|At work in Mississippi

[This update is being posted by Tim, not Cydny - since she does not have internet access at the shelter]
Cydny arrived at the Louisiana Humane Society's field shelter in southern Mississippi this afternoon after two long days of driving (she stayed in Knoxville last night). She's been hard at work all evening taking care of numerous dogs and getting oriented with the work at hand. In the morning, she'll be heading out early with a team of volunteers into the non-flooded areas of New Orleans to rescue stranded animals. She reports that it is hot, humid, and buggy - but a safe environment. The biggest threat so far are the people who hide in bushes near the dog cages, and then attempt to steal pitbulls and other valuable dogs at night. Apparently people are that lame? Dog looters? If they want one so bad, they should get their lazy ass into the city and rescue an animal themselves.
Anyhow, I am happy to report that Cydny has successfully arrived and is jumping right into a busy and stressful work schedule. I'll update for her again tomorrow if she doesn't find internet access, and I'll pass on any well-wishes that you leave for her!
