Meet Chris Annis of "Housecalls" and learn about her fabulous business and how it can help you during the holidays!

Catahoula Rescue is an all-volunteer group whose mission is to advocate for homeless Catahoula Leopard dogs and Catahoula mixes, to place these animals in permanent, loving homes, and to promote responsible guardianship through humane education. Our main focus is to work with our local shelters and dog owners to increase breed awareness, work on behavioral problems/challenges and placement. If a dog is already in a shelter setting we work with the shelter by either helping to find an approved home or foster placement, provide resources to help facilitate an adoption or by providing an assessment that might lead to an adoption.

For more information, you can call either Catahoula Rescue at 207.273.1320 or Tractor Supply at 207.594.7200. Most activities are free of charge; however, a donation to the rescue is greatly appreciated.
