NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS

Remembering the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina in
2005, a lot of animals perished for lack of rescue,
and some people died also, because they would not
leave their pets behind.

Colorado is already a pet-friendly state, and they
don't want to see anything like that happen again.

This time, hundreds of pets have been pulled to safety
along with their people. All are welcome at shelters,
though many have had to go to local animal shelters
if their people were unable to care for them.

(See the video on my website: theproblemcat.com.
Give it time to load, as it has some advertising in
it I can't get rid of.)

Here is an article showing how Colorado is conducting
a massive pet friendly rescue:

CAT FOOD NEWS

Animals need our help in Colorado:

While aid is pouring into the state for all humans
affected by the disaster, animals are usually the
last concern.  

The pet food company, PetFlow, has undertaken a massive
effort, as they did after Hurricane Sandy, to help the
rescued animals temporarily housed at the Weld County
Humane Society, where they are in dire need of dog and
cat food for the many animals they have received to
care for.

If you can give, just place an order to be sent directly
to the shelter, where they will distribute the products to
those in need as well as to other shelters that may be low
on supplies.

The Weld County Humane Society is currently caring for nearly
300 animals!
