Ever wonder what happened to the animals?

Have you ever wondered what happens to the animals separated from their owners in disasters? I just finished watching a film called, "Mine," which followed the efforts of five families trying to get their dogs back after Katrina. It is available for streaming on Netflix. It's about an hour and a half long. Grab some tissues but its DEFINITELY worth the watch.

I know of a few people close to me who's pets were shot by the rescue workers. :( I live in Gulfport MS and travel to New Orleans fairly often-only a 45-60 min drive. Those were the stories that hurt me the most. Thanks for sharing that documentary title. I'll incorporate it into our homeschool lesson tomorrow so I can watch it. :)

I actually watched it for my Animals in Society class. I have to write a 500 word essay on it. But it made the stories so real. I was able to say, "What if that were me?" And really sympathize with the owners who had no choice but to leave their animals. One woman was actually physically pulled away from her dog. :-(

I wasn't legitimately asking what happens to them. I was suggesting people watch the documentary. It makes it so real. These people had no choice.

 My friends and family have been going through this for the months since Sandy.  The posts consume my FB feed, people looking for their lost animals.

How sad. :-(
I hope they're able to find, and be reunited with their animals.

After the tornado hit Joplin, one family has continued searching for Hanah, their white American Bulldog. They were all in the closet, and Hanah was ripped from her human mom's arms. Someone did get a picture of her after the storm and someone in a dark truck came to pick her up. They are still trying to find her. Here is her Facebook page and here is the photo taken of her after the tornado:
