Publisher Comments:

While watching the unfolding tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, Jeff Selis wondered what he could do to help. When he heard that the Oregon Humane Society had rescued animals from the area, he committed to photographing the 78 dogs and 15 cats with his 1965 Polaroid Land Camera. The result is a beautiful book of pictures and touching stories of these animal refugees.

Published by Wieden+Kennedy, all profits from the sale of Tails from Katrina go to the Oregon Humane Society, which spent nearly a month in New Orleans and Baton Rouge rescuing and providing safety to hundreds of pets left behind. The animals within these pages were brought back to the OHS shelter and put into loving foster care through the OHS volunteer network. They were not made available for adoption until after all efforts had been made to reunite them with their original owners from Louisiana.

About the Author

Jeff Selis is the author of three books, Cat Spelled Backwards Doesn't Spell God, Dog Bless America and Dog Save the Queen. He is a native of Portland, Oregon where he lives with his son, Sam, and his dog, Otis. He is single and commitment phobic.

I adopted Leo, a Hurricane Katrina dog, from the Oregon Humane Society. Months later, I stumbled on this book and discovered that Leo is on page 15! I treasure the book almost as much as Leo...The book even inspired my husband's 5th grade class to do a photography project (portraits of their pets). I highly recommend it.

I visited Portland recently to walk the 10K in the Portland Marathon. I am from Louisiana. I was overwhelmed when I went to Powell's Books and saw the book, "Tails from Katrina"! I volunteered at the main clearing center for Katrina animals in Gonzales, LA which was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. As I glanced through this marvelous book, which I bought, I was so touched. I was emotional as I saw the pictures of the animals and realized how much Portland helped in this tremendous rescue operation. I am so proud of our country becuase of the support we give to one another. Tails from Katrina is evidence of how Portland cared. Thank you so much for helping!

This book is absolutely amazing. Being from New Orleans and now living in Oregon, I was so proud that OHS went down to help the animals stranded by the flood waters. Jeff Selis did a fantastic job of capturing the faces of the animals left behind. Some sad faces, some happy but all are looking forward to a stable home. The journal from the rescuers will make you smile and cry. All driving home the point, you cannot leave your pets behind if you need to evacuate. Buy this book!
