The forgotten dogs of Katrina: Fresh appeal to help pets abandoned in the wake of the devastating storm as it's revealed many are still waiting for a home TEN YEARS later

  • When Hurricane Katrina hit 10 years ago, pit bulls were abandoned in their hundreds as the flood waters receded 
  • They were either chained to the empty lots or displaced by homes destroyed by floodwaters
  • Some simply lost their owners but, a decade on, some of them are still trying to find a home 
  • In August 2012, Villalobos Rescue Center (VRC) became the main advocates for rehousing the dogs 
  • They have roughly 40 in their care, and are desperately trying to get the happy dogs a home
