THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF LOUISIANA LAUNCHES NEW PUPPY TRANSPORT PROJECT

New "transPUPtation" Vehicle Safely Transports Adopted Pets to their New Homes

 

(New Orleans, LA) ─ The Humane Society of Louisiana today launched a special fundraising campaign for a new and uniquely-designed mobile "transPUPtation" vehicle to transport adopted pets to their new homes. The new fundraising campaign is called the Puppy Transport Project.

Through a partnership with First Bank and Trust, the Humane Society is now collecting private financial contributions at all New Orleans area branches  and online at www.humaneLA.org in order  to purchase the special Adoption Van.

Humane Society officials say stray puppies are more likely to be euthanized in Louisiana because there is a lack of welcoming homes for the pets as well as a lack of local shelter space. "Our new transPUPtation vehicle will allow us to bring these adorable animals to more affluent areas of the country where their humane societies and shelters are better funded," said Jeff Dorson, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Louisiana.

State law requires that the animals can only be kept for a few days because it is so difficult to provide quarantine for puppies for extended periods of time. Sending the dogs to other areas also cuts down on local costs such as vaccinations and sterilizations which are administered to the animals in their new out-of-state shelters.

The Puppy Transport Project helps local animals find loving homes with volunteers driving the adopted pets to loving homes all along the east Coast. Several large donors have already stepped up to the plate, but more donations are needed to put the transPUPtation van on the road.

"There is a much better choice than to euthanize these cute puppies, and that is to take them to the open arms of our neighbors to the East where they will be loved for the rest of their lives," said Gary Blossman, president of First Bank and Trust.

Contributions to the "transPUPtation" vehicle campaign can be made with any teller at any of the 13 First Bank and Trust Branches throughout Southeast Louisiana.

The Humane Society of Louisiana is privately funded and has a statewide mission, allowing it to work across parish lines to rescue the most adoptable homeless pets in need throughout our state.
