Recovery from the devastation of hurricane Katrina is going to take alot of money and time - and very little of this will come from the Bush Administration as we have witnessed through his typical slow and indifferent reaction to getting aid to those hit hardest in New Orleans, Mississippi and Alabama - please click on the above site and donate whatever you can - it will go directly towards those who desperately need it.
You can also help by going to CDBaby.com where you can purchase my CD's as well as many other artists who are donating all profits to helping those unfortunate people in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.
After most of the people have been aided and rescued in coastal and inland Louisiana and Mississippi, FEMA and other officials on-site will allow certified animal rescue workers into the affected areas. Pets left behind, animals in shelters, horses and livestock still alive will receive direct aid and rescue from these organizations:
