OH THE GENEROSITY!

I spoke to Southern Fried Girl about the $150 I raised for her through the donation button in the sidebar. She told me that her home was only minimally damaged in hurricane Katrina and that I should give the money to Amanda B.
Amanda told me that everyone has already been so generous and so we decided to donate the money to a charity that is helping the animals affected by Katrina.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what charity the money should go to?

Here's a good link on Petfinder.com that we could use.

i've been doing research since i got your e-mail about this, torrie! i didn't want to just put something down without seeing who could really use it. i might stop by that pet shelter to see if they still need fans, as it was SO HOT when i went there last time. i'll let you know! hugs.

Hi Torrie!

I love that you're doing this, it's such a generous and thoughtful thing to do.

I know these guys could use some donations, they've been working hard in LA and desperately need supplies.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page for more donation info. I admit I got a little teary when I first heard about what they're doing and what they're seeing but they're amazing.

Just an idea!

ohm'gosh, kay-see, i KNOW the st. martins in that article...i lived about three miles from them up until two months ago! they are very worthy of a donation, i can assure you! he's a lawyer, but if you can find a way to give money to the organization that he's hosting, i'm sure that would help things! wow, thanks for pointing this out. :)

Seriously?! That's amazing! I just sent them a letter like they mentioned on the site since I'm short on $ this month and can't donate yet. What a coincidence that you know them!

I dont have anything to add about which charity, just a comment on thoughtful you are and what a beautiful soul you have.

My cousin works with Food Not Bombs. I don't know a whole lot about them, but I do know they don't have any overhead, so everything goes to helping people. They're still helping people affected by Katrina. If you wanted to help out the animals you could give it to the ASPCA. That's all I can think of.

Safe Haven or the ASPCA?

Oh that is sooo nice of SFG! In addition to the places already mentioned there is also The Humane Society, and BestFriends.com.
I just checked out the Pasado site that Kay-see posted a link for and it certainly looks like they are doing wonderful things and RazDreams can vouch for them too! :)

more info on the same group from the local newspaper: http://www.houmatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050918/BREAKING/509180309/-1/weather02

after the pets leave there, they're taken to one of two places closer to me, one of which i volunteered at.
