Orphans of Katrina

Orphans of Katrina is a vivid, heartfelt journey deep inside the greatest animal rescue in American history.

OToole’s acute eye is a sharp witness to the poignant, fragile land where man and animal band together in the ultimate race against time. She exposes this torrid, uncharted world with revealing photos, striking observations, and startling rescue tales. As she walks us through this unfathomed land, she makes a moving plea that we continue to help America’s pets, the millions trapped in our nation’s unforgiving, overcrowded shelter system.

Orphans of Katrina is an adventure, a historical account, and a celebration of volunteer rescuers — and the animals we share our world with.
