South Florida Woman Wants to Save the Dogs of War

Anabelle Taub, a Miami real-estate agent who spent a month rescuing animals in New Orleans after Katrina, is headed to northern Israel to save animals displaced and abandoned because of the fighting.

Friends say that Taub, who volunteers with Adopt A Stray and used to be a paramedic, plans to leave Wednesday or Thursday, and is in dire need of financial donations and supplies like bowls, collars, leashes, medicines, food.

She plans to live on a kibbutz for a month and help Israeli rescuers take animals to shelters in safer parts of the country.
