Three dogs waited for rescue in Pass Christian, Mississippi, on August 31, 2005, one day after Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast town. The dogs were later saved by a local police officer.

On September 7 the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) issued an appeal for more assistance from police departments and other government entities. "We need help right now," said HSUS President and CEO Wayne Pacelle. "Federal, state, and local assistance is critical to our efforts to save the thousands of stranded and abandoned pets still out there."
