Cuddle Krewe

Cute and cuddly is cool, except when it’s not throughs out. With Easter coming, the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (La-SPCA) is cautioning New Orleanians about ill planned pet rabbit adoptions. Fortunately, the agency also is providing an alternative: puppy loans.

LA-SPCA: Let Your Dog Celebrate Barkus Not NYE

Rule number one of fireworks is “Don’t blow your fingers off like a certain NFL player.” The second standard is that your pets do not like pyrotechnic displays. Dogs and cats have far better hearing than humans and those airborne booms do not go over well with them.

Today in New Orleans: 5.27.12

Today, drink for dogs, honor our Vietnam veterans, Greek out one last night, get your mind blown by the brass of MainLine, or if you’re feeling afternoon blues, go to Kajun’s for 3-sets of Little Freddie King, Guitar Lightnin’ Lee and Alabama Slim.

Back to the present:

Stray Strut Shunned

This Christmas, stray animals will not be warming themselves by the SCPA's fireplace. The NPO has announced that they will stop taking strays today. (The SCPA has been doing so for 60 years in Louisiana.) The shifts is a product of city budget cuts which have ended the SCPA's contract for Emergency Animal Services in New Orleans. No Replacement has been found. [VIA]
