This was a great success, and I'm sure that many of the pets were up for adoption because their owners were either killed or now have much weightier concerns after the terrible tornado. But no doubt some of those pets were up for adoption simply because nobody could figure out who they belonged to.

Watch the documentary "Mine", which really shows the impossible situation that shelters were in with unidentified Katrina pets. It would convince anyone to make sure their pet is microchipped.

Yes, shelters would "lose" a lot less money on fee-free adoption than they spend on euthanasia drugs and personnel time; even gain community support by slashing the number of animals killed each year. Hope someone takes you up on it!
