I couldn’t imagine having to give up cat, Rags because I was unable to feed her. I couldn’t imagine being a parent and having to take my child’s best friend away cause you needed to feed the family first. So I called my next door neighbor, Emily and asked if she wanted to join me in raising monies to purchase food.
There are two fishing communities south of New Orleans, St. Bernard Parish on the east side of the Mississippi River and Plaquemines Parish on the west side. I called each SPCA and was thankful to learn that both were no-kill facilities. Both were near full capacity and would be thankful for the donation. They would also notify local families that food was available for pickup.
