The Natchitoches Humane Society will hold a meeting Thursday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Arts Council on Second Street. This month's meeting will focus on the need for and importance of fostering. Fostering gives displaced animals a chance they might not have otherwise. By fostering, you can promote healing, both physically and emotionally, for animals that have been abused, neglected, or abandoned and whose only other option may be a facility where they would only have a limited time to be adopted. Fostering gives them assurance that they are loved and can provide training to make them more adoptable. By providing a foster home, you not only save the life of that animal but provide a space for another animal so that they, too, have a chance at a better life.

Items for deployed military troops can be dropped of at any of the four Bank of Montgomery Branches. The project continues year-round with boxes to be prepared for Halloween and Christmas. The Shreveport Chapter of Operation Support Our Troops (OSOT) needs help with their on-going collection of items that can include instant hot chocolate mix/coffee/tea, tuna in foil packs, instant oatmeal/grits, Ramen noodle and instant cup-a-soup in any flavor except pork, chocolate candy, especially Hershey’s Kisses, white tube socks, artwork made by school children and notes or letters.
