Golda is a 4 year old Bull Mastiff available for adoption from New Orleans Bulldog Rescue. The most accurate adjective to describe Golda is goofy. She loves to play and frequently flops upside down to have her belly rubbed. She is extremely friendly to every person she meets, and would be a great family dog. However, Golda would do best in a home without young children because she is so large and doesn't always know her own strength. Golda is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and ready for YOU. For more information on Golda and other dogs available for adoption, please visit www.NewOrleansBulldogs.com.

Jena (A23639881) is a playful, inquisitive and loving, 2-year-old, spayed, Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who loves people, other dogs and even cats! Her story is one of determination, teamwork and the unflappable personality of an adorable little dog.
Jena was brought to the Louisiana SPCA in August after she was found roaming in the Hollygrove neighborhood. When she arrived, she had a tightly bandaged leg and an obvious stiffness to her walk. After an x-ray showed that she had multiple fractures in her pelvis, the shelter determined that she had likely been hit by a vehicle. Her injuries were pretty severe, but due to her outgoing and endearing disposition, the shelter veterinarians wanted to do what they could for her. She was quickly placed into long term foster care under strict cage rest, in the hopes that she would begin to heal. Over the next few months, the hits just kept on coming: a spot of ringworm was found on her injured leg; it became apparent that she was pregnant; she was found to be heartworm positive; and on top of it all, her pelvis wasn’t healing as well as the veterinarians would like. Through it all Jena was a trooper, hardly ever displaying pain or discomfort and enduring unpleasant treatments and procedures with a cheery attitude and kisses for her caretakers.
Jena is finally ready to be adopted after five long months of care, but her struggle is not over. She will likely develop arthritis earlier in her life due to her injuries, and it is possible that some day in the future she will need a special pelvic operation. She will also need to start heartworm treatment as soon as she gets adopted, but thankfully this treatment is completely covered by the shelter’s Heartworm Fund. However, despite these difficulties, Jena’s forever family will be the lucky recipients of a charming little girl who has touched the hearts of every staff member, volunteer, and foster parent she has come across.
To meet Jena or any of the other wonderful pets at the LA/SPCA, come to 1700 Mardi Gras Blvd. (Algiers), 10-4, Mon.-Sat. & 12-4 Sun., visit la-spca.org or call 368-5191.

Bailey is a 4 yr old, 50 lb Border Collie mix that was recently taken in from nearby parish kill shelter. She was an owner surrender; the owner had "too many" and Bailey was left in the yard. She kept trying to get out because she didn't like being a yard dog. So she ended up at Southern Animal Foundation. Bailey is housebroken, spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped; she's also great with other dogs and cats. She's incredibly sweet, however she's very cautious around some men. Bailey would do best with a female owner, and someone who is familiar with the Border Collie breed. Please give Southern Animal Foundation a call at 504-671-8235 for adoption info on Bailey!
BB Turtle: This sweet little boy kitten was found in the parking lot near Best Buy. Hence the "BB" in "BB Turtle". Volunteers at ARNO were at first worried that he was feral. But he quickly warmed up to people and (as you can see from the picture) he absolutely loves being loved on, especially if you're willing to rub his belly. He's also a master photobomber. Like he's really, really good at it. He has other skills, too, but you'll have to come by ARNO to meet him and see him in action. BB Turtle is definitely a charmer and anyone who meets this guy is just smitten. He's got a great, laid back, loving demeanor and he deserves a home of his own more than anything. He gets a long great with other cats and well-receives all visitors, strangers and regulars alike to his cage. Oh, and his coat is really soft. I know a lot of cats coats are soft, but BB Turtle's coat is very, very soft. For more information on BB Turtle, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
