ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - The Heart of Louisiana Humane Society is in need of forever homes for more than 100 dogs, and close to 50 cats.
The Winnfield Society encourages the community to adopt not shop, to help them during the extremely busy puppy and kitten season.
They rescue animals across the region. They look for new homes for the pets and get medical treatment for any that are sick.
All adoptable animals are up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and spayed or neutered.
The team usually holds adoptions at the Petco in Alexandria on the second and fourth Saturday of every month.
Society president Caitlyn Hemphill said they are also looking for more fosters. The busy season is currently taking up all available space for the volunteer based organization. They strive to take in any animal that needs help.
"There are not many of us, not for the amount of animals," Hemphill said. "We need more volunteers so bad and people to donate, and help us take care of these animals. We didn't put them in the position that they are in, but we do need help to be able to save them. We always need dog food, cat food, supplies, as well as help with our vet bills."
They with be back at Petco on Sunday, August 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. After that the next adoption event will be held in two weeks.
