VERMILLION PARISH, LA — Bayou Rescue, an organization providing disaster relief and rescue response for animals and their caretakers, has put out a call to truckers for help in transporting much needed feed to animals still suffering from the after effects of hurricanes Rita and Katrina.
Many areas of the gulf have not only lost a high number of horses, cattle, and other livestock, but have also had fields severely damaged by saltwater from Rita and Katrina. This poses the additional challenge of not being able to grow enough hay and other food to feed animals that are still alive. > Ann Jordan, who works with Bayou Rescue (www.bayourescue.typepad.com), has found a generous donor in Mocksville, NC who has offered 3,400 bales of desperately needed hay. This hay is to go to Vermillion Parish, LA and Harrison County MS, and literally can mean life or death for animals that have already beaten the odds. This is an effort in a partnership with Hay There and In Defense of Animals. > However, weeks have passed and they have yet to find anyone that can transport the hay down to LA and/or MS. > Six 48’semi trailers and manpower are needed to load and move the hay. > If you would like to help, or know someone who can, contact Ann Jordan at: > firstname.lastname@example.org 704-287-7512 daytime phone 704-485-4344 nights
