60 puppies, dogs headed to new home with help of animal organizations
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) – With the help of Paws 4 Life, the North Shore Animal League America, and other shelter organizers, 60 puppies and dogs will travel to New York to meet their new families.
Without the cooperation and help of these organizers, these animals would be in danger of being euthanized.
The animals come from animal shelters in Bossier, Natchitoches, Jefferson, Tyler and Marshall.
“Our mission is to save as many animals as possible because we believe that all animals can be saved and not killed,” said Tanya Wright, president of Paws 4 Life.
Paws 4 Life is a volunteer group dedicated to saving animals. In addition to saving these animals, the organization also wanted to help people and pets who were badly affected by Hurricane Ida.
With the help of the North Shore Animal League America, the organization has received hundreds of donations for dog food, cat food, cleaning supplies, and more. The league turned the donations over to Paws 4 Life before they headed for southeast Louisiana this weekend.
“We have such good friends and family in southern Louisiana. We love these people and we want to go down and show them love and help them in any way we can, ”Wright said.
