Gary Karcher found! (Best Friends)
Thanks to the efforts of Best Friends members, Himie the Rottweiler's dad has been found!
Best Friends received a call from Gary Karcher today and he is at Camp Gruber in Braggs, Oklahoma. He is moving into some other temporary housing on Friday and he said that he’d call us back once he gets a phone number.
He is trying to get back home to Louisiana even though he knows his house is destroyed. He was offered a place in North Carolina but he said “I am very grateful, but all I really want to do is go home to Louisiana.” He needs a place for himself and his 82 year-old mother and his three dogs. His mother is temporarily staying in Houston with his brother and sister (who all had to evacuate for Rita, but are now back in Houston again). He is going to approach FEMA to see if they will provide a trailer for them in Louisiana. Other than Himie, he has two dachshunds named Pudgy and Precious. We think we may have Pudgy and Precious at Best Friends/St. Francis but we are not sure until Gary can make a positive identification – either by photo or in person. We are currently trying to figure out a way to make that happen.
When Gary heard that they were shooting dogs, he was really scared they’d shoot Himie and he’s so thankful he’s safe.
