We can’t believe that this year has gone so quickly. Twelve months ago, we didn’t even have screens in place, let alone movies to show. Now we’ve shown dozens of films to thousands of people and had a blast in the process. It has been a roller coaster ride and we don’t plan on getting off any time soon.

SINGFENCESROGUE ONEMANCHESTER BY THE SEA will be here for your New Years festivities. We had quite a busy weekend and look forward to having you visit us one last time in 2016. With all these amazing films playing, we are holding off on any new films until next year, but we do have one last present to share with you. Continue reading »

The Rescue Class of 2016…What a Year!

We had a goal of 400 companion animals that would find their forever homes in 2016. We were well on our way to reaching the goal until that number was shattered after the disastrous flooding in our region in August. Our rescue brought in an additional 250+ animals that were in desperate need of care. We anticipate the final number for 2016 to be 500 saved and adopted lives!

Your compassion and generosity saved so many of these lives! Without you, we could not fulfill the mission of eradicating pet homelessness and euthanasia in the New Orleans area via our all-volunteer efforts. Continue reading »
