Dear Friends and Volunteers,
Almost each week we receive disturbing complaints about the mistreatment of animals, especially horses, like the Quarter horse pictured above, who was abandoned near Ville Platte. Several weeks ago, we worked with the chief of police in Lake Providence, a small town in East Carroll Parish, to administer aid to 10 malnourished horses and just last weekend we worked closely with the sheriff and district attorney's office in Ayovelles Parish to have a city council member arrested for neglecting his three horses. After Councilman Jordan's arrest, we took possession of three of his horses.
All of these investigations and the seizures and rehabilitation of neglected animals take enormous resources, and it is straining our budget to keep up. If you would like to help us give aid to these stricken animals, there are three concrete steps you can take today:
1. Become a dues-paying member. Join us online at http://www.humanela.org/donate.htm or send in your $20/year dues to HSL, P.O. Box[masked], New Orleans, LA 70174
2. Hold your own lemonade stand, bake sale or dog wash and contribute the proceeds to our group! Contact me at [address removed] to make the necessary arrangements.
3. Attend our upcoming band benefit at One-Eyed Jacks, 615 Toulouse St, New Orleans, on Saturday, June 16th from 10 pm on. Please help us promote this event on your social networking sites or distribute fliers for us. Contact me if you would like fliers sent to you.
