Bayou Rescue, Inc. Overview
Bayou Rescue specializes in meeting needs of families with pets after disaster, in order to help families either reunite with their pets, or to enable them to keep their pets in the family. We do this through educating families with pets on how to prepare for disaster; providing volunteers to assist in searching for missing pets after disaster; and providing funding for vet care, boarding, or foster care after families lose their homes due to disaster.
