American Humane and Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter Event Team

July 6, 2022

This past week, American Humane returned to Louisiana’s Terrebonne Parish to host a free wellness clinic for cats and dogs alongside Zoetis, the world’s leading animal health company, with assistance from the wonderful staff at Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter. Last year, American Humane’s rescue team deployed to the region to help animals left stranded in the destructive wake of Hurricane Ida.

As the community continues to recover, veterinary healthcare teams at the animal shelter administered essential vaccines, microchips, flea and tick treatments, overall wellness checks and more – all at no cost to the families and their cute companions. During their appointments, pet parents also received a low-cost spay or neuter voucher, learned the importance of routine veterinary care and were informed about local veterinary resources available to them.

“It is critical that, just like the rest of our family, our pets are vaccinated and receiving wellness checks and we are honored to once again provide the community of Terrebonne Parish with these lifesaving services.”

– Dr. Robin Ganzert, President & CEO of American Humane

Community members were thankful for a little relief – and it came just in time, as inflation continues to increase, and prices of goods and services soar throughout the country. In total, 105 animals were treated at the clinic in just a four-hour span, including 79 dogs and 26 cats.

Your donation today will allow American Humane to welcome and care for so many pets at today’s veterinary clinic and for others around the country and provide support for our lifesaving efforts that help thousands of animals in need.

We hope you will join our compassion movement to help build a better future for animals and people.
