On January 28th officers arrested three people and rescued 12 dogs after finding a dog-fighting operation while searching for drugs in a Hammond home. Sheriff’s deputies found the 12 dogs chained or secured to trees throughout the backyard not too far from a dog-fighting ring, a 10×10 box with 3 feet wooden walls. After a two-week holding period, the dogs were released and transported to Northshore Humane Society, a no-kill animal rescue located in Covington, LA, where they are now available to be adopted into loving, forever homes. The shelter has named the group after Mardi Gras parades including Zulu, Endymion, Barkus and so on.
Northshore Humane Society Director of Operations, Alexandra Coogan says they know these dogs will make great companions and now need the community’s support to find them homes.
