South Burlington, Vermont - November 18, 2006
It's been almost fifteen months since Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. Most of the people who were left homeless have since found a place to live. But there are still homeless pets.
And several dogs from the South are in Vermont looking for new homes. A lot of them were rescued from shelters in the state of Georgia. A group called Georgia Animal Rescue and Defense has set up shop in Vermont, and is putting homeless dogs up for adoption. "We have some wonderful dogs that need adoption," said the rescue groups, Joy Bohannon. "We have some special needs. This is a blind Australian Shepherd that was over-bred, and we need a special home for her."
The group will be holding adoption clinics at the Pet Food Warehouse on Williston Road in South Burlington the third Saturday of the month through the winter. For more information on Georgia Animal Rescue: www.gardonline.org or call their Vermont phone number: 802-343-2819.
