The Natchitoches Police Department needs your assistance in locating a suspect for abandoning a puppy.

At approximately 7:10 a.m. on April 2 a subject in a white Nissan left a puppy outside the Natchitoches Animal Shelter. Officers were able to make out the last numbers of vehicle’s license plate as 470.

If you have any information about the subject or this vehicle please call the Natchitoches Animal Shelter at (318)357-3885 or NPD at (318)352-8101. All calls shall remain confidential.

To surrender or drop off an animal you must come between 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and leave it in the hands of an animal control officer. Surrendering fees are $5 per animal for city residents and $15 per animal for non-residence.

Abandoning an animal is a form of animal cruelty and is punishable by law.

  1. Other than the pup’s adoption, how was the case resolved? Was this person’s identity discovered? Is so, here’s an idea for punishment: Drop this person off somewhere in the woods in freezing cold weather and let him or her walk home.

  2. I hope Jerry Pierce didn’t adopt the abandoned puppy! If Jerry did we can expect a two-page hard-hitting story, in the times, about how wonderful it is to adopt an orphan animal!
