Dear Jared,

In response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina yesterday, The Humane Society of the United States has launched a massive relief effort to rescue animals and assist their caregivers in the disaster areas.

Even as you read this, our highly-trained Disaster Animal Response Teams are heading to Mississippi to begin a multi-state animal rescue and recovery effort. Our 38-foot Disaster Response Unit and other rescue vehicles affiliated with our teams are fully stocked and on their way.

Our entire relief effort is funded by donations from people like you, and we desperately need your support. Please make an emergency contribution to our Disaster Relief Fund today. Your tax-deductible gift will be used exclusively for our disaster animal relief work. Click here to make your gift:

Even at this early stage, Katrina promises to be one of the most devastating hurricanes on record. Please keep the human and animal victims in your thoughts, and please consider making an emergency donation today to help our disaster relief teams save as many stranded and injured animals as possible. My dedicated corps of professionals and volunteers sends our gratitude as we get set to enter the disaster zone.

Sincerely,

Laura Bevan Incident Commander HSUS National Disaster Animal Response Team Florida Panhandle Staging Area

P.S. As the leader of our on-the-ground disaster relief efforts, I can tell you first-hand that the difficult and dangerous task of saving animals’ lives in disaster situations is vital not only to the animals, but to the people who love them, too. Any support you can provide for our animal relief work is deeply appreciated. Click here to make your contribution to the Humane Society Disaster Relief Fund:
