Pam Rogers (Humane Society of the U.S. ) would like all available hands to report to the fairgrounds, Gate 4, to help care for the animals. Many are traumatized, as expected. Please take ANY AVAILABLE CRATES, dog kennels, dog runs, kennel panels, etc that you have access to. They will need help overnight if anyone can stay. This is truly an emergency.
Pam is working with Home Depot to secure kennel panels and kennel runs. We will need people to help assemble them, so BRING YOUR TOOL KIT and zip-ties.
Other needed items: pee pads, any and all cardboard you can take. We slide these between crates so animals don't distress each other.
Please crosspost, and remember that LMAS will need our help to disinfect the buildings when the water recedes. Until then, if you have a van or large-capacity vehicle, you might be asked to run errands to pick up much-needed supplies.
Contact person for this emergency is David Neeson
He's a former LMAS employee who helped create the disaster emergency response.
Thanks to each and every one of you for your help and prayers.

HELP DESPERATELY NEEDED.
Metro Animal in Louisville Ky is flooded and there are many dead dogs and cats in their kennels. Water is waist deep.
I think it was more dead cats than dogs but any death is serious. Oh GodÖwhat a horrible way for these babies to die.
They are in desperate need of volunteers and crates. They need people to transfer animals to the Fairgrounds.
Itís behind the West Wing. Go in Gate 4.
Iím sure they will be needing food as well. Iím not sure what all is needed right now. I donít have any info other than what I am telling you here.
There is more rain on the way
If you can help or have crates, please go to Metro or the Fairgrounds gate 4.
