Brief Update

Dear All,

Welcome to our newest volunteers - we have almost 180 members of this group.  Today, we testified in support of House Bill 470, which would require dogs to be crated in the back of open vehicles on interstate highways. http://www.legis.la.gov/Legis/ViewDocument.aspx?d=835069.  The bill passed out of the senate committee unopposed.  The bill will now be heard on the full senate floor and, if passed, will go to the Governor for his signature and then the bill becomes law in August.  Considering we receive several reports of dogs falling out of the back of pick-up trucks each year, this is encouraging news.

Also, please continue to vote for us every day until May 28th, during Dot's Diner's Charity Voting Contest.  We lead the other five charities by a slim margin of only 100 votes.  More than 100 of you still have not voted, so please take a minute to do so today by visiting this site and voting for our group:

https://www.facebook.com/DotsDinerNOLA/app_303561899745219.  Kindly make it a daily habit, so we can win the first prize of $2500!

We will also be scheduling a beer bash and volunteer meet and greet within the next few weeks.

Sincerely yours,

 

Jeff Dorson
