AKC and AKC Companion Animal Recovery Working to Provide Relief to Canine Victims of Hurricane Katrina Friday, September 02, 2005
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the American Kennel Club (AKC®) and affiliated organizationAKC Companion Animal Recovery are working to provide relief where it is most needed by animals and the people helping them.
The AKC is in contact with delegates, presidents and secretaries of AKC Member and Licensed Clubs in the hurricane-stricken states and is working closely with the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Houston Kennel Club and the Florida Association of Kennel Clubs to determine where shelters and staging areas will be established so that supplies and assistance may be provided. Contact has been made with the shelter director of the
Louisiana State University Veterinary School to provide an initial shipment of supplies.
“The AKC is greatly saddened by the devastating hurricane that continues to leave a path of destruction across the South,” said Dennis B. Sprung, AKC President and CEO. “Notwithstanding the human tragedy and untold billions of dollars in damage, we expect there are untold numbers of canine victims that are in desperate need of our assistance. Today we are arranging for the shipment of crates, exercise pens and feeding and water bowls, and will continue do everything in our power to find ways to help. “
Dog clubs, shelters or individuals in need of assistance are asked to contact us
