Dogs of New Orleans, Resilient Pups Pinot Noir.
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
“We are focused on rebuilding our organization and our new campus,” says Lori Haeuser of The Louisiana SPCA. It’s been two years since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ripped through the Gulf Coast, leaving the shelter, its full-service clinic and other facilities at a total loss. Since then, the team has been operating out of a former coffee warehouse. But, in April, in the spirit of New Orleans, the Louisiana SPCA opened the first phase of their new campus. With two phases left to go, much support is needed.
So, to help raise funds, The Louisiana SPCA has become a “Bark Partner” with Dog Lovers Wine Club. Anyone around the country in eligible wine shipping states can sign-up for a wine club membership at Dog Lovers Wine Club and designate The Louisiana SPCA as the beneficiary. With each membership, the shelter will receive ongoing support directly from Dog Lovers Wine Club. Go to http://www.dogloverswineclub and click on “affiliates” for more information.
To celebrate the official kick-off of the Bark Partners Program, The Louisiana SPCA and Dog Lovers Wine Club are throwing a “Toasts and Tails” complimentary wine tasting.
