- D9's intake area is geographically limited. I only take in dogs from the 9th Ward or very close by (Franklin Avenue cooridore, for instance). Thus any dog I consider taking in must be in or very close to the following areas: St. Claude, Bywater, Holy Cross, Lower 9, Florida, or Desire. Bordering areas of the 8th Ward and Gentilly Woods will also be considered, if space allows.
- I primarily take in stray/homeless dogs. If you have found a stray/homeless dog in the 9th Ward area, please contact me to see if I can help.
- I do not in general take in dogs that are being "rehomed" by their owners, whether in the 9th Ward or elsewhere. I will do this only in extreme instances.
- If you work with a rescue group or shelter and a dog is brought to you from the 9th Ward, please contact me and I will help if possible.
