As the BP
oil-spill civil case
 unfolds in New Orleans, we thought this would be a good time to update you on some
of the companion animals PETA rescued as people fled the region in the wake of the catastrophe

Disasters such as the one in the Gulf flood animal shelters with
dogs and cats whose families lose their jobs or see their businesses go bust. With
support from the fabulous Pamela
Anderson
, PETA workers drove a Winnebago carrying more than 40 homeless dogs and nearly 30 special-needs
cats
 from New Orleans–area shelters to Virginia, where they were placed in permanent
homes, including three who live in PETA’s Norfolk headquarters, the Sam Simon Center

It’s a testament to their resilient spirits that these animals
have rebounded from abandonment and are now thriving in their new homes. Here’s
where some of them are now:

  • Daisy:
    At 4 months old, this Chihuahua mix found her forever home in Washington, D.C.,
    and will celebrate her third birthday next month. She instantly bonded with
    Chloe—another dog PETA rescued—and loves to play fetch and snuggle under the blankets.

  • Duke and
    Buttercup:
    These Chihuahuas act like their new guardian, Amber’s shadows, following
    her everywhere she goes and meeting her at the door every evening after work.
    Both dogs delight in the companionship of Amber’s two children and Nikita, a mutt rescued by PETA during another disaster, Hurricane Irene

  • Bubbles,
    Brandi, and Marshall:
    These three have become the beloved feline residents
    of the Sam Simon Center. Bubbles’ expertise is in intercepting tossed balls of
    paper, while Brandi proudly carries around a rubber lizard. And although
    Marshall is missing a leg, that doesn’t stop him from playing “King of the
    Castle” with the other two on their multistory cat tree.

    PETA’s rescue work is made possible by the support of kind
    people like you. To help PETA save animals in danger, become a member today.
