LSMSA students support the financial burden of caring for local rescue

LSMSA’s Animal Welfare Club raised $200 from bake sales and donated the proceeds to the Natchitoches Animal Shelter to help with medical expenses associated with an animal cruelty case.

Diamond, a pitbull terrier, was seized and saved from cruel and inhumane conditions in mid-March.

Pictured left to right are club members Marianna Curtis, Cayla Garrett, Nick Adams, Hannah Haughman (Club President) and Hanah Hartley. Shelter Director Jonathan Meziere and Officer Desiree Conant brought Diamond to the LSMSA campus for the check presentation. LSMSA Animal Welfare Club is sponsored by faculty members Dr. Nathalie Malti and Dr. Maggie Hodge.

  1. Good job LSMSA students!!

    We have a strong animal support foundation in Natchitoches. Organizations like the Humane Society, Hope for Paws, Happy Tails! staffed by dedicated volunteers do first-rate work rescuing animals, providing services, getting animals “furever” homes, vet care, spade/neutering. Good stuff by good folks. And, they welcome volunteers, help, donations…get involved.

    • Jim great post and so right! These groups do so much with so little! Even the smallest donations can go along way. Call one of the groups and see what they need it’s not always money,but other things as well.

  2. this is such an awesome job by this group and what they did for
    diamond.I cannot believe or want to believe anyone could treat an animal
    like this abuse that occurred with diamond and the turn around he has made.
    I believe anyone who harms an animal is not a human but an animal
    themselves….keep up the great work !
