A big event is set for this weekend to help out The Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana.

It's called Wash, Dry & Wag, and it's a dog wash to help bring in funds to pay for the care of animals throughout our community.

The local group helps find homes for abandoned animals and takes care of sick animals in our region. We showed you the video of the puppies abandoned near Blanchard. The Humane Society cares for dozens of puppies abandoned in all parts of Northwest Louisiana. The Humane Society’s veterinarian bills are quite large. The box puppies were covered in fleas, tapeworms and some had pneumonia.

Therefore, the HSNWLA has waived their adoption fees and agreed to pay for their treatment. But in doing so, they are in need of donations in order to keep accepting other animals.

If you would like to attend this fundraiser event: Wash, Dry & Wag! Dog Wash in the Bellemeade Shopping Center on Youree Drive in Shreveport. The dog wash will take place on Saturday, July 19 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
