M/Y/D/S Clipart graphicsI had an experience when my son's pet snake got out of a cage and crawled outside; some neighbors luckily called Animal Contral instread of killing it.  The shelter in East Baton Rouge was great to notify him so he could arrange to get the pet back.  And give my son pet tips about just how clever snaks can be about getting around and thru tight places.

Join them online at Friends of the Animals in Baton Rouge to learn more about how you can help.
