Thank you for visiting! Hopefully you will be as moved as I was about this good cause to donate to my goal of raising $2,000 for Noah's Wish by March, 2012! I love animals and know in times of diasters they completely depend on humans to rescue, provide food, shelter and protect them! That's what Noah's Wish does.

Here are just a few disaster summaries that Noah's Wish Helped out with:
1. Hurricane Katrina Noah’s Wish cared for a total of 1,974 animals in the three months following hurricane Katrina. A temporary shelter was setup in Slidell, Louisiana within 72 hours after Katrina hit. This was due, in part, to a prior Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Slidell Animal control.During the time Noah's Wish was mobilized, all the animals in our care remained at the shelter. That is why over 75% of the animals in our shelter were identified by their families. Stray animals were held a minimum of 60 days and, in a good number of cases, 90 days before being placed in foster homes or adopted.Noah's Wish utilized 875 volunteers, who logged 41,500 hours over a three month period to staff and operate the shelter.
Team Noah's Wish is in its 3rd year as an official charity of the Honda LA Marathon. Noah's Wish is a volunteer-based organization that provides vital animal disaster rescue services in natural disasters in the US and Canada. Team Noah's Wish was named the 2011 Honda LA Marathon BEST OVERALL CHARITY!
