Today, January 26, 2011, the historic Downtown Hilton is hosting a Benefit to raise awareness for the East Baton Rouge Parish initiative to have a No Kill Animan Shelter, called YELP BR.
Eat at the Kingfish Restaurant all day today, and mention to the server that you are there supporting YELP, and The Hilton will donate 10% of the money collected to support the No Kill Animal Shelter in Baton Rouge.
YELP House will have a Valentine's Open House on Saturday February 2th from 11am to 5pm.
If your family is thinking about adopting or fostering a dog, be sure and visit the YELP BR before you decide.
The pet adoption days are held thruout Baton Rouge at several locations. Visit their website for details. T
he new anomal shelter was opened in the spring of 2010 at 3205 Lanier Drive, Baton Rouge, LA. It houses about 50 dogs. You can visit weekdays from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm. Weekends are by appointment only. This new location allows new dogs with treatable illnesses such as kennel cough to be quarantined before being placed for adoption. It has a wonderful yard with outdoor kennels so the dogs can enjoy outside for the majority of the day and has a yard to allow workers to socialize the dogs and let them play.
