New Orleans Animal Rescue
When the last person was rescued from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, 250,000 lives were still stranded: the city's pets - barred from the evacuation. They swam through toxic sludge and huddled on water-lapped roofs. Most were weak, many were injured. All were hungry and scared.
In the largest animal rescue in history, volunteers from across America ventured into the deserted city. In weeks to come, they found a child's beloved cat - still at home, shriveled to skin and bones; a gentle Rottweiler - surviving on the streets for two months; and a hamster named Killer - wandering a hotel, and carrying a surprise.
One by one, the survivors were fed, cleaned, and nursed. Thousands were reunited with their owners. Thousands more were adopted by pet lovers across the country. Narrated by Kevin Bacon, NEW ORLEANS ANIMAL RESCUE tells the story of the unknown victims of America's worst natural disaster - and the people who came to their rescue.
