Angela Hill: S.O.S. ? Animal Lovers We Need Your Help

The Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society has been saving animals in the parish for years. First it was an all-volunteer group just trying to find homes for the unwanted. Then over a decade they built a relationship with the parish…and after hurricane Katrina they built the first new animal shelter in the area. It was a perfect marriage between a non-profit wanting to save as many animals as possible and a government that had the responsibility to be the dog catcher.
But this June the director of the PAWS part of the shelter was arrested for embezzlement. She faces felony charges. Paws members were devastated. But, now they face an even bigger crisis…trying to keep the shelter open.
They have built systems in the operation that would prevent theft from ever happening again. They have a new director, and they have the passion of saving animals in Plaquemines as they always have.
But now they need money and it is not just money to replace what was stolen, but money they spent helping untold families during and after Hurricane Isaac.
It is an organization that has done so much right. It has helped so many for so long.
