I wish to welcome our new members and wish to remind you that our humane organization, the Humane Society of Louisiana, established this veggie society to promote the benefits of a plant-based diet and cruelty-free lifestyle. Our primary goals are to maintain the health of our followers and reduce the suffering of animals raised for consumption.
We also sometimes reach out to our veggie supporters, for specific volunteer needs. In the aftermath of Hurricane Issac, our volunteer needs have dramatically increased and we could use your collective help!
We have partnered with Rescue Ranch, the only equine rescue and recovery center in our region. Their volunteers are rescuing and rounding up starving and dazed horses and donkeys, left stranded by the Hurricane Issac's flood waters in Plaquemines Parish. This is the time to really make a difference in the lives of animals. You have the opportunity to care for, bathe and groom some of these hooved victims of Hurricane Issac - a-once-in-a-lifetime chance.
We are seeking volunteers to help us care for these horses and donkeys as they are transported back from the flooded fields and marshes. We need volunteers to clean stalls, put down bedding (shavings) and bathe some of these horses, starting at 9: 30 am tomorrow.
Here is the additional information for potential volunteers:
Please start to arrive at the rescue ranch barn between 9-9: 30 am. Volunteer Orientation begins promptly at 9: 30 am. The barn is located at 1201 Main Street, Belle Chasse. (take Hwy 23 to Ave G to Main Street). Please wear boots, gloves and long pants. Orientation lasts approximately 45 minutes. You can leave whenever you have to. Other volunteers who have completed the orientation will come throughout the day.
Please make every effort to attend! We will also need volunteers at this barn every day for the next two weeks. Please email me at [address removed] or call me at[masked] to RSVP.
