The Humane Society of the United States: Members of The Humane Society's Animal Rescue Team are deployed to several counties to assist in transportation of animals during recent floods in Louisiana.

"The recent flooding has displaced many family pets and caused damage to shelters throughout Louisiana," Julia Breaux, Louisiana state director for The HSUS said. "The Humane Society of the United States is assessing the needs of the displaced animals and damaged shelters, and is providing hands-on assistance, while these communities continue to endure heavy rain and flooding and look towards recovery."
