From the Louisiana SPCA (New Orleans, Louisiana 70114)
With every new year comes a new list of resolutions. We’d like to weigh in on that list this year and give you a few ideas on how you can make a difference for the animals in your area.
Spay or neuter your pet! You can make a difference in pet overpopulation by having your pet spayed or neutered this year.
Adopt a pet. If you’re planning to add a pet to your home this year, adopt don’t shop. And if you know someone looking for a pet, let them know when you adopt a pet, you’re saving two lives: the one you bring home, and the one waiting for his/her turn on the adoption floor.
Train your dog. Obedience training opens the line of communication between you and your pet. Destructive behavior, inappropriate vocalization, and other common issues can be corrected. You and your pet will benefit.
Fix a feral cat. Get involved in your neighborhood this year by fixing the neighborhood cat. The only humane way to control the feral cat population in your neighborhood is to practice Trap-Neuter-Return. Learn more.
Support. You can support your local animal welfare agency in a number of ways: volunteer, donate, or collect wish list items. You can support the Louisiana SPCA’s efforts this year by becoming a member, or making a monthly donation. Caring for one animal from the time it enters our facility to the time we find a new home costs up to $120. Help us help them. Become a member today.
