Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470228512, Hardcover)In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, many animals had to fend for themselves because their owners lost them or were unable to care for them. In Pawprints of Katrina: Pets Saved and Lessons Learned, Cathy Scott documents her experience working with the Best Friends Animal Society triage center to rescue lost animals and reunite them with their owners. Over two hundred stories with accompanying photos describe dramatic and challenging rescue cases with details about the rescues, the examinations, treatment, and follow-up care by the selfless volunteers who worked to save beloved best friends.

Includes nearly 200 heroic rescues, heartwarming reunions, and stories of selfless efforts of strangers brought together by a disaster to save animals because their owners were unable to. The reader will also meet the volunteers who made the rescue efforts possible. Author Cathy Scott worked beside them, not only writing about the animals, but also helping to rescue and reunite them while in the Gulf on assignment. Scott's unique approach comes from being both on the ground and in boats, witnessing firsthand the rescues and the resulting reunions between human refugees and their pets. She presents not only the most dramatic and challenging cases, but also describes many other tales of large groups of pets left to fend for themselves, then plucked to safety.--From publisher description.
