Louisiana Department of Correction, Probation and Parole (Amite... by Humane Society of Louisiana) · 204 supporters. "Persace" fatally shot by probation officerPetition Update Many thanks for your support! More than 200 supporters have sighed our petition!

Jul 27, 2014Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We appreciate your support of our humane society's campaign to reform Louisiana's law enforcement agencies and deter them from shooting our family pets. We are urging enforcement agencies to implement non-lethal, defensive tactics when dealing with pets, especially dogs, whom they may encounter while performing their official duties.  In fact, the Louisiana State Police now offers a course on this very subject that is open to all post-certified, commissioned officers (those qualified to carry side arms) and one course was held two months ago.  Here is a description of the course curriculum:

Course Name: Defensive Tactics: Canine Encounters

Description: LSP, LA-SAFE and the LA Animal Welfare Commission are hosting a one-day training seminar that is intended to offer officers who come across dogs on their daily duties (including SWAT and other special teams who may be involved in search warrants, etc.) a better understanding on how to contend with canine encounters. In this day and age of social media, unjustified shootings of pets are not only bad press, it is bad business with legal ramifications that can result in criminal and/or civil penalties for the officer and his agency. See page 2 for detailed agenda (provided by instructor), to which an additional "legal section" will be added.
end of report

Lastly, we also invite you to join our organization and support our outreach programs, investigations and lobby efforts.  Besides coordinating aggressive advocacy campaigns, our humane society also operates one of the state's largest no-kill refuges, the Enoch J. Donaldson Animal Sanctuary, that is home to more than 200 animals.  To join or make a donation, kindly use this link on our website:
