With so many sad stories in the news, we thought you might enjoy this:
we just completed another successful transport of 37 puppies and dogs and 2 cats to Maine. These lucky animals are now in happy homes. Aren't they just adorable?
Can you please help us put another lifesaving transport on the road right away? A contribution of any size will help. The needs of homeless animals in the impoverished communities we serve are simply overwhelming. With enough funding, we could keep transports running nonstop.
The wonderful feeling of placing a pup in a loving "forever home" is priceless, and the cost of making it happen is actually pretty small. We just need about $2500, less than $100 for each life saved. These funds cover the costs of vet bills, health certificates, food, gas and travel costs.
If you haven't helped in a while, or if you can pitch in just a little
something to help, we would really appreciate your support.
We know you agree with us that these happy endings are truly worth it.

The Humane Society of Louisiana offers a variety of volunteer opportunities that can easily fit into everyone's schedule. Our group was established in New Orleans 1988, and we have a long history of advocating for the protection of animals, whether it is in the classroom, the State Capitol or in the courtroom. Our group also operates a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Tylertown, Mississippi. To encourage a healthy plant-based diet and lifestyle, our group also started the New Orleans Vegetarian Society which has more than 500 members. For more information, please visit us at meetup.com, as well.
There are any number of ways to get involved as a volunteer. Here is just a partial list:
- join our investigations department. These volunteers respond to hundreds of complaints each year by visiting households or businesses where abuse may be taking place or by working with law enforcement officials to ensure that the animal protection laws are upheld. We also have volunteer caseworkers who monitor complaints, once they have been filed with our organization. These volunteers meet throughout the year.
- join our humane education department and become one of our pet care educators! These volunteers visit schools, YMCAs, nursing homes and other venues throughout the year, educating the young and old about the need to properly care for all animals.
- join our outreach team and help us man tables and booths at different festivals and events around town.
We also encourage you to join our group as a dues-pay member. Dues
are only $20.00 for individual or $35.00 for family. Checks may be sent
to the Humane Society of Louisiana, P.O. Box 740321, New Orleans, LA
70174 or make a donation online throughout our website at www.
