Donations for “Aristotle Stafford” may be made directly to The Ark Animal Hospital, 4025 Jefferson Hwy., Jefferson, LA 70121 & 504-834-0906.     b.  Contact GGibson1@ATT.Net to help with an abandoned kitten hiding under an air conditioning unit near his apartment.  The kitten comes out at night & appears to be at least semi-feral or scared to where it runs back under the air conditioning unit when it is approached by humans. I suspect, given the description of the kitten’s actions, it could be trapped with very little effort / time. If someone can trap the kitten I can place it here in Mississippi with a local veterinarian who will work to socialize it & hopefully, adopt it to a loving home.  If the kitten cannot be adopted, the doctor will assume responsibility for its care / housing.  I can arrange for whoever traps the kitten to immediately take it to the Animal Emergency Clinic on Veterans Boulevard (less than half a mile from those apartments) where it can remain overnight …. the next morning it will be transported to The Cat Hospital of Metairie, & after Dr. Miller completes her exam of the kitten & OKs the cat for travel, I can drive down & pick it up & transport it to the doctor here.  I suspect the manager of the apartment facility will have to give permission for this trapping, & I can obtain the appropriate contact information if a trapper is located & forward the information to the trapper.

If animal shelters in your geographical area can make room for additional dog(s) &/or cat(s), please contact www.AnimalRescueNewOrleans.org (ARNewOrleans@Aol.com or 504-571-1900 or KathyBSweeney@Yahoo.com or 504-343-3683 or JAlthans@ChNOLA.org or 504-430-6477).  We welcome your year-round help in adopting or transporting animals, donating pet food or volunteering in any capacity.  The more shelters along the way that can accept animals, the more animals that can be part of a happy-homes solution.

Another way to help is to make sure your dog knows your area well by taking her or him for regular long walks around the neighborhood. This helps in two ways, first, more people will get to know you and your dog and will be more likely to try to get the dog if they see him or her out by themselves. Second, your dog will know his or her way around and will be less likely to get lost and travel for miles, more likely to head for home and find it when hungry, hot, or finished with exploring alone.     Always keep a good clear current photo of your pet or pets on your computer ready to make lost pet fliers. Try to photograph them every few months.
