At the New Orleans Healing Center, we believe that everyone deserves to experience the joy and love of animal companionship. That’s why we’re excited to announce our new program, PAWSitive Impact, dedicated to supporting low-income and unhoused community members and their furry companions.
Our mission is twofold:
- To provide immediate relief by distributing essential pet food and supplies to those in need. We understand that the financial burden of caring for a pet can be overwhelming, and we want to help make it easier for people to keep their beloved animals by their side.
- To empower people to be the best pet parents they can be. We will be offering educational resources and training classes to address common behavioral challenges and promote responsible pet care. This includes information on:
- Low-cost veterinary care: We are compiling a comprehensive list of clinics and resources that offer affordable veterinary services for those facing financial hardship.
- Positive reinforcement training: We believe in using humane and effective training methods to build strong bonds between pets and their owners.
- Basic pet care: We will be providing information on proper nutrition, grooming, and overall wellness practices to keep pets healthy and happy.
- Housing resources: We understand that finding pet-friendly housing can be a significant barrier for some. We will provide information and resources to help people find housing options that welcome their furry companions.
Our goal is to create a supportive community where people and pets can thrive together. We believe that by working together, we can make a PAWSitive impact on the lives of countless animals and their loving human companions in New Orleans.
