Local Puppy Up For Adoption From POLA Foundation

Most pet owners only worry about heartworms during the summer, but here in the south they are a major concern year round. Erica Falbaum, creator of the Pet Education Project, sat down with Steve to discuss the importance of heartworm prevention. 

Heartworms are caught and spread through mosquitoes. Heartworm prevention is a must for all pets living in Louisiana even in winter months. Get your pets tested at least once a year. Heartworm prevention can only be prescribed with a veterinarian.


Rudy was found scared and injured in the streets of Shreveport on December 12, 2016. The next morning he was brought to the vet (South Shreveport Animal Hospital) where it was discovered Rudy had been shot with BB’s. The BB’s were removed and it was discovered Rudy had also been severely kicked and beaten leaving bruises for over a month.

POLA Foundation was contacted and asked if we could take in another “street dog”. So thanks to the wonderful animal community, Rudy had a rescue. An awesome foster was found who has loved him and let him know the kindness of human touch. 

Rudy is just about ready for adoption. Rudy is between 2-4 years old, neutered, up-to-date on shots, mixed with pure sweetness and awesomeness 

If you would like to be Rudy’s people and adopt him forever, contact: https://www.facebook.com/polafoundation/ or polafoundation@gmail.com
