The Sula Foundation joins coalition of animal welfare groups

Earlier this week, The Sula Foundation joined a coalition of animal welfare organizations demanding temperament evaluations before the euthanization of 145 dogs seized in a North Carolina dogfighting/breeding case. The coalition includes BAD RAP, Animal Farm Foundation, Villa Lobos Rescue Center, Downtown Dog Rescue, and Our Pack. You can read more about it here, and here, and read our recent email to our members here. For the best coverage, and more links, go to BAD RAP's blog. We'll continue to post some updates and important links as things progress.

The Louisiana SPCA's Dog Day Afternoon is coming...

On March 29th, the Louisiana SPCA's Dog Day Afternoon will take place in City Park. This is the first time that City Park has been the location for the event--in the past, it has always been held at Audubon Park.

You can make a contribution to our fundraising efforts or you can join us as part of The Sula Foundation's team. We're hoping to raise at least $1,500 for the SPCA, and show how strong the pit bull community can be!

Available shifts: 8AM – 12Noon or 10AM – 2PM or 1PM – 5PM. Volunteers cannot bring their dogs.

When you sign up as a volunteer, be sure to list the Sula Foundation as the organization affiliation so we get credit for having the best volunteers!!
