Heads up Team!


Filming Notification: Production A (2507 Prytania) March 26-30


Dear Neighbors,
We are preparing to film a major motion picture in and around the New Orleans area over the next few months. 
We are exceedingly grateful to have the opportunity to showcase the many beautifully inimitable locations that New Orleans has to offer and to share her magical grace and charm.
With the cooperation of The City Of New Orleans Office of Film and Television and The Garden District Association; we have been approved for changes to our previous shooting schedule due to weather and other considerations.
On Monday, March 26th we will begin filming at 2507 Prytania Street between 1st and 2nd Streets and will conclude photography on Friday, March 30th. The majority of our work will be day-interior but there are a few night time exterior scenes, in which case, with the assistance of the N.O.P.D., we will implement a street closure/traffic diversion plan on Prytania Street between 1st and 3rd Streets and on 2nd Street between St. Charles and Coliseum Streets on Thursday, March 29th with the possibility of an additional night of exterior filming on Friday the 30th. We will have intermittent traffic control, otherwise, as needed for sound. If you reside within the perimeter of our road closure, please contact Matt McLellan for a resident card for your automobile so that we may assist you through our barricades to your driveway, if you have not yet received one. Please be aware that, due to security concerns, these resident cards are non-transferable and are only intended to allow you access to your driveway and are not for our permitted on street NO PARKING zones.
In order to alleviate congestion and to minimize our eventual footprint in the neighborhood, we have paid to permit NO PARKING signs for what may initially seem an excessive amount of street parking. Rest assured that once our vital equipment is in place and the exterior shots are completed we will release much of the on street parking back to the neighborhood.
 Please take note of the following NO PARKING ZONES:
March 22nd through April 4th
2500 block of Prytania (Lakeside)
1500 block of 2nd (Both sides)
March 22nd through March 31st2400 and 2500 blocks of Prytania (Both sides)
1400 and 1500 blocks of 2nd (Both sides).
March 25th through March 31st 
2400, 2500, 2600 blocks of Prytania (Both sides)
2700 block of Prytania (Downtown, Lakeside)
1400, 1500 blocks of 1st and 2nd (Both sides)

1400 block of 3rd (Both sides of lakeside ½ block)
1500 block of 4th (Uptown side of river ½ block)

Sweet baby boy needs a home!


I received this email today from someone helping to find a home for this little bug bug.  So cute...  


~

This sweet little guy was found wandering around Cottonport.
He appears to be ~ 3-4 months old and will probably be a medium sized dog when fully grown. He loves to snuggle and gets along great with other dogs and cats.
He comes when called and is almost completely house-trained.
Looking for a nice home where he will be a mostly inside dog.

Please pass along if you know of anyone who may be interested in adopting him.

If interested in meeting or adopting him, contact:

These two little ones need a home...

St. Martin Parish A.C. is so full they are keeping these 2 little ones in their office.  They are desperate to move them into rescue.  Help if you can.  Their phone #is 337/394-1220.  

Good Morning New Orleans!

Dear Xaiver:

Thanks so much for your feedback regarding the locks for the car.  I am really going to try to get more videos on the blog for you.  M&S always look like they need treats!  We love them so much... just like we love your Aunt D.

Thank you for reading the blog and I hope the next time you come to visit, I can actually meet you.

Have a great tomorrow and again, thanks for following us!

Beautiful!

What a day... guess we should enjoy it!  

Sweet baby needs a home...


Voodoo in New Orleans needs loving home
About me: I'm a shy, quiet, loving 4 year old lady. I love high places, playing with paper,
the smell of peppermint, & being sung to. I really like windows, and looking outside at the world,
although I never want to go outside...too scary!

I would really like to be an only child but can get along with almost anyone. My secret love is my
chihuahua sister, but she snaps at my face & hurts my feelings. Even so, I can live with other small dogs if they won't hurt me.

Thanks so much for your help!

As you may already know, it takes me a VERY long time to bring a Team Member into our family.  I finally found a wonderful fit.   Please help us welcome Erin....  (Please forgive the format... I just could not fix it?!)
  

Hello New Orleans Pet Care Clients! My name is Erin
and I'm excited to join this wonderful team. First let me
tell you a little bit about myself, I was born and raised in Northern
New Jersey. While I love NJ and my family, I left my spray tan and
thick Jersey accent behind to move to New Orleans to study at Tulane.
After the initial culture shock, I fell hard for New Orleans. I've
gone back to NJ several times, but I always come back to New Orleans.
I studied Anthropology at Tulane, and I'm going to continue my studies
there in the fall.

I share my home with Murphy, a 10 year old mixed breed dog, and Shango
and Zoe, 12 and 10 year old black cats. Murphy and Shango are my
special needs animals, they always like to keep me on my toes with
some major medical crisis. Murphy is my bionic dog, having had a hip
replacement almost 7 years ago. For a 10 year old dog who's body is an
orthopedic nightmare, he is doing wonderfully.  Due to Murphy and
Shango's needs, I have a special interest in the medical needs of dogs
and cats, complementary and alternative health, and nutrition. I
trained Murphy in competition obedience and some agility, but due to
his orthopedic issues we never competed. After Murphy was fully
trained, I opened up my home to foster dogs for a local rescue group
for more than a few years. Many of these dogs' medical and social
needs were neglected, and it was a great joy to help these dogs on
their journey to becoming someone's healthy and well adjusted
companion. I look forward to fostering again sometime in the future.
Right now I'm excited to work with New Orleans Pet Care and all of
their wonderful clients and babies. Rest assured that I will give your
pets the same obsessive love and attention that I give my own, I look
forward to working with y'all.

Heads up y'all!

Sweet baby needs a home...

Subject: (Baton Rouge) 10 wk Yellow Lab crying..

Hi All,

Just a few hours ago, this poor baby was found in a small, feces and urine
ridden cage, living outside, all alone, and crying non stop for help. Thank
God he was rescued in time since he wouldn't have lasted much longer.

His rescuer brought him home, cleaned him up, and now, you can actually see
how adorable he is. The irritation and burns on his little belly are from
lying in his own urine.

Tonight he his safe, clean, warm, and loved. Now, we need to find this baby
a forever loving home.

Please forward, and contact Lori at Northside Humane for this now, lucky
little one. Thanks-
