Animal rescue serves up hamburger fundraiser

By Tina Montgomery

You can buy a hamburger plate and help save homeless dogs and cats in Northwest Louisiana.

LaMa Animal Rescue is having a hamburger plate sale for their first fundraiser of 2023. On January 23, you can purchase a hamburger plate that includes a burger, chips, and drink for $10. 

Director Michelle Lewis says they are ready and excited for what 2023 will bring. All proceeds from the hamburger plate sale will go towards vet bills and food for the dogs and cats in their care. Weekly vet bills for the rescue can run about $5,000 a week. LaMa provides medical care and vetting for all animals in their care so they can be adopted out or placed on transport for adoption through rescues located in the northern United States.

“In 2022, we transported 689 dogs/pups and 40 cats/kittens,” Lewis said.” 

She added that these numbers do not include animals that went to another rescue on intake or passed away nor do they include community spay and neuter procedures.

Hamburger plates will be for salesroom 5 until 7 p.m. Monday, January 23 at Springhill Farmers Market. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Sharpes and Smiths South-Central or at the event. For more information, contact LaMa Animal Rescue via their Facebook page.

LaMa is a 501c3 non-profit community volunteer group that advocates for the many homeless, abused, and neglected animals of Northwest Louisiana and surrounding areas. They have a strong focus on spay/neuter education and subsidy as well as transport to no-kill partner rescues in New England.
