From Mississippi to Maine Video

In late May, members of the Bucks Mont Katrina Animal Center Project, along with volunteers from the Warrington-based Animal Lifeline, partnered to coordinate a dog adoption transport from Waveland, Mississippi to Kennebunk, Maine.  Since the hurricane, there has been a surge of displaced pets and an ever-increasing stray population.   While the BMKACP is actively raising funds for the much-needed animal center, this transport program is an opportunity to offer immediate help.  With this first transport, 31 dogs, including 22 puppies, were rescued, as students ranging from kindergarten to college, from Mississippi to Bucks County to Maine were involved.  While many groups have left the Gulf region, our efforts are being reenergized as the next generation enthusiastically steps forward to help.

Project Updates

Bucks Mont Katrina Project keeps a promise

On a beautiful Mississippi day, approximately 200 Hancock County residents and visitors dedicated the Hancock County Food Pantry, the second building project of the BMKP. To kick off the celebration, children from the Hancock County Child Development Center -- another BMKP effort -- delivered donated food items as the crowd cheered and applauded.
