I have been working with Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) a non profit 501(c)(3), no-kill animal organization located in Belle Chasse, LA to establish/stock a "food bank" to support those fisher families that have been surrendering pets at an alarming pace post BP leak. Our hope is that if pet owners have food, medication and supplies, they will have the basic needs taken care of and not have the financial pressure to surrender.
Last week, we started a food and supplies drive and have had great support thus far! We even managed to get a little COLD HARD CASH! The money that has been given has helped me pay for Frontline and some other medications (Glucosamine/Chondritin, Otomax, Antihistamine) We have also collected cleaning supplies (paper towels, bleach, etc.) for the shelter that is now at maximum capacity.
If you have anything you can donate (anything at all...Old leash, collar... we will take it! Roll of paper towels... we will take it!) Jessica, Sawyer, Pamela, Bradley, Katie, Calli, Derek and I will gladly stop by to pick up whatever or you can drop off here... 3101 Prytania Street. Our next stock trip is on Friday.
Thanks for your consideration.
