Hurricane Katrina in Pictures
When Hurricane Katrina made landfall on August 29, 2005, it forever changed the landscape of the Gulf Coast, and not just physically. Hurricane Katrina had a direct impact on how we prepare and respond to disasters, especially regarding animals. The entire world watched as we rescued stranded animals, provided medical care for them and helped their owners. Below are images of the animal shelter at the LSU AgCenter John M. Parker Coliseum on LSU's campus, rescues done throughout south Louisiana and some of our amazing volunteers who came from across the U.S. to help.
