Loveabulls Project To Visit Wallace Center Saturday

Loveabulls Project To Visit Wallace Center Saturday

The Wallace Center in Raceland is accustomed to hosting children and teens on a daily basis at its building, 3603 Highway 308.

On Saturday, instead of opening its doors to just children and teens, the center will also welcome a furry variety of visitor in the form of some rescue animals from The Loveabulls Project.

According to center director Heather Benoit, the animals will make their appearance at the Wallace Center from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on April 18.

The Loveabulls Project is a Baton Rouge-based 501c3 nonprofit animal organization, which seeks to strengthen the bond between dogs and humans.

The founder/vice-president of Loveabulls and current Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter (LPAS) manager Hilary Knight said the organization does many things, including showing children and teens how to appropriately greet and take care of dogs.

Wallace Center director Heather Benoit said she’s excited to give the youth members of her Beyond the Bell after-school program the opportunity to interact with the animals.

“The presenters will go over how to approach stray dogs and other animals,” she said. “They will also learn how to take care of dogs and what treatment to use if the dog would become sick.

Benoit said these same youth members will be allowed to pet, feed, and wash the dogs.
