Clear The Shelters

Although Clear The Shelters was a month-long event this year, August 29 was our day for fee-waived adoptions.  As we opened our gates, over 40 cars rolled down our lane.  We started the day with 62 animals available for adoption – we adopted 61.  Our “last man standing” was Pepper the pig, who got adopted the next day.  We thank Hill’s Science Diet and NBC for helping to make the event such a huge success.

Shelters Helping Shelters

While Hurricane Laura slammed into our neighbors to the west, shelters around the country got ready to offer assistance where needed.  Louisiana SPCA started emptying their shelters in order to have space to assist with animals displaced by the storm.   As partner, we prepared to take in 30 of their adoptable dogs, some of whom will be on the adoption floor here as soon as Wednesday, September 2.
