KATRINA'S FOUR-LEGGED EVACUEES

Lost in the shuffle of our natural concern for our fellow Americans in the Gulf Coast whose lives have been so thoroughly upended by the fury and cataclysm of Hurricane Katrina is the sobering fact that many pets could not be saved or taken along by displaced families to the emergency shelters.

Here, however, is a story that cheers, provided of course that these animals are soon adopted here in the Houston area.

Here's some useful information (and here as well) for the next time a natural disaster strikes if you're a pet owner and live in an area of the country prone to such catastrophic events. You might want to print this information off for safe-keeping.
