This is Chico, pulled from an attic in New Orleans last year nearly starved to death. Now he's chubby and happy, living in the loving care of one of the nuns that went to New Orleans to help rescue dogs abandoned after the hurricaine. He is one of 130 dogs our organization took care of, finding either their owners or homes for all but 10 of them. Those 10, who were ferrel and totally inappropriate for adoption, are currently being rehabilitated in Dakini Valley, Arizona. An emergency operation had been set up there to care for the dogs coming out of New Orleans, and the committment was to see every single one returned to a state of security and safety, in a loving environment.
