Dangerous Dogs, Feral Cats Get Attention From New Orleans City Council


According to New Orleans City Councillor Susan Guidry, it's time for the feral and the furry to get equal protection under the law. The District A Councilwoman is proposing a slate of changes to the city's pet protection laws that would "bring our city laws for pet care and control in line with modern practices, and will allow the LA-SPCA to carry out its animal control duties in a more effective and efficient manner," Guidry said.


Tomorrow: Eat Out in New Orleans, Help Pets


To many a diner's chagrin, local laws require New Orleanians to leave their pets at home when eating out at most local establishments. But two of the city's chief pre-occupations will finally come together on Thursday, June 14, when dozens of restaurants will donate proceeds to the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Fully 40 dining establishments are set to participate in Pause 4 Dinner, with each donating 20 percent of the night's proceeds to the organization, and, in turn, animal welfare. Check out the list of participating restaurants:
