Noah's Wish Appeals to New Yorkers to Donate Shelter to Katrina Dogs
NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Noah's Wish, a not-for-profit organization that has been working to rescue pets in the aftermath of Katrina, has teamed up with NBC News "Today" for a week-long promotion beginning on September 26, to encourage Americans to purchase and donate dog houses online. The dog houses will be assembled all week at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, which is being transformed into "Humanity Plaza" for five days as volunteers literally construct homes around-the-clock for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina. In addition to helping rebuild the lives of people affected by this tragedy, NBC recognizes that thousands of animals were also victims of Katrina. In response to this, NBC will highlight the efforts of Noah's Wish and Cape May Box Company, which has donated eight pre-fabricated dog houses to Noah's Wish to be assembled by children, celebrities, NBC executives and New Yorkers during the week-long event. Every house that is donated will be shipped to Slidell, Louisiana and given to a family in need.
