Humane Society invites public to holiday party and silent auction

The following is a news release from the Humane Society of West Louisiana:

The Humane Society of West Louisiana invites everyone to the annual holiday party and silent auction 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, November 19, at the War Memorial Civic Center, located at 250 West Seventh St., in DeRidder.

HSWL is not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States.
The adoption center in Rosepine operates independently and must raise their own funds.

HSWL, founded in a DeRidder kitchen in 1998, assists animals in 10 parishes.
The small facility depends on volunteers and donations. Over 10,000 animals have been rescued in the past 13 years.

Animals who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected receive veterinarian care. They remain at the adoption center or in a foster home until a permanent home is found.
The goals of the HSWL is to end the cycle of pet overpopulation through spaying or neutering, to educate the public about pet ownership responsibility, and to end animal abuse through education.

The holiday fund raiser is a way for people to do some early Christmas shopping, and help lonely animals.

Merchants across central Louisiana donate gifts for the silent auction every year.
Door prizes will be awarded throughout the evening.

Youngsters can participate at the silent auction with a special table for children under 10 years old.

Admission is a gift for a dog or cat, pet food, or a tax deductible donation.

Refreshments will be served, and tickets for door prizes will be available.

Visit www.petfinder.com, and enter 70634 in the location box to view dogs and cats at the Humane Society of West Louisiana Adoption Center.

For more information call HSWL at 337-462-3321.

    Section 8 applicants will still face difficulties finding low rent housing

    Monday, July 24 2017 8:16 PM EDT2017-07-25 00:16:54 GMT

    Part of the reason the waiting list takes for Section 8 Housing takes so long to pare down is because there's a shortage of Section 8 housing, at least in the Lake Charles area. It's because of the economy...and high rents.  Local officials are working to increase the dollars available, but it's still hard for residents to find the housing. "It's harder than Houston and Houston is bigger," said Kristina Broussard,  who lives in public hou...
