SOS Rescue needs families to help Save Our Strays
BATON ROUGE - SOS Rescue is looking for summer volunteers and foster families as they continue their effort to "Save Our Strays".
The Plaquemine-based group was established in 2003 and holds weekly adoption events every weekend in the Baton Rouge area.
Andrea LaFaver, President of SOS Rescue, said It is currently kitten and puppy season for the rescue group and they have some adorable pets looking for loving homes.
To get involved with fostering an animal with SOS, Andrea recommends first going to their website to learn more about their mission and meet some of the animals up for adoption.
The SOS Rescue website has recently revamped their "kitty cam" to the more user-friendly Ustream platform which offers 24/7 views of feline fun.
Another way that families can help out is by volunteering their time to help run adoption events. Andrea said that children and their parents are encouraged to volunteer together with SOS Rescue.
SOS Rescue is an all volunteer group and the extra benefit of socialization with children for the pets is always welcome.
The group is running a new campaign this summer in an effort to feature the adult cats and dogs who have been rescued and awaiting adoption for more than a year.
For more information about how to volunteer, adopt, or donate, please visit SOS Rescue's website to find out about their mission and upcoming events.
