Consequences of Underfunded Animal Control: Uptick in Injured Animals at LA/SPCA
"While Animal Control Services are suspended, stray dogs are still roaming throughout New Orleans posing a danger to themselves and the community at large. Calls regarding injured animals have increased by 1,000% since October 1st. The City of New Orleans has been relying on NOPD to perform daily Animal Control services, obviously this is not happening." explains LA/SPCA CEO, Ana Zorrilla. "These animals are being injured and killed because of the City's inadequate funding for services that are needed all year long. This is an inhumane way for these animals to live and ultimately die."Charlie's prognosis is not good. The five-day stray hold required by city ordinance is complete. While the LA/SPCA has provided pain medication during his stay, the LA/SPCA does not have the resources to perform orthopedic surgery or have an available foster home should surgery be possible. The LA/SPCA is asking for help to provide care for the increasing number of severely injured animals, like Charlie, arriving at the shelter. To become a foster home for an injured animal or make a contribution, please contact the LA/SPCA at 368-5191 or online at la-spca.org
