Heidi Paterson from Acadiana Animal Aid stopped by the studio today with two guests of her own: Halo, a rescue Great Pyranees and her foster mother, Erielle.

Acadiana Animal Aid was called to Opelousas where a few feral Great Pyranees mothers had 21 puppies. The puppies were in need of rescuing due to other wildlife attacking them and the busy roads nearby.

Thanks to the media in Acadiana, all 21 puppies found foster homes where the puppies are learning to socialize.

On Friday, 13 of the puppies will be transported to their new home in Colorado. Halo, who was fostered by Erielle and her family, is one of the puppies that will be making the journey.

Paterson spoke on the importance of foster families and the positive impact that they have on Acadiana Animal Aid. She reminded us that because of foster families and transport donations, the organization is able to save thousands of lives each year.

Acadiana Animal Aid is asking the community for donations to help fund this Friday’s transport to Colorado. For more information, visit their website at
