Looking for a new family member ?

(WVUE) -

If you're looking to expand your family then this would be the perfect day to move ahead with that plan. It is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

It is celebrated every April 30. The goal is to raise awareness for the thousands of pets in need of a home.

Right now, across the country, many pets await adoptions from shelters. Thousands also are euthanized yearly after a certain time period if a home can't be found for them because there is not enough room at the shelters across the U-S to keep them all.

The Louisiana SPCA says right now 100 animals are available for adoption. If you're interested locally in adopting one of them you can visit www.la-spca.org/adoptables. It is located at 1700 Mardi Gras Boulevard.
