September 2008 - Louisana

September 1, 2008 – Noah’s Wish volunteers are on the ground in Louisiana preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Gustav. Pre-storm shelters will open to evacuees tomorrow. The shelter in Shreveport will begin accepting animals from 13 pick-up points in Jefferson and Orleans Parishes and convoying them to the shelter. To gauge the magnitude of this process, there are thirteen trucks, each carries over ninety cages.

Gustav came ashore with less force than expected. As soon as possible after the storm passed, Noah’s Wish volunteers were out assessing the damage. In the City of Slidell and St. Tammany Parish, there were power outages, tree limbs down, but relatively little damage considering what was anticipated.? Noah’s Wish volunteers will meet with government representatives later in the day to discuss the need to continue operation of shelters already in place. There is the possibility that the shelters will close in the next day or so.

Noah’s Wish has concluded activities associated with our deployment to Hurricane Gustav. Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time and hard work to make the response such an outstanding success and to those that supported our efforts, we couldn’t do it without you. Noah’s Wish volunteers worked in tough conditions and for many long hours to aid the Gustav victims…people and animals alike.
