Monday, April 17th, at 2:30 p.m. is the People/Pet March and Rally to the Capitol steps in Baton Rouge. Please plan to be there by 2:15 p.m. It's essential to have a large turnout for this event
Feel free to bring along your dog - however, if your dog is not one to enjoy social situations, please leave him/her at home. Having stressed or aggressive or overly-hyper dogs there will be worse than no dogs. Shannon has suggested marching with an empty leash in memory of a Katrina pet who died ... or is still missing ... or has not yet been reunited. Or you can carry a stuffed dog or cat or march with a photo or poster of a pet. If you want to bring your cat, please make sure it is in a cat carrier.
Please pass this on to all pet owners you know in Louisiana - those affected by Katrina as well as those who evacuated with their pets or whose pets were found and reunited.
