Hey, Who Dats!
HSL is going head to head with the Humane Society of Indianapolis,
as the Saints and Colts head to the Super Bowl!
'Vote' now with your donation and show your support for the home team!
Humane Society 'Top Dogs' from Indy, New Orleans
Square Off Before the Big Game
Jeff Dorson, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Louisiana (New Orleans) visited the Humane Society of Indianapolis and met with its CEO, John Aleshire, on Monday, February 1st to discuss general shelter operations and protocol. Discussions quickly turned to the larger question of which team would win Super Bowl XLIV. To underscore the rivalry, Aleshire gave Dorson a present of a package of sugar cookies, decorated with the Colts logos. To show his gratitude, Dorson has given Aleshire a copy of the DVDThe Crying Game, to remind him that the outcome of Sunday's game will probably disappoint him and his staff.

The contest has already divided family loyalties within the Dorson family, which, like the Manning family, has ties to both New Orleans and Indianapolis. Having been born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana, Jeff Dorson moved to New Orleans in 1988, where he started the Humane Society of Louisiana and remains as its Executive Director. Roland Dorson, Jeff's brother, is the Chairman of the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, a business acquaintance of Mr. Aleshire, and is rumored to have already pledged a contribution to the Humane Society of Indianapolis.
The Super 'Shelter Bowl'
The growing rivalry resulted in the Super 'Shelter Bowl' which pits the two humane societies against each other in a race to raise the most funds for the 'home team'. The contest is simple: society supporters and others wishing to show support for their favorite football team can make a donation to either humane society on their websites or by sending in a contribution by mail. (To count in the tally of the Super Shelter Bowl, donations sent by mail must be received (or postmarked) no later than Saturday, February 14th.)
The Humane Society of Louisiana, founded in New Orleans in 1988, is one of the state's largest animal protection agencies. The group's shelter was destroyed by Katrina, and they are still seeking funding to replace it. Their web site is www.HumaneLA.org and their mailing address is Humane Society of Louisiana, PO Box 740321, New Orleans, LA 70174. The Humane Society of Indianapolis can be reached at www.indyhumane.org or at Humane Society of Indianapolis, 7929 N. Michigan Road, Indianapolis, IN 46268.

Fingers crossed... The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra is nominated in the Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album category for Book One! Derek (my brother and one of our Team Members) is a member of NOJO.
So exciting! So, perhaps your Dog Walker tomorrow will be a 2010 Grammy Award winning Dog Walker. We shall see!
