Animal rescue vaccinates dogs, cats

The Springhill Civic Center saw a flurry of activity on the morning of Saturday January 15. Despite gusting winds and steadily dropping temperatures, LaMa Animal Rescue offered a free vaccines clinic for both dogs and cats. 

Ten volunteers braved the cold to assist in making the vaccine process quick and simple.

LaMa Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity. They currently receive no government funding. Last year, contributions from citizens in Webster Parish and others enabled the rescue to send 500 abandoned pets to rescues in the North for placement with families. They currently have 90 animals in their care, placed with foster families all over the parish. Some are receiving treatment for heartworms, some are regaining strength after a long period of abandonment and some are on the waiting list with northern rescues, awaiting transportation or other services.
