    The Cajun Navy is all volunteer, and have rescued thousands of people and animals since this started.

    I know a guy from Florida who took his 6 horse trailer to Louisiana after Katrina to help rescue horses. I guess he's gone back now to help with the floods.

    We had a family friend, now deceased, a real cajun, who lived in Denham Springs. He told us each time it flooded the snakes came into the houses.

    Animal rescues are now in Louisiana going to locate pets left behind. Some areas that were flooded are rural and hard to access due to post flood conditions.

    These people amaze me with their level of dedication.
