I got this information via email today. If you are a pet person (like I am) and you are still looking for some way to help, here is another one. If you know someone in the afflicted area that needs shelter for their pets, direct them here.

Please crosspost widely... Help for pets in New Orleans....Cross-posted - please share! Please just let all members know that we have opened a pet shelter at Blackham Coliseum in Lafayette, right next to the Cajundome. Evacuees may bring their pets their for housing. We havePLENTY of food, water, crates, cages, bedding and newspaper. BUT the owners are responsible for feeding, watering, walking and medicating their own pets. Interested parties may call Lafayette Parish Animal Control at: 337-291-5644 for more information. Also many area vets are accepting animals right now, until they fill up. Get the Yellow Pages out! Please help me to get this word out.
