animals needed our help and be the
recipient of some of the juicy kisses we receive from the dogs and heard the
contented purring on the cats that we cuddle in our arms. It is a constant
reminder why we keep doing what we do.

If you need a receipt for tax purposes, please print the attached document
and keep it with your conformation that you receive from PayPal. If you need
further documentation please contact us by e-mail.

Again, thanks for caring and for being a special part of the Noah's Wish

I thought of you when I heard the annoucement that Otis AFB, which is being used to "temporarily" house those affected by Katrina will include families with pets. Among the volunteers requested (teachers, doctors/nurses, etc) they requested vets and volunteers as animal care-takers. They realized (at least here) that some families will simply not leave if it means leaving a pet behind. (And Beth, watching this, says "see, we need a car big enough for a kid, 2 dogs & 3 cats)

Do you know if Noah's Wish is also helping the pets in New Orleans? It seemed like they were focusing on the areas outside of NO. I am so so so so so upset thinking about all the animals trapped inside of houses without food and water.

I followed you over here from Fertility Friend. I love your posts there and here on your blog.

Wanted to say that I too donated to Noah's Wish and am encouraging others to do the same. We cannot forget the animals....

Thanks for your compassion.
