I recently semi-retired and wanted to volunteer somewhere that addressed the problem of unwanted cats and dogs in our area. After more than a decade of assisting several groups with pet adoptions, I decided to work on the prevention side of this issue and began to volunteer at Robinson's Rescue low cost spay/neuter clinic. I am completely impressed by the staff, their skill and efficiency, and the care the animals receive. I would not hesitate to bring my own dog or cat there. There is not a wasted moment or penny in the day...everything is focused on the owners and their pets and toward helping our community save lives through prevention. Our parish shelter euthanizes approximately 1000 animals a month. If you were to tour that facility you would see that the volume of unwanted pets turned in is horrific. There is simply no where to put them and even though they do have an adoption program, it is a drop in the bucket. The availability of low cost spay/neuter services and community education are the key to ending the senseless euthanasia of so many homeless pets in NW La. RR serves the public, animal welfare groups and area (NW La.) shelters. The board is superb and many of them have been involved in animal welfare in our area for years. I just can't say enough good things about RR and the need they have begun to fill in our area. I am so proud to be one of their volunteers. I would not hesitate to take my own dog or cat there.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing cats and dogs go home HAPPY, HEALTHY, and STERILE!
