Katrina left tens of thousands of pets homeless, and some of them will be available for adoption at El Dorado County Animal Shelter after the project is completed in November.
Plans call for an expansion of the shelter by 700 square feet (65 square meters), as well as improved kennels and additional parking.
Officials said one animal at a time will be brought to the facility from shelters on the Gulf Coast. When one pet is adopted, another will be sent to the shelter.
"Animal groups across the nation have contacted Comic Relief, but I'd rather see the funds work in my own community," said Zmuda. "My house is five minutes from here."
Most EU countries are allied with US-dominated NATO - a killing machine involved in smashing one sovereign state after another. It's responsible for vast destruction, millions of casualties, and appalling human misery from the rape of Yugoslavia and post-9/11 US-led wars of aggression - based on Big Lies and deception.
