LIVINGSTON- Animal rights activists, pushing for a parish-wide animal shelter here, are asking for help funding the project.

"All we have to do is get the parish people on board," SPCA director Terri Dunlap said.

"They have to give a little money," she added.

Experts predict setting up an animal control organization for Livingston Parish would cost about $700,000 per year. Funding could be the largest obstacle for the idea.

Currently, there is no service for the entire parish but municipalities have shelters for people inside town limits.

The SPCA also maintains a Facebook page of lost pets in the area. Click HERE to visit the site.
