Casting aside our usual format of speaking at some length with one guest, today we presented a program looking very specifically at the animals affected by Katrina, through conversation with three people who traveled to Louisiana and environs to rescue, treat, care for and otherwise help the animals there: DR. JENNIFER CONRAD of Animal General Hospital (& The Paw Project), MICHAEL MOUNTAIN of Best Friends Animal Society and MEG BRUBACHER, a woman who drove from Canada to Louisiana to rescue more than a dozen dogs–three disparate guests with disparate stories, and separate, snapshot-chats with each yielded a uniquely illuminating, revealing mosaic of the post-Katrina animal situation there. [www.AnimalGeneralHospital.org, www.BestFriends.org Brubacher doesn’t have a web site, but to help with the considerable costs she incurred–and continues to, with medical care & other expenses for some of those animals–send donations to her at 49 Ronda, Unit 140, Guelph Ontario, Canada, N1H 7A4]
