Next, Matthew travels to an abandoned hospital in New Orleans, where a doctor has been living for days after the hurricane because of a promise he made—he vowed to dozens of families that he would care for their dogs and cats until he was able to get them out safely. Matthew helps the doctor keep his promise—in just a few hours, every beloved pet will have been ferried to safety in hopes of reuniting with their families. Don't we all want a doctor like that?
Matthew is committed to helping Katrina survivors. Read entries from Matthew's journal, exclusively on Oprah.com.
