Citizens of Louisiana Will Have March Declaring Never Again! Should We Be Forced To Abandon Our Pets

In response to forcing people to leave their companion animals behind when hurricane Katrina hit.

This is in Support of The Louisiana Pet Evacuation Bill (SB607). A common sense law. Circulate this far and wide. If you know anyone in Louisiana, pass this along. Maybe next time the tragedy can be averted.

WHEN: Monday, April 17, 2:30 p.m.

WHERE: The Louisiana State Capitol, 900 N. 3rd St., Baton Rouge

FOR MORE INFORMATION: 504-305- 4113 or

In large numbers, they will hear us.
In solidarity, we will triumph for our animals.
