We won't allow the rough seas of Hurricane Isaac spoil our bounty. The animal rescue community is stronger and more resilient than any hurricane. With the anticipation of many animals that would come to the shelters, the Jefferson Animal Shelters sent a total of 304 animals to (adoption gaurantee) rescue groups accross the country.
-- August 1, 2012 – Treasure Chest Casino in Kenner, Louisiana is teaming up with the Jefferson SPCA for the Inaugural Pawrates of the Pontchartrain

Pawrates of the Pontchartrain
, a fun pirate-themed gala in support of local at-risk animals, will be held Saturday, September 29, 2012 in the Treasure Chest Casino Showroom from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. The evening will include an open bar, live music by Danny T & Crawdaddy and food from Mr. Ed's, a silent auction, and other fun surprises.
