Bayou Rescue, Inc.
January 31, 2012

I met the former president of Bayou Rescue in 2009 through my work as the head of UNC-Chapel Hill's animal welfare group, Helping Paws. We worked with Bayou Rescue to help create animal disaster bags of necessities for the Red Cross to hand out to people with pets affected by fire and other disasters. Bayou Rescue was always very appreciative of any help that we provided. In 2010 I found a group of feral cats on the UNC campus and I needed help Trapping, neutering, and releasing them. Bayou Rescue supported me through lending me humane traps, advice, and posting on their Facebook page asking for donations. In 2011, Bayou Rescue told me of an opportunity to go to Fukushima, Japan to participate in animal rescue in the radiation-affected area. They raised all of the money for my round-trip flight, provided me with supplies, gave advice once I was on the ground, and sent much needed medicine to Japan. My stay in Japan was supposed to last only 2 and a half weeks and ended up being a 6 month stay once I realized the dire need for volunteers. Throughout, Bayou Rescue supported me by sharing my blog on their Facebook Page and sending kind words. When I came back in December, I brought a dog back from Japan for adoption. Bayou Rescue found a foster home for him and found placement for him in the best possible home. I can't say enough great things about Bayou Rescue!!!
