YELP BR, No Kill Animal Shelter, Baton Rouge, LouisianaToday, 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.

This is a wonderful post. I wish all shelters were no kill shelters. It is so sad how many homeless animals there are. I encourage everyone to adopt.

Ann,  I hope things went well today for this wonderful cause and some animals got to find their forever homes.

This shelter is having lots of success.  And I was surprised this weekend when someone called our office to find out what dogs were available.  Of course I had to refer them to the shelter number; but I am always amazed at the power of our outside blogs.
