Film Screening: Dark Water Rising

21 Jan 2013

Over 50,000 dogs and cats were left behind in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as FEMA required that all animals be left behind in the mandatory evacuation.

This forced separation created America's first-ever major animal rescue.

A dedicated and compassionate group of animal rescuers and animal rescuers from around the world risked their lives to sledgehammer down doors and brave toxic floodwaters in a truly heroic effort to save nearly 10,000 animals.

Dark Water Rising is a film about hope and survival in the face of one of the worst natural disasters in American history.

Showing at Firestorm Cafe and Books, 48 Commerce St.
