Valdosta - South Georgians are raising money to help the smallest victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Humane Society is sponsoring a relief drive for pets who were victims of the storm. They'll be at Canine Clubhouse from 10 until 2:00 Saturday.

Organizers say they've received plenty of donations of dog and cat food, now they need money. "The money will go towards medical expenses for these animals because a lot of them are coming out injured and ill, some of them have been floating in water ever since the hurricane hit," said Theresa Collins, Humane Society Director.

The Humane Society will match up to $1,000 of what the community donates. Anyone who gives $100 or more will get a free Humane Society cookbook.
