Our pets will never be left behind again. Seven years ago today, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Many people had left assuming they would be back in days so they did not (or could not) take their pets. Others tried to take their pets at the last moment but were turned back from government busses. Adopt-a-Pet.com was instrumental in saving thousands of pets in the following days and weeks and helping reunite pets with their families. As Hurricane Isaac now threatens New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, we remember on this day all the people and animals who suffered seven years ago. We hope for the safety of everyone there now, and we pledge to not repeat the mistakes of the past. No one shall be left behind.
