The Dogs of Hurricane Katrina
Standard poodle in the debris and water.
Notice the two dogs to the right -- strangled and dead after jumping over the rail.
Wet and bedraggled with nothing to eat and no dry spot to rest.
Four large dogs on a wet car roof. No telling how long they have been there.
A matted terrier of some sort tries to find something to eat by licking the sharp metal edges of a can.
A young dog in oil-contaminated water. As desperate as it gets.
Unspeakable joy, unspeakable sorrows.
Flat bottomed boat from the DNR with dog crates on a rescue mission.
Hope has arrived for this dog. No telling where the owners are, however, and there are many more dogs than people with homes to care for them.
