ANIMAL VICTIMS OF LOUISIANA’S GREAT FLOOD STILL NEED OUR HELP (OCTOBER 5, 2016)
We’ve worked tirelessly to save animals since our state’s devastating recent floods. Media attention and public interest in this story has waned, but help is still urgently needed, and we’re still making a difference on the ground. But more help is needed.
“A disaster of this magnitude creates hardships for animals and their families which take months – not weeks – to adequately address,” says Humane Society of Louisiana founder and Executive Director, Jeff Dorson. “We’ve utilized every contribution made for flood relief, and our volunteers have logged thousands of hours, but much work remains to be done.”

WANT TO HELP? DONATE HERE!!
Founded in New Orleans in 1988, the Humane Society of Louisiana leads the fight against cruelty to animals statewide. Our effective grassroots charity has aided, rescued and defended hundreds of thousands of animals. With a small, dedicated staff and hundreds of hard working volunteers, we passionately work to defend and protect all animals in need. We are not an affiliate of any larger group and we rely solely on private donations for support.
Because we are coordinating such a huge relief effort in Livingston parish and are helping groups around the state get needed supplies, monetary contributions (using the link above) are preferred at this time. Checks and gift cards may also be sent by mail to Humane Society of Louisiana, PO Box 740321, New Orleans, LA 70174.
In addition to our flood relief efforts, we have more than 50 homeless flood animals in need of medical care, and transport to loving new homes. We will happily accept any donations to support our shelter at the Enoch J. Donaldson Animal Sanctuary, 31058 Hwy 1055, Mt. Hermon, LA 70450
