Noah's Wish - Tails from the Ark

CarmiePortraitSmall If you aren't familiar with Noah's Wish, I'd like to introduce you today. I first came across this site during the Katrina Hurricane disaster. As many pet people, I was worried about what was happening to all the animals - who, I wondered, was gathering up lost dogs and cats, and what were they going to do with them?

Well, someone introduced ME to Noah's Wish and I immediately donated to the fund. As it says on their website, their mission is, " save animals during disasters with our rescue and recovering services and to mitigate the impact of disasters on animals through our educational outreach programs."

I really like the way Noah's Wish has grown.

They now have Volunteer In-Field Training, a pet photo contest, disaster preparedness info (similar to our own info over at the PurinaCare pet health insurance blog), and they are holding an Art and Book Auction from May 22nd (little late announcing it, sorry), through June 1st. So, you still have time to get in on it. It's all happening on eBay. Ain't technology grand?Cutest puppy

One of the most amazing parts of Noah's Wish is the links to all the places they've been - in their efforts to rescue animals during major disasters, including the Souther California Fires. On their Disaster Drills page it says, "The purpose of the conference was to bring together emergency responders and disaster preparedness workers from across the nation to network and learn from each other - [using] the new best practices, in real-time and real-world response."

Maybe you'd like to join Noah's Wish and train to be a Disaster Coordinator or rescue person? Maybe you have a few bucks to help support the work they're doing to help keep our pets safe during very difficult time. Maybe you could just spread the word - more eyeballs certainly means more -much needed- attention.
