The "Foster-a-Pet" Program for Katrina Victims

Hi everyone,

I just learned about being a foster parent for a pet(s) orphaned by Hurricane Katrina. I begged Mom to take in some felines but she said no, there are too many pets living here as it is. I think the real reason is that she is suspicious of my desire to "care" for luscious lithe kitty cats.

Here's a note I found online about fostering.
Dear Friends,

In the past few days, we have received so many emails from people who would like to provide a temporary foster home to a pet left homeless by Hurricane Katrina.

We have offered to put together a database of foster homes for the ASPCA disaster teams and other organizations working on the front lines, and they have accepted our offer.

If you live outside of the region affected by the hurricane, you are still welcome and encouraged to sign up. Please know, though, that you will be expected to provide a way to transport the pet(s) to you. If you are asked to travel to the region to pick up your foster pet(s), you will be responsible for all travel costs, arrangements, and accommodations during your trip.

Thank you so very much for your generosity in the face of this horrible tragedy!
