All Creatures Great and Small
New banners are up folks - please click on them to make a donation if you haven't already. Given the size and scope of this disaster, we all might want to think about setting aside 10% or some other substantial portion of our paychecks for some time to come. This is going to take a while.

I'm creating a post for a comment from my buddy Erin out in CO. Erin is a Ph.D. Field Biologist for the US Geological Survey.

All we're hearing about is the people situation--obviously horrific, but what about all of those pets, zoo and aquarium animals who were left (or forced to be left like Snowball)? Go to the following websites to help the animal community:

1) The Lincoln Park Zoo is coordinating efforts: To make a donation, people can visit the Lincoln Park Zoo web site and click on hurricane relief, or mail a check, made out to The Lincoln Park Zoological Society, and send it to: Lincoln Park Zoo, P.O. Box 14903, Chicago IL 60614, Attention: Hurricane Katrina Relief. All donations will be channeled directly to aid the zoo [The Audubon Zoo]and aquarium and their staff members in New Orleans. The Executive Committee of the AZA Board of Directors will handle the distribution of these funds.

2) The Humane Society of the United States
