Laplace Interstate Rescue Dog
On Friday, April 17, 2015 a motorist on side of I10 spotted an injured dog laying in the swamp under the bridge. Louisiana State Police were notified and officers from Troop B contacted Captain Brandon from Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. They immediately jumped into action. After walking a half of mile through the swamp, Captain Brandon and the officers used a rope ladder and ice chest to make a basket and hoist him back up to the interstate. The dog has a severe leg injury and is full of puncture wounds but was happy to show love to all who helped save him. He was taken to the St. John Animal Shelter where it was determined his injuries were more than they could handle. He is being transported Monday to Furry Friends Animal Hospital in Harvey where he will receive the medical care he needs and then he will go to Jefferson SPCA located in Elmwood where he can eventually be adopted. All donations will go to Jefferson SPCA for his care. He is a very sweet and lovable dog considering all he has been through. All donations are greatly appreciated to give this boy a second chance at life he deserves.
Thanks Kristi Peppo St. Pierre. Since this first happened Friday, I have been overwhelmed to see so many animal lovers show support and love for this dog. I look forward to posting updated pictures as he recovers. He will be in great hands at Furry Friends Animal Hospital. Please let your brother in law know we are forever grateful.
I challenge you all to donate to help in this dogs care.
Silena, I don't live in La. but have been following his story and donating here from TN. I understand he is at Dr. Rediel at Furry Friends Animal Hospital. I don't know the city, but I'm sure you can contact the SPCA in Jefferson who had him originally. I PRAY he is your dog. PLEASE let all of us know if he is. Poor baby.
Silena Evion I hope and pray this is your dog. Good Luck and Prayers sent your way.
Thank you everyone responsible for saving this pup, from the citizens that reported his whereabouts to the officers and Captain Brandon from Cajun Pride and each and everyone of you helping to get this pup healed. (So sad to think it sounds like he may have been used as a bait dog as that is usually what being "full of puncture wounds" amounts to)! Thank you everyone even those with their shares and Prayers!
God bless all that help in this dog's rescue, recovery and adoption you are all heroes!!
I love compassionate humans like these men who saved this injured dog - they are true heroes.
