Pet Rescues in the Gulf Coast...

...are continuing, thanks to some remarkable efforts like this one. But there are many, many animals out there:
In addition to untold numbers of pets killed, animals made homeless by the hurricane are wandering hungry and confused throughout the Gulf Coast.

Wayne Pacelle, president and chief executive of the Humane Society of the United States, said, "In New Orleans alone, we think there are 50,000 pets."

Details of more efforts here, and here, and here, and here. Also here and here, and here.

Here is something you can do if you are in the US and would like to offer assistance.

This letter from a reader to the Delaware Online reflects the views of almost all pet owners worldwide:
I can't imagine what I would do if I was told that I must leave my pet behind to die. For some people, it is like telling someone to leave their child behind to die... Is it not a known fact that pets rely on their owners to care for them not only with food and shelter, but with love and kindness? I would hope that even people who don't have pets would empathize and understand that even a pet is a vital member of a family. - Amy Spavlik, Hockessin

I think people often overlook the importance of grooming their pets as a way to contribute to their overall good health. Here are just a few more tips on pet grooming. You must groom your pets whole body including the legs, tail, and underbody if you want to do it right.
You must groom certain pets from the skin outward to truly be effective in taking care of their coat of hair and keeping it healthy. Comb through the unseen healthy hair and remove the shedding hair; this is what most groomers do first before cutting your pet's coat. You must groom some animals all at once while some other animals have so much hair that it is esier to do a little at a time each day. You know your pet is well mannerd when it will sit still and alow you or a professional to perform regular grooming and maintenence without any fuss. If you feel you just don't have the time or desire to do it yourself, its time to call the professionals. Your dog will love you for it, and you'll feel great about it too. Hope this was helpful.

To be a adroit human being is to be enduring a philanthropic of openness to the world, an skill to trusteeship aleatory things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally outermost circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly outstanding about the prerequisite of the principled compulsion: that it is based on a conviction in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a prize, something fairly fragile, but whose acutely particular attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.
