ARNO-Animal Rescue New Orleans

This group evolved from the original rescue work done in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

"ARNO Needs Donations and Warehouse SpaceARNO's main building received zero damage from Gustave (or Katrina), but had severe damage to the outside kennel area in the rear (perimeter fencing, $5k tent torn to shreds, commercial propane heaters bent like pretzels, etc.), the outside front TNR/isolation/cleaning area (tent torn to shreds, perimeter wooden fencing ripped up and splintered, plus supply shelving bent from the strong winds), and the cat breezeway area (enclosed ends were ripped out and destroyed, along with cooling fans). Our two freezers died on us... ! Estimates are at $15,000 to $25,000 in damages.

Needless to say, we are in a pinch to raise funds to help us rebuild our operation, and we do need donated transport assistance to get our animals home. You can help us by securely donating using PayPal. Mars Pet Food is going to help us by donating a large amount of food to help us feed the animals roaming on the street and our shelter animals. We are trying to find warehouse space near us in the Elmwood Business Park area. The problem is we have no place to store food right now, as a good part of our warehouse has to be used for housing animals until we rebuild the breezeway and outside kennels. Know a big donor? Donations can help pay for one or if you know someone willing to help, please let us know.

Keep checking our website, as we try to update regularly or for info email "
