Woods Animal Sanctuary (Roseland, LA) is required by Animal Control
services to place a minimum of 10 dogs per month (the exact number
changes every month, but it is definitely AT LEAST 10), in order to
lower the number of pets at the shelter to a maximum of 110. Every month Animal Control shows up with trucks,
counts the dogs on site, ready to take back with them dogs over that
month's limit. Raven Woods is struggling to comply with these
requirements and not have to surrender any dogs to animal control.
Please help if you can.
Dogs are usually up to
date on their shots and on heartworm prevention. Some of them are
already altered. There is no pull fee for reputable no-kill rescues.
Taking only one dog will help match Animal Control's demands and definitely save one life!
Woods is facing another urgent problem with DEQ requiring a new septic
system to be put in place. This will cost tens of thousands of dollars.
If not, the shelter is at risk of being permanently shut down, Then what will happen to all the pets there? Donations (tax-deductible) are urgently needed to help keep Raven Woods open and the dogs there alive.

Here is a list of the Raven Woods dogs already on Petfinder but there are many, many more NOT listed. If you would like to help or to ask what other kind of dogs are available, please contact Adoption Coordinator Leila Baldridge: Phone: 601-831-0779 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
This is more info from Leila.
"All dogs we offer for adoption are current on
vaccinations--if anyone that is chosen for adoption is coming due for
vax soon we go ahead and give the shots. Everyone is on either Heartgard
or Ivomec (which is the active ingredient in Heartgard) for hw
prevention--they are put on it as soon as they arrive unless some health
problem prohibits it.
We try to get all females spayed as soon as possible
after arrival. Many of the males are not yet neutered due to financial
constraints, but we either neuter prior to adoption or make arrangements
for the adopter/receiving rescue to have it done.
There is definitely no pull fee for
reputable no kill rescues.We do want to be sure they are checked out to
be sure our babies are going to good places. If we transport, we would
greatly appreciate a tax deductible donation for gasoline but that is
negotiable. We have personally made transports to TX, AZ, PA, NY, TN,
and NC and it is getting difficult to finance this, especially since we
have to come up with money for the septic system.
Thanks to all of you for your help!"
