What's the best way to help the New Orleans birds when we're there next week?

Some friends and I will be in New Orleans from June 11-17th for a conference, and were wondering if there's any good way to help out with the injured birds then. It sounds like the shore work is off-limits due to toxicity, so we're fine contributing in any way we can (coffee/hugs/protests?). What are some good organizations to contact for this, since we'll only be available for a short amount of time (1 full day on that Wednesday perhaps, or maybe some afternoons of other days)? If it matters, we'll be car-free (though cab-savvy) and situated near the convention center. Thanks!

How do I volunteer for Katrina recovery efforts?

The Red Cross requires a three-week hitch, getting me back two days too late for my calendar. FEMA doesn't want help. I'm told that there are organizations across the country who are looking for volunteers to help with all manner of aid for Katrina victims. I just need a floor to sleep on and three squares, and I'll work 18 hours days feeding dogs or helping people fill out paperwork or cook food or whatever. Can anybody point me to some such organizations?
