All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Starbaby is a perky little porker. She was very thin when she came into rescue and her foster mom (as she often does) overcompensated and now Starbaby needs to lose just a teeny bit. She is still active and playful. She is a happy go lucky little girl and loves other dogs and people after an intial time to warm up to them. She was very shy when first rescued but has come a long way. She would love a family with lots of kids to play with and watch after. Starbaby has chased outside cats for the fun of it but is just curious about inside cats and keeps her distance now that she knows they have sharp edges :) Starbaby was a light heart worm positive when tested over a year ago but has been on a slow kill treatment since then. She will be tested before placement and DHS will be responsible for continuing treatment.
The DHS organized in November 2008 to care for the unwanted and neglected animals of Northeastern Louisiana. We are funded only by donations. We ARE making a difference but we still have a LOT to do....
