Volunteers Serving Our Community

Dear Veg Friends,

For those of you who may have just joined our ever-growing vegetarian society, I wish to share some background information with you!   The Humane Society of Louisiana formed this meat- and dairy-free group back 2007, with six members!  Besides promoting a plant-based diet, our humane society is very, very active helping animals on a number of different fronts.  We have an dynamic humane education program, a no-kill sanctuary that is home to 220 formerly abused animals, and we investigate hundreds of animal abuse complaints.  Some of this work can be quite dangerous and some of our highly trained volunteers put themselves at great risk to help animals in need.  Just a few days ago, for example, our director of field investigations, Larry Maxwell, was attacked by a 80 pound pit bull, while investigating a complaint.  Here is the story:

  

We also inform the public of atrocities that occur almost on a daily basis, like throwing live cats and kittens into moving traffic, which is reported to us several times a year:

Jeff Dorson with the Humane Society said abandoning kittens in high traffic areas has been the subject of several high-profile investigations over the ...



We rely on hundreds of volunteers to keep these programs growing and expanding.  If you would like to help, please join us at Volunteers for Animals at


We will also be hosting a special raw food preparation demo and a three-week health maintenance program on Friday, November 4th.  Details will be forthcoming in a future email.  The workshop will be led by Paul Berry, a former humane investigator or ours, whose salary topped out at $5.50/hour and who later became the CEO of Best Friends in Kanab, Utah, which grew to be, under Paul's direction,  the most successful and largest animal sanctuary in the world!  Paul has now developed a very exciting raw foods and detoxing, cleansing diet that can restore health and vigor to everyone!
Additional information and a registration form will be sent out within the next few days.

Lastly, If you would like to volunteer, participate or host your own fundraiser, please contact me at [address removed]

Sincerely,

Jeff
Proud 1st member of the New Orleans Vegetarian Society
Director, Humane Society of Louisiana
