Here in the Ark-La-Tex we love our pets. It does not matter if you have a dog, cat, fish, turtle, horse or whatever, you know that your pet is a member of the family. In our area we have several animal rescue centers devoted to taking in animals in need and giving them to a loving home.

We understand that while you may be an animal lover to your core, that you may not be in the position to add a pet to your family home. That is ok. You can still help to give back to these local organizations in other ways.

Saved by Grace Animal Rescue is an animal shelter in Shreveport that got its start in 2017. They are asking for the public's help in raising funds to help with their operating costs. So how do you help? On Thursday, May 24th go Texas Roadhouse in Bossier City for dinner. While you are ordering your steak (try the Porterhouse T-Bone, you will not regret it, but you will need a to-go box) or whatever you are craving, mention Saved by Grace Animal Rescue to your server. Do not forget to mention Saved by Grace; ten percent of the sales will go to them. Helping has never been so easy and delicious.

If you have adopted a rescue animal we would love to see him or her. Comment on our Facebook page with a picture of your rescue.
