beloved pets are katrina's victims too

People are not the only casualties of Hurricane Katrina. And as a caring and civilized nation, not only must we care for our people but also the other victims of this horrendous disaster.

I'm begging all those with compassionate hearts to please sign this petition urging that animals are included in future disaster responses.

Many of the people who refused to leave New Orleans did so because they couldn't bear to leave their beloved pets behind and did not have the resources to do so. I know that there are many, many of us who would feel exactly the same way in the same circumstances. In a truly compassionate and civilized society, the idea of any sentient being purposely being left behind would be unthinkable. We claim to care about our poor, our children, our pets and our environment.

As a nation we need to begin putting our money where our mouths are and ensure that every family, every man, woman, child, every living creature that we can possible save can be saved. Thanks so much to everyone for their generosity to others. When we reach out to others we are really reaching out to ourselves, because we are all one.

Bless you all!
