Portfolio: Animals: To the Rescue - shelf dog

A dog is found hiding on a closet shelf in a home destroyed by floodwaters two and a half weeks after Hurricane Katrina ripped through New Orleans. Police had threatened to shoot it citing it as dangerous until Pasado's volunteers arrived and coaxed it down from the shelf.  Many months later, this dog, #84, ended up at the home of his rescuer. As is so often the case, the real work begins once the animal is free and rescuers need to find it a home.
