Louisiana Dogs Transferred to AVHS
On Monday, August 29th, Ark-Valley Humane Society welcomed Reggie, Suki, Kirby and Carolyna; four dogs transferred to us from a shelter in Louisiana. As many of you know, Louisiana has been hit hard in the past weeks with terrible floods ruining buildings and crushing homes. This particular shelter made a plea to shelters across the country, asking for help emptying their current cat and dog population to make way for the pets and their families affected by this terrible tragedy.
Thanks to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary network, we got word of this and wanted to help. You see, it’s very important to our organization to help out other animal shelters when we can – create and advancing partnerships. Jonathan, our Executive Director reached out to this shelter’s Executive Director and the plans were made for the transfer to happen.
Thanks to one of their dedicated volunteers, the dogs arrived safe and sound on Monday. We feel so fortunate to be in a position to help out this shelter and couldn’t do it without your help. Through both monetary and supplies donations, your time volunteering, and everything in between, we are able to come together and help those around us, like our friends in Louisiana.
