"OH YOU DIRTY DOG" Dog Wash Fundraiser Oct. 11, 2009

Two New Orleans area canine rescue groups, Louisiana Boxer Rescue and Gulf Coast Doberman Rescue, Inc. have teamed together to hold a Dog wash fundraiser. "Oh You Dirty Dog" as the water and shampoo filled event has been dubbed. This wet and wild event will be held on Sunday, October 11, 2009 in the parking lot of Abadie Animal Hospital, located in Harahan, LA. They have sent up a howling round of thanks to Dr. Scott G. Abadie, DVM for his generous offer to use his property for event.
These non profit rescue groups rely on each other many times to help transport dogs from local area animal welfare shelters toward a common goal of rescuing, rehabilitating, providing food, shelter and medical care for abandoned, abused, neglected and sadly too often in this sad economy, owner surrendered dogs. The mission of these groups, run strictly by volunteers is to find new permanent homes for the dogs of their chosen breed. They work with local animal shelters and the LASPCA, joining in their efforts to educate the community about responsible dog ownership.
So Come one, come all our furry four pawed friends (owners welcome on a leash) and get squeaky clean for a good cause! Tell your friends! Make it a family event! It's good clean fun! Print out the full color poster  to help them spread the word. What better way to spend a hot fall day!

Dog Cruelty Cases

FOUR more animal cruelty cases of abused Boxers! When does it stop? Are the people committing these crimes against animals being punished?

First there is Chelsea, she was rescued from a shelter in West Monroe Louisiana by a dear friend of Louisiana Boxer Rescue. After making a ten hour round trip in a horrific storm, Chelsea was finally safe and sound in the care of LABR. Chelsea was seen being thrown out of a car, discarded like trash, and was taken to a shelter. In true Boxer fashion, after all she's been through, she still has a sweet personality and wags her little nub when shown attention. You would think she would be fearful of people after what has happened to her but she just wants someone to love her!

Do you have room in your heart and home for this pretty girl? She will happily repay you with doggy kisses forever!

Next are Sir Walter and Ms. Penny who were taken into the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter of Louisiana (shown below) as cruelty cases. Set to be euthanized Louisiana Boxer Rescue volunteers stepped in to save the day! Bathed, fed and given a comfy place to sleep, they are on the road to recovery. They will receive the medical attention necessary for them to heal. The scars left behind from animal cruelty are often deeper on the inside than physically.

Then we have "Popcorn", suitably named because of her bubbly personality and color. This young, emaciated sweet boxer girl was surrendered to the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter by her owner. The woman claimed she was moving! Popcorn is quiet, a little hand shy, no doubt from abuse, but very docile and submissive. She looks to have had several litters. After her medical needs are met and we have nursed her back to health, she will be ready for a new home! She will make someone a lovely addition to the family.

Would you like to sponsor one of these dogs or help with their medical care? Please use the "donate" button on our website. Thank you!
