Louisiana animal shelter stripped of medical supplies by burglars

Pointe Coupee Animal Shelter was recently burgled and the thieves took all their medical supplies along with most of their dog food and treats. All their vaccinations, syringes and antibiotics were taken. In addition other items taken include dishwashing liquid and a cart to move large buckets of food around.

They are seeking help to restock in asking for donations. I am reproducing part of their Facebook appeal below which sets out the items that they are seeking by way of donations.

“This is a major unexpected expense to replace everything that was stolen. If you would like to help we are asking for donations of the following : betadine, alcohol, peroxide, neosporin, anti diarrhea, allergy, bandages, tape, treats, and dog food. We use pedigree and retervier small bites which can be purchased at tractor supply. Also from tractor supply blue kote . The last picture is all we were left with in the cabinet of medicine. I will also add a donate button if you would rather make a monetary donation. Thanks to everyone who continues to help support us. Please don’t forget to share.”
