We asked our veterinarians what they thought about the safety of retractable leashes. Here's what they had to say: 1. Retractable leashes can damage your pet’s neck and throat. When your pet gets to the end of the leash, it can snap your pet’s neck back causing damage to their trachea and neck vertebrae. We treat many animals for neck and back injuries which can be very painful and have long-lasting effects. An injured trachea can cause a cough that can also affect breathing if severe enough. Even when keeping the length short on a retractable leash, injury can still occur.  2. Even though your pet is not aggressive, it can seem that way to...

Dear Supporters, We are aware of the recent rumors circulating in our community and would like to answer your questions. Yes, we recently were contacted by parish officials to potentially provide animal services to our parish in the event funding is no longer available. We understand that animal control services are critical to communities like St. Tammany. If it becomes necessary, we believe a private-public partnership would allow employees of the current parish shelter to continue their hard work for homeless animals in our community. We have not come to any formal agreements, we’re merely in a due diligence state. Additionally, we are...

During a disaster you don't think twice. You don't ask questions and you do everything in your power to help those in need. You use every morsel of your energy, every bit of compassion all to make dreams come true for those who deserve it. That's the story of Albany. Albany came to us when the devastating floods hit Louisiana August of 2016. He was one of 22 pups first rescued when Tangi Humane Society became completely submerged in the flood waters. After Albany's rescue, over 150 dogs followed. For the last year and a half, Albany has watched family after family pass him by, multiple people have looked at him, turning their heads and...

On Wednesday, December 6th at 7:30 am, we're loading up 40 of our rescued pups and heading to Jacksonville, Florida for the country’s largest adoption event. This adoption trip is just one part of our “Home for the Holidays” initiative, a goal set this November. We want to find a warm home for as many of our rescued pets as we can this holidays season. When our management team decided to rescue dogs from Hurricane Harvey this August, we knew it was going to be a challenge down the road. More than half of the dogs rescued had to be cured from heartworm disease, a fatal disease if left untreated, and are now coming available for adoption. The...

We met Treasure late October when she was brought into our rescue after enduring a tragic accident with a vehicle in the Mandeville area. Because her injuries were so critical and the pain was evidently severe, we rushed her to our partners at South Paws Veterinary Specialists so she could receive the medical care she desperately needed. Two days after her surgery something extraordinary happened. Treasure's parents contacted us after seeing her story on Facebook. The family was searching for Treasure (whose real name is Daisy) for weeks! That same day her parents and human brother came to see their sweet girl with the hopes they could...

Over one year ago, Albany, along with 21 other pups, was rescued when Tangi Humane Society, a no-kill shelter in the Hammond area, was completely submerged in the LA floods of 2016. Since that time, Albany was treated for heartworm disease and has watched each of his fellow displaced friends find their forever families. While he is so happy for all 21 of them, he often wonders why no one has picked him yet. Unfortunately, only one man has ever shown a true interest in Albany. Like many other large breed mixes in shelters across the United States, day-after-day people have looked at him and continued walking.   Luckily for Albany, Ms. Paige...

Little Harvey may not have been displaced from the hurricane, but he is still our little survivor! Many people don't realize the variety of situations shelter veterinarians face everyday.

And when push comes to shove, there are a lot of people behind-the-scenes that make miracles happen everyday. Little Harvey's story is one example of the endless teamwork it takes to help an animal in need. Harvey came...
