'Yappy Hour' at the Mid-City Bulldog!
Dear All, Please join us this Thursday, June 21st and enjoy some adult refreshments at Mid City Bulldog. Drop in anytime between 5 - 8 pm and help us raise needed funds for our humane organization. We've been helping different law enforcement agencies all week, starting with helping witnesses to report a neighbor who they observed slamming a kitten to the ground (http://www.fox8live.com/story/38432609/graphic-image-man-cited-after-being-accused-of-slamming-kitten-into-ground-killing-it) to just yesterday helping with the seizure of multiple starving horses in Tylertown, Mississippi. Our charity will receive a percentage of all drinks sold during 'Yappy Hour, , so please come out and support a great cause. Great raffle items will also be available!

What we're about

Dear Friends,

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.

humanela.org.

Sincerely yours,

Jeff Dorson

Director, Humane Society of Louisiana
