Woof! Fleur de Lis for Pet Charity!
It is quite appropriate that this ancient symbol of royalty depicting a lily is reflected in modern times as “the continuing presence of heraldry in everyday life” New Orleans, known for itâ€™s music, wonderful old architecture, French Quarter, food, people and spirit proudly portrays the Fleur de Lis everywhere you may look. This symbol of strength, fortitude and spirit also reflects New Orleans as it rebuilds, post-Katrina.
When hurricane Katrina hit the city of New Orleans – many lives were changed. Part of this change occured as dogs and cats were separated from owners. This is just one element in the aftermath of hurricane Katrinaâ€¦.many lives, homes and businesses were changed forever. Katrina created the largest pet rescue endeavor in history. This mission continues â€“ and the need is great.
The total damage from Katrina is estimated at $81.2 billion (2005 U.S. dollars), nearly double the cost of the previously most expensive storm, and Katrina redistributed New Orleans’ population across the southern United States.
