10 years later. Hurricane Katrina Animal Rescue

A look back at my work as a volunteer photojournalist with an animal rescue group.

30 days after Hurricane Katrina, I lead a group of 3 volunteer photojournalist to document the effort to rescue animals in the Lower 9th Ward. What we saw was a neighborhood devastated by the hurricane. Now mostly unpopulated there was not much in animals. Some dead, some abandon, many strays. But the team saved a few and even reunited one dog with it's owners. We tromped around in waist-high toxic floodwaters with our cameras strapped on. We bed down in the parking lot of a Winn-Dixie, in tents, on the asphalt parking lot, in 90 degrees of humidity. It was quite an experience.
