Apparel - LOUISANA SWAMP DOGS PROJECT t-shirt
The "Louisiana Swamp Dogs Project" was created after we here at VRC, set up a location in a rural/country area known as "Assumption Parish". Located about an hour and a half outside of New Orleans, this area is known mostly for its sugar cane fields, woods and swamps. They had a makeshift animal shelter located within the confines of the local jail and ZERO resources for the animals in the area.
We came along in 2014 and offered to help and have been here ever since. Our facility in Assumption Parish (now known as The Sanctuary) is nestled on 13 acres and is home to dogs of every shape, size, and breed, along with the Kajun Kitties of Bayou Corne and some misc. rescued livestock. But our main residents for this area are Hounds & Labs. This is a big hunting area and sadly during and after hunting season, these dogs either get "lost" in the woods/swamps or simply discarded after they are no longer needed. Besides having to go thru some "therapy" and teaching them to be "regular" dogs again and of course, dealing with their heartworm treatment, then comes the task of adopting them out.
We have started taking the "Swampies" on "tour" throughout the country to be adopted out into areas where they will never have to be used as a hunting dog again. The purchase of this shirt helps put gas in our tank and gets us from location to location, all the while bringing the Louisiana Swamp Dogs Project to a new city/town each month. And yes....that's the original Swampie on the shirt...ole Jethro himself!
