Looks like some of Katrina's four-footed refugees are coming to Chicago. One of my co-workers wrote:

There are bus loads of animals (cats and dogs) from Hurricane Katrina being brought to Chicago tonight to PAWS. If you have the space in your home and heart to foster (there is no obligation to adopt) these animals for a few days or weeks, they could really use your help! See info below.

PAWS Chicago volunteers will be taking vans down to the Humane Society of Faline County in Bauxite, Arkansas, right outside of Little Rock. Volunteers will be picking up 100-200 homeless pets from the shelter, in an effort to make more room for the animals affected by Hurricane Katrina. This no kill shelter has been inundated by hurricane victim relinquished pets.

If you are interested in fostering, helping with adoptions or caring for these animals, please contact Dave Barta at (773) 521-1408 ext. 236 or Rochelle Michalek at (773) 521-1408 ext. 239.

The animals will be arriving at PAWS Chicago on Wednesday night. If you would like to make a monetary donation for the animals we are rescuing, please call 773-843-4887, or send your check to:

PAWS Chicago
Attn: Lisa Dawson
1110 W. 35th Street
Chicago, IL 60609

**Make sure to write on your check "PAWS Chicago/Katrina Pet Rescue"

If interested in making an in-kind donation of towels, blankets, pet food, etc, please call 773-521-1408 x241.

Thanks for your support!
