8 State Kate Fund

Jenny started writing 8 State Hurricane Kate: The Journey and Legacy of a Katrina Cattle Dog because she didn’t want Kate to be forgotten. She also wanted to tell the stories of the Katrina survivors, the animals and people that Kate and Jenny met on their journey. Along the way, Jenny was inspired to continue writing because she hoped the book would help her find Kate’s original family. As the network grew, the book became something larger, an opportunity to give something back, when the 8 State Kate Fund was born. A portion of book proceeds is donated to provide financial relief for animals in desperate situations.

In August of 2010, as the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approached, 8 State Kate Fund donations from book proceeds exceeded $5,000, with a donation to Animal Rescue New Orleans. Thank you to all who have supported this effort by purchasing 8 State Hurricane Kate.
