Amazing stories of courage and survival are revealed as Thirteen/WNET New York's NATURE series presents Katrina's Animal Rescue, premiering Sunday, November 20 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
Capturing the intensity of efforts to save not only dogs and cats but penguins, dolphins, and other zoo and aquarium animals, the film imparts an intimate sense of the triumphs and disappointments of the massive operation. The rescues were undertaken by marine biologists and other volunteers from government and animal welfare groups, including Best Friends Animal Society, Noah's Wish, the Humane Society and the ASPCA.
These wonderful people helped to preserve our humanity. Even in the worst of conditions they showed us that we need to give aid to our pets, companions and all the other animals that we have taken responsibility for.
