Welcome to our Jefferson SPCA Team Page! 2020 has definitely proven itself to be a challenging year but we can still come together as a community to help the homeless pets of Jefferson Parish! Although we won't be having an in person event, you can strut your mutt with us and tag us on social media to share in the fun.
This is our first year participating in Strut Your Mutt. We have seen many organizations raise money with this amazing event to help animals all over the country. The one fun thing about it being a virtual event this year is you can walk with your dog or cat (some cats love being on a leash) anywhere you want! Strut Your Mutt Day is October 24th, but online fundraising ends on October 31st!
We have had some tough cases this year needing veterinary specialists outside of shelter medicine. Thanks to our amazing donors we were able to help Tinsy Girl, a senior min pin with chronic ear infections get a surgery to end that pain. Her foster mom finalized her adoption and said she's a completely different dog since surgery. Marvin, Dylan and Kate are all kittens that came into the shelter this year with eyelid agenesis. Not to mention, we have had many avian and exotic animals come into the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter's care and we the Jefferson SPCA always cover the visits to the specialist in our area.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.
Thank you for your support!
