Jeff, Larry, & others,
I apologize if I prematurely posted an event without permission first. I guess every group has there own way of doing things and I wasn't familiar with yours. I support both LA-SPCA and the Humane Society's efforts in doing the right thing for our furry friends. I did not know that the Volunteers for Animals group was specifically for the Humane Society. I did not mean to step on anyone's toes, I was just trying to help the animals. Larry apparentely the event has been removed because it is not a Humane Society event, so it should not conflict with your workshop. Below are Jeff's responses to me for the event:
Jeff changed the venue for "Dog wash."
Removed location: Whole Foods Market
5600 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA
"You really didn't follow the proper protocol in announcing
this dog wash. Did you organize it or are you just assisting?
I am organizing the event. I do not work for either the SPCA or the Humane Society. I work as a financial adviser with Merrill Lynch. I have and will continue to organize, contribute, and volunteer my time to any and all animal causes both in Louisiana and Georgia (moved from Georgia a year ago). I was not looking for any help in organizing the event or donations from the group, as I have done all of that. I did however want to use the "Volunteers for Animals" page to promote the event and see if members wanted to donate their time and/or have their dog washed. The event will be at Whole Foods Uptown, on Sat. Sept. 24th from 10-4. Vets, trainers, groomers, and kid games will all be there to help our furry friends. I look forward to helping the Humane Society and other pet organizations in future events.

The meetup group, Volunteers for Animals, is the support group for the Humane Society of
Louisiana. While we always try and help other humane groups, our primary and single focus is to raise funds for the Humane Society of Louisiana, which does not receive any federal, state or city funding. The LaSPCA, on the other hand, receives 1.9 million in tax dollars each year from the city of New Orleans on a contractual basis. This meetup group tries to raise funds and provide volunteer support that will assist our humane activities and our no-kill facility in Tylertown, Mississippi, which houses more than 200 formerly abused and neglected. Also, as a courtesy members should always get permission from me or another group administrator before posting any announcements.
