Update on Prior Item About a Florida Rescuer Headed to the Middle East
Anabelle Taub is now leaving tomorrow (Friday), for northern Israel with as much pet medication and supplies as she can carry. The veteran of post-Katrina rescue plans to work with Israeli humane groups to save animals stranded and/or injured by the war.
Pet lady: That's my role in the Miami Herald newsroom. I've been here since 1989, during which time I've had eight dogs, a ring-necked parakeet, a chicken, and a lizard named Lance. At the moment, I've got four dogs, two step-dogs, and two cockatiels. A native New Yorker, I came here from Louisville, Ky. I'm a graduate of the University of Arizona, and had a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard in 1988. I have written 233 stories containing the word 'dog' in the past 17 years.
