‘Mutts’ Creator Brings Awareness to Animal Rescue with Katrina Cartoons

In a E&P story:

In a poignant, wordless sequence that began Monday and ends Saturday, McDonnell showed a dog named Katrina trapped on a roof in flooded New Orleans. First she looks over the watery landscape, then she howls, then she slumps on the roof in despair. Rescuers finally arrive, and Friday’s strip shows Katrina in a shelter. Saturday, the dog learns she has a home again, although the strip is ambivalent whether it will be with her old family or a new one.
