LASPCA seeks food, toys after spike in animal intake

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The past three days have been unusually busy for the La. SPCA, and the organization is asking for the public's help.

Since Monday, the shelter has taken in 75 animals, about 25 per day. The normal intake is 13 animals a day. The recent intake includes 35 kittens, six cats, six puppies and 28 dogs.

The shelter is seeking donations of canned kitten food and toys for the dogs and puppies.

“As the state's largest open admission shelter we accept every animal that comes through our doors,” says Louisiana SPCA CEO Ana Zorrilla. “Although we anticipate an influx in kittens during this time of year, we've seen a dramatic spike in our intake number over the past three days.”

For those who would like to donate, items can be dropped off to the Louisiana SPCA at 1700 Mardi Gras Blvd. Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Those who would like to donate online can visit the organization's Amazon Wish List.
