  • 1. The best most caring staff I've ever dealt with!

    by: wildchildsmom

    I have personally adopted 2 cats from this shelter via their placements at PetSmart in Slidell, LA. I had my first experience with them in October 2004 when I adopted Princess. Princess after a few days of being here stopped eating and playing and was very lethargic. I kept in contact with Miss Maria and she paid for half of the vet bill for Princess's visit. There were multiple tests that had to be run and it was revealed that she had Liver failure. The vet placed her on liver pills, anti-biotics and prescription food that I fed her with a syringe for 2 months. (Science Diet a/D). He gave her a 20% chance of living. Well, here it is 2009 and we've had her over 5 years now! She's fat and happy! Thank you Miss Maria for having faith in our girl and helping us save her life! Our second experience was in November of 2007 when we adopted "Cisco" who we now call Puddin Pie/Puddie. They had had many callers for this beautiful little seal point Siamese/Himalayan mix and when I walked up to him he put his scent on me. Miss Maria allowed me to adopt him because she knew I was a good mommy and he would have a forever home! That he does! Puddie had ear mites and ring worm when I got him and Miss Maria gave me some ear mite medicine for him and I took him to see our vet, Dr. Lisa Johnston for the ringworm test. It came back positive but by that time I had already been treating him for several days and it was completely gone! Thanks Miss Maria for doing so much with so little! If I'm ever looking for another kitty...I'll be sure and adopt one of yours!

    Pros

  • 3. Pretty Dog Gone Fantastic - My Local Shelter

    by: bayoudogs

    I have seen this shelter improve annually. When I first met them they did very little s/n before adoption and minimal vaccination. Now everything is s/n before going home. They have started a low cost s/n program that has 'fixed' almost 7,000 local animals in the last 2 years on a shoestring budget. They also give all the proper shots and tests for animals based on age and species. They have 5 employees to handle almost 6000 animals each year. Volunteers are always being looked for as they have about 6 dedicated volunteers helping them. You can find the volunteers most Sundays at PetSmart in Slidell trying to find homes for the shelter dogs. The cats are always there.

    Pros

    Staff cares about the animals and stretches their money a long way

    Cons

    The shelter has to run on very little money
