I received this email earlier today and wanted to share these great results with everyone. What a great effort to support the LA SPCA Heartworm Fund. Every dollar counts!
"What a great day! The weather was PERFECT and we had great crowds all day! Since we charged a voluntary admission fee this time, we were able to get a pretty accurate count of around 700 people (and probably about 400 dogs)! And 32 dogs got a bath…!
This Bark Market raised $3,726 for the LA-SPCA heartworm fund! Two dogs were adopted and one went into a foster home. There were fewer adoptions than October, but we raised a lot more money! Thanks to all who volunteered, participated, donated and especially to those who washed the dogs!
The next Bark Market is October 17, and we are beginning early to try and nail down some larger sponsors to pay for more advertising, as well as to nail down the microchips and a vet - who we may have to just hire for the day to do the chipping - since the free microchipping fell through time at the last moment.
We’ll be in touch again this summer for the October event, and if you know anyone else who would like to participate or donate, please have them contact us.

My muse... Remy

New Orleans Pet Care - Lagniappe
A few years ago, one of my team members suggested that we add a permanent blog to our web site. As you may know, we do have an interactive Emergency Page that we use during Hurricane Season if necessary.
This sounded like a fantastic way to share information, ideas, photographs, stories, etc!
I started working on it just before Remy was diagnosed with cancer... and on March 27, 2008 (two months after he died) I started working on it again.
Nicole Douget Owner & Operator New Orleans Pet Care
I love this company with all that I have... And we give it our all. This is my passion, not my hobby... Remy's legacy leads me to continue our work here... not only with excellent pet care but it also affords me the opportunity to support the rescue/transport organizations that are so important to me. We will continue to differentiate ourselves by making sure we have a full team... ready to go everyday. We will never take vacation, we are 24/7, 365 days... we will be there when you can't. We love them like you love them. We always have and we always will!
