Swampy Paws joins forces with the Humane Society of Louisiana

I've known about this organization for awhile and recently got to know the local chapter director.  After much thought  I decided it was time to join with them in the fight to protect the animals of Livingston Parish.  There are 8 municipalities in the 642 square miles of Livingston Parish and only two have animal shelters. Unfortunately, one of them is a kill shelter. The other shelter can only take strays found inside the city limits.  So, basically there is no animal control or shelter for the homeless, abandoned, or abused animals.  The Humane Society of Louisiana hopes to correct the situation through various programs.  We are looking forward to working with them.  In addition to our rescue efforts, we will focus on education, enforcement, and legislation. 

We have volunteers who will present educational programs at schools, public libraries, and other civic or church organizations.  If you would like to have someone address your group, please let me know!
