Animals and People Threatened by Floodwaters in Dakota & Minnesota
My thoughts today are with the people and animals facing flood waters in North Dakota and Minnesota. The video I've linked to above (and posted at the blog) from the Rachael Maddow Show is an excellent reminder of what good people can do when they come together.
* Pet Owners: The Humane Society in Fargo has set up Emergency Animal Shelters.
* United Animal Nations has notes on including pets in evacuation plans.
Note to us Westerners: They are doing this work in the worst kind of weather, working with a river filled with not just water, but ice. Watch the video. It really is inspiring.
