Meanwhile, over at the Hurricane Katrina SPCA Rebuilding

All right People. Let’s get this party started

[whistle blows, digs in]


Here’s more dirt on Sender-Inner Laurie D.’s Hope for Animals and the Louisiana SPCA groundbreaking that happened last year…



  1. Aww, this is too adorable. Especially the “Adopt Me” bandanna. I would if I could, you beautiful pup.

  2. Foreman Dog watches for rule infractions.

  3. Shouldn’t that be Foredog?

  4. circuscake says:

    he looks so serious- obviously a very dedicated foredog!

    good luck pup- i hope you find a good home with someone who truly deserves you…

  5. Desdemona says:

    I cannot possibly imagine how such a gorgeous, sweet looking dog could be even temporarily without a loving, “forever” home! Please tell me he/she has been adopted!

  6. No slacking allowed when Foredog is on the job!

  7. I’m really glad to see this was posted here. The puppehs, kittehs and peoples of New Orleans still need a lot of help!

  8. shandrewsca says:

    I’m sure he has been adopted, he is such a beautiful dog and obviously a good temperment being he let us humans put all the crap on him LOL

  9. Wow, that perfectly sized hard hat is anerable! Not to mention how cute the dog is! Good luck and prayers for the SPCA rebuild in nawlins 🙂

  10. I love the pup – specially the bandana. How could you resist??

    But – The MS Gulf Coast was hit equally hard folks. Please don’t forget them in your wishes and good luck. They are trying to rebuild their lives too. The SPCA there was completely flooded, loosing many animals (water was never expected to reach that far inland) They have since rebuilt an entire new facility also.

  11. Read the articles on the homepage… They almost made me cry and they are exactly why I got a rescue dog.

  12. Echoing what Shannon said: The Humane Society of South Mississippi in Gulfport MS was 7 miles inland, across the road from the airport. It was flooded and many animals were lost. The new facilities are wonderful and they have started a spay and neuter program for $35.00.

  13. Please check out the ‘wish list’ on the SPCA site. If you can spare $10 for a Lowe’s gift card, or have old cat toys you don’t need, you can make a difference. You’d be surprised how little is often needed to make an animal safe.

  14. O.M.G. The little hardhat is absolutely adorable! And what a nice guy to put up with humans so calmly. I want to take him home and snorgle that beautiful red fur every day. I hope he found a good home and that his valiant efforts help the animals in Louisiana.

    That dog is braver than I will ever be. Hope he’s got a great home and a big big yard to play (and dig) in.

  16. We have such an overwhelming dog/cat overpopulation problem here in Louisiana because we’re blessed with an abundance of ignorant and/or apathetic people who don’t believe in or care to have their pets spayed or neutered. This is why animals like this gorgeous girl end up homeless, and many of them euthanized. It’s the biggest heartbreak for those of us whose greatest passion is animal rescue.

  17. this a beautiful and I’ll be smart doggie.
    i wish i could adopt him.
    maybe someone will see him on the COL and adopt him!

  18. I volunteer at an SPCA and the La. SPCA is chock full of win. BTW – If you donate stuff for animals, send cash or new and unopened stuff. Used cat toys will be thrown out for sanitation reasons. If you do want to make in-kind donations of used stuff, they can always use clean, fresh towels for the critters. (Vet clinics will take that, too.) But not toys, unless they are new.

  19. Thanks for posting this! Our friends (four-legged, two-legged, and otherwise) still need a lot of help.

    And the hard hat rules.

  20. So sweet! Hope the SPCA comes up trumps…

  21. CheshireCat says:

    Awww, My baby is a rescue-kitteh from New Orleans. *removes hard-hat and pats doggy head* I’m sure you’ll find a home soon.

  22. Sharon Wilson says:

    Young dog, there’s no need to feel down/I said young dog/get your head off the ground/I said young dog/join the SPCA/there’s no need to be unhap-py…

  23. bananasforbunnies says:

    He’s got an important job to do and he does it well!

  24. The rebuilding is wonderful, and most likely a larger facility. The one is So. MS was already being planned when The Storm hit. It actually took longer to build due to funding drying up. People can’t donate when they have to totally rebuild their lives.
    I also know all shelters down there are still struggling with the exploding feral populations and heartworm infections. If you know of families with pets, please send them items to help with the pets.
