1. Evacuated Animals Return To Flood-Damaged Shelter

8/6/09 – PRESENT SITUATION / NOTES:
Yesterday we alerted you to 8/4/09 floods that drowned 10 kittens and one
dog in their cages at Louisville Metro Animal Services Shelter in Kentucky.
Metro Director Giles Meloche, his staff and volunteers rescued and
transferred about 250 dogs and 300 cats to temporary housing at Kentucky
Fair and Exposition Center.

Today, we’ve learned that all of displaced animals are returning to the
flood-damaged shelter. Our Metro Animal Shelter contact reports: “We no
longer need volunteers at the fairgrounds as we are moving animals back to
the shelter. However, we do need clean-up help at the shelter.”
