Imladris Dog Rescue

Dear Lynda,

IDR is a newly founded, small organization that is finally able to take in
one (possibly just several more) Katrina dog! I read your letter for help on
a rescue list some time ago and would like to know if you still need to get
dogs into rescue. Because we focus on dogs that are discriminated against, we would
be able to take dogs labelled as "pit bulls". We are also most likely able
to provide our own transportation or at least help with this!

Thank you so much for what you are doing with these animals - I truly
appreciate your efforts.

id love to adopt a small dog under 10 pounds or foster or 2 cats or kittens. i live in ny.


Hi.There is a man named John Wyrick that evacuated from Katrina to Independence, MO. & left his German Shepherd (Shuma) in the care of a volunteer (Lynn Nevills) at The Eugene Theiss Medical Animal Shelter also in Independence, as he had to stay with relatives & couldn't take Shuma. Now this woman won't give him back his dog !! He raised her from a pup & trained her to help him as he has a serious back problem.This was on our local news & showed the woman & she said why can't he just get another dog !!! And SHE is a volunteer at the animal shelter. I am outraged & don't know who to tell or what to do. Can anyone help me to help John & Shuma...PLEASE???

I am a Rhodesian Ridgeback owner in southern Kentucky. I would be willing to foster and/or adopt a Ridgeback or a Ridgeback mix if you have any in need of a good, loving home and lots of care.

Do you know if the 4 big brown dogs on top of the car and the gray dog peering through the bars were ever rescued? They are part of your Animal Photos dated 9/10/05. I've been worried about them ever since first seeing their pictures on TV. Thanks.


Hi, I would be willing to host some toy poodles. I have one of my own. Melissa in Porltand ME

I can foster a dog....small preferred.


I can foster or adopt 1 or 2 cats. I'm in Tucson, AZ


I can provide an excellent home for a Norwegian Forest Cat or two or a young Miniature dachshund. I can reimburse (cod?) some costs of transportation. I would consider a young Shetland Sheepdog.


PLEASE help me!

His hair on his face around eyes makes him look like he has old man eyebrows....and around his mouth makes him look like he has a Fu Man Chu moustache. Bosco has peach colored tear stains.

Mikey is 9mos old and is curly haired, kind Of fluffy...mixed colors...beige underneath and Charcoal gray/light gray and beige on top...the back of his ears are a rust color He has a beige mask around his eyes, and some beige around his mouth some beige can be seen under the top hair, which is charcoal gray...Mikey has an under bite and looks like a "EWOK" from "Star Wars" he is about 5lbs. he was wearing a black cat collar with rhinestones.

Poody is also 9mos old with cream and white curly hair med/long in length, a little fluffy,and around his ears and his ears are beige ...he has less noticeable beige spots on his back, they are more noticeable when he is wet ...a big one at his rump and a smaller one near his back and one by his shoulder. ....podgy lifts his leg unusually high to urinate...Poody has peachy colored tear stains, he weighs about 3lbs...he was wearing a green cat collar white and yellow fish bones and mice

Jen and Jeremy


We live in upstate New York, and just bought a home hoping to fill it with at least a dog. I have always had a huge affection for animals, and Jeremy has taken me on knowing that I have this obsessive love. We went to the humane society and found out that they were getting Katrina dogs by the week. We didn’t really see anything that we liked this weekend (they will get more this week and we will go to look), but I figured I would drop you a line if you have heard anything about it. Like I said, we are really interested in adopting a dog or even potentially a cat. The only downfall is that we would like to have a female dog, and a male cat. I have nieces, so whatever we adopt needs to get along well with children. If you hear anything please don’t hesitate to email me or call me my cell number is 607-368-9201.

Thank you so much,

Jen and Jeremy
