Society/Others Donate to Victims of Katrina

The AHS/POPCORN PARK ZOO is involved in supporting the rescue and relief efforts in the Louisiana/Mississippi tragedy. Pictured at right, loading a van from Popcorn Park Zoo filled with 1000 pounds of dry dog/cat food and a huge box of 100's of t-shirts for those in need in LA/MS. Our Zoo General manager drove the supplies to a central point in Beach Haven at Dave's Appliance where tractor trailers were departing for New Orleans. The Society will be getting in another 53' trailer load of about 2000 pounds of pet food that we will donate and which will be sent to the LA/MS area next week. Additional donations will also be sent to us through the courtesy of Kohls Department Store. Listed below are just some of the donations still needed by those suffering as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

In addition, the Society has opened it's doors and hearts to accepting 35 dogs and 12 cats needing placement from LA/MS. We are currently awaiting clearance on receiving these pets as health issues are clarified, etc.
