New Orleans--The Humane Society of Louisiana recently presented its
Volunteer of the Year Award to Marla Chapotel, a teacher within the
Archdiocese of New Orleans school system.  "In addition to rescuing
many animals in distress on her own every year and paying for their
care, Marla has also helped us, with the help of her family and
friends, raise significant funds for our cruelty prevention and
investigation programs.  This year, in particular, Marla has also
donated countless hours helping our humane society meet our needs by
volunteering at our events and special gatherings," said Jeff Dorson,
Executive Director.

The Humane Society of Louisiana recently honored Marla at its awards
presentation ceremony and presented her with the group's Volunteer of
the Year Award, which was also attended by Marla's mother, Julia
Chapotel, and Dr. James Riopelle, one of the group's past recipients of
its Humanitarian of the Year Award.

Established in 1988, the Humane Society of Louisiana is one of the
state's largest animal protection and advocacy organizations with more
than seven active chapters and thousands of members.  For
