What we aim to solve

Shelter Animal Count is an organization that gathers statistics from nationwide shelters and rescue organizations that turn in their numbers. According to the Shelter Animals Count, approximately 2,873 shelters and rescue organizations participate and have populated the following statistics giving us the best scenario of pet surrendering, abandonment and overpopulation in general. With these numbers LaHR has complied statistics for Siberian huskies that are involved below. The American Kennel Club states that in 2018 the Siberian Husky is the 14th most popular dog out of 192 breeds classified in America. Husky numbers represent 7.29 percent of the breeds surveyed. 810 huskies were euthanized in Louisiana in 2018. This leaves a great need for Louisiana Husky Rescue’s presence. Note that 38% of registered agencies did not report in 2018. The number could be doubled but no assumptions will be made.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Become the main savior of Siberian Huskies in Louisiana with a strong network of volunteers, fosters and adoption events. Goals: 49 Foster homes throughout the state of Louisiana that can foster 2 Huskies each = 98 huskies in care at a time max. Save 392 Huskies per year through our foster program. Adopt out 350 Huskies per year through our adoption program. 35 Volunteers at call per year for events. 6 Major events throughout the year. Raise $50,000 per year in donations for operating costs and media exposure.

Our recent acquisition of Fluffy Tales Husky Rescue, in Shreveport, Louisiana; adds 11 more individuals with over 2 years of experience in rescue. One being an event and fundraising organization, will help increase our revenue for 2020 with positive reflection for 2021. We have also added a new project to help spread our mission statement statewide. It can be found here: www.louisianahuskyrescue.com/balteaux.

More staff. More innovative projects.

Record keeping in the form of our activities map and transparency of our progress with our entire volunteer and foster staff create a positive influence that welcomes open dialogue.

Acquisition of Fluffy Tales Husky Rescue was a huge leap for us and added more coverage in the state. The next project is the launch of our Balteaux project that can be found here: www.louisianahuskyrescue.com/balteaux
