Even though your pets routinely become part of our families, after the shock of a natural disaster they're statistically some of the first things left behind or lost. PETA's breathless search in Baton Rouge days after the record flooding turned up 62 abandoned animals of all species from the flooded backyards, streets, and homes—many tied up or caged with no food and water!

But instead of braving a post-disaster swamp, Benny the dog, Crash the cockatiel, and Lafayette and Thibodaux the kittens are soaking up love from their new families in Virginia!
