UPDATED: Urgent: Pets in Need of Foster in New Orleans
UPDATE, added August 21, 2013: All 4 pets have foster care lined up. Thank you to everyone who shared.
Reader Melissa and her family are heading for a homeless shelter. She is hoping to find immediate foster homes for her 4 pets as the shelter will not allow them. She posted her story on Facebook and has given me permission to post her contact info here. If you can offer any assistance, please call Melissa at (225)567-5057 or e-mail her. If you can’t help out yourself, please share with your animal loving friends so we can find care for these 4 pets. Melissa wants to stress that her hope is to be in a position to reclaim all 4 pets as soon as possible as they are beloved family members.
The following photos and captions are all taken from Facebook.
“Sugar is a 4 year old spayed female. She is very obedient and well behaved. She is housetrained, crate trained, and gets along with cats, other dogs, small children, and people of all shapes sizes and ages. She is microchipped.”
“Tasha is a 13 year old spayed female. She was originally rescued after Hurricane Katrina. She is very quiet and a little shy, but very sweet. She has lived in lots of different places and been around a lot of different people. She gets along with cats, other dogs, and small children as well, and is perfectly housetrained and also crate trained. She is very well mannered and calm and just likes to have a little spot to rest.”
“Mr. Towel is a 3 year old neutered male who is very calm and easy to care for in the house and gets along with other cats, dogs, and small kids. He is microchipped.”
“Kitty Kumquats is a 5 year old spayed female. She gets along with other cats, dogs, and small kids. She is very well behaved and easy to care for. She is microchipped.”
I am keeping a good thought for you Melissa, and for your entire (human and pet) family.
