We saw evacuating families ...
houston.kpft.org, 10 Feb 2006 [cached]
We saw evacuating families forced to leave their pets behind or choose to remain with their beloved animals when abandoning them was simply out of the question.But the image that brought the world to tears was the story about the little boy whose dog was snatched out of his arms by a police officer as he boarded a bus outside the New Orleans Super Dome."Snowball, Snowball," he cried until he vomited.We will never forget the little white dog standing on two back legs, looking up at the bus, as it pulled away.The policeman told an AP reporter back on September 1, he didn't know what would happen to the dog, small enough to have fit inside the little boy's jacket.
...
With all the chaos in their lives at the time, Les made the heartbreaking decision to take Brutus, his son Lewis' puppy to a shelter in nearby Hammond, LA.
...
Back in Houston..It was hard to watch all the destruction and disruption of lives around Louisiana without wanting to do something to help our neighbors.
...
I have rescued animals all my life and as I watched, helplessly, what was enfolding in the Gulf region, one Saturday in September, I turned to KPFT, our community radio station, to make a plea for the animals of Katrina.
...
Larry Winters, host of "Spare Change" welcomed me warmly and I announced on his popular Saturday music show that "Tomorrow, Sunday, we would be taking up a collection of pet food and supplies in front of KPFT."
...
On Sunday morning, around 9am, I set up a small table, and felt like the little girl at the lemonade stand, not knowing if anyone would show up, but the kind voices of our Sunday Morning "Blues on the Move" show with Mr. And Mrs. V and Nancy enthusiastically reminded their listeners about our collection for the Katrina animals as did the other djs, Nuri Nuri, James Nagle and Chris Hirsch.
...
Listeners to the Sunday blues and bluegrass shows unloaded cars, trunks, and the beds of their pickup trucks with huge bags of cat food/dog food/litter/shampoo/grooming & medical supplies/bleach/toys/collars/leashes/ and crates of all sizes.Many of them brought their own dogs, barking, in a show of support.
By 6pm of that first Sunday (we repeated this again the following week with the same success), the whole front of the KPFT parking lot was filled with pet food and supplies, enough to fill a 32' horse trailer, its dressing room and the back of the largest pickup made.At midnight, three of us, horsewoman/driver Gisela Festerlang, Rochelle Yugo, a KPFT listener and I took off for Louisiana, not sure where we would unload this generous outpouring from the listeners of KPFT.
...
At 6am we arrived in Baton Rouge and at Lamar Dixon, where thousands of animals were being relocated but were informed by a national guardsman that they had plenty of supplies, so we headed for LSU, where thousands more animals were being held and cared for, and even though we had not slept at all, we volunteered there for a few hours.
...
The next day, Les Edwards would receive the surprise of his life when I left a message telling him Brutus was here in Houston, and would be with us until his family's house and fence got repaired.
...
But the day in November Les showed up to take Brutus back home to Louisiana, he jumped for joy.He was so happy, he was almost doing flips.We knew this was the moment Brutus was waiting for.And a few days later Les would tell us on our Thanksgiving special on Go Vegan Texas! how he surprised his eight year old son, Lewis, as he was getting off the school bus that Friday before and Brutus was waiting for him at the bus stop.
We wish the little boy who lost Snowball could have had a joyful reunion, but while there were many sad stories about families and their pets never finding each other, this story has a happy ending ... and it's all because a little community radio station called KPFT reached out to its listeners to help some neighbors up the road in Louisiana ... and especially one little boy and dog, Lewis and Brutus.
