Some friends of Gulf Coast Doberman Rescue SWAM down
Marango St. which is off St. Charles St. in downtown New Orleans; the water
was up to their necks. They swam around floating bodies that were tied
together, in raw sewage, they went on relentlessly. They swam to an apartment
building and then broke down a door they went to an upstairs apartment
and broke another door. On the threshold waiting were three very happy
Dobermans! Gulf Coast Dobermans!
They took one of the doors they had broken down and put the Dobes on
it and floated them out. The door started sinking so they carried one and
put the other 2 on their backs. They came to a Wildlife and Fisheries boat
who told them they could get in the boat but the Dobes could not. The GCDR
rescuers responded "We swam in and we will swim out." Then
the Wildlife and Fisheries took all of them in the boat. The GCDR rescuers
then went to the city of Metarie where they broke down a door in a house
and rescued a Lab mix, a cat and a yellow canary!
The three Dobes are now bathed and they are trying to get
word to the owners that they are fine.
To our rescuers in the field stay safe.
