We want to help the homeless animals of Louisiana find happy homes!
LifeSongs has teamed up with the Louisiana SPCA & Spaymart to highlight adoptable pets each week. Here’s this week’s Pets of the Week:
Betty (42714228)is a 10-year-old Standard Smooth-Haired Dachshund who is ready to be out of a shelter. She came to the Louisiana SPCA from the Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter, and she has been with us for about a month. Betty is a lap dog to the max, leaning in for affection at every possible chance she gets!
Beetlejuice (41820574) is a 2-year-old, neutered, DSH with a haunting black coat, just in time for Halloween! If you say this Beetlejuice’s name three times, he will crawl his way right into your heart. This friendly, fun guy will win you over the second you meet him!
Don’t forget, children 5 and up can now have a Birthday Pawty at the Louisiana SPCA! For more info go to www.la-spca.org/birthdaypawty or call Stephanie at 504.762.3314.

HELP HEAL A HEART
Donate to the Louisiana SPCA Heartworm Fund. This fund was established to help treat heartworm positive dogs, dogs often overlooked by potential adopters because of the expense involved with ridding these wonder hearts of parasites. Help heal a heart and give a dog a home by mailing contributions to:
Louisiana SPCA Heartworm Fund
1700 Mardi Gras Blvd.
New Orleans, LA 70114
Donate online by visiting the Louisiana SPCA website or call 504-368-5191 ext. 143.
Animal Abuse Recovery Fund
A statewide animal abuse and recovery fund has been established by the Humane Society of Louisiana in an effort to provide new funding and aid to victims of cruelty and neglect. It can cost thousands of dollars to treat neglected animals and many parishes still do not have animal control services or a humane society to deal with the issues. Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so through the Humane Society of Louisiana.
Donations can be sent to:
Humane Society of Louisiana
P.O. Box 740321
New Orleans, LA 70174
To donate online, you can visit the group’s website at target=”_blank”>www.humanela.org or call 1-888-6-HUMANE.
