  • Pets 

A message from the LASPCA:  Often, during clean up people find lost or injured animals or animals in distress that appear to be abandoned.  For their safety and the safety of the animal, we do not want people removing the animals from their locations.  Instead, we need anyone who sees an animal situation that is concerning to report it to New Orleans Humane Law and Rescue division of the Louisiana SPCA.  That can be done by calling 504-368-5191 or 311.
