JACQUES, August 13, 2016 Our hearts at Metairie Humane Shelter are heavy today as our longest resident crossed over the Rainbow Bridge last night. Beau Jacques came to us from a puppy mill at the young age of 8 months and lived with us until the ripe old age of 12 years old. He died from congestive heart failure after a suffering a slight heart attack a month ago. He fought courageously until the end. He was with for so long that he was truly a family member to us all but especially to Harold and Joan. He will be greatly missed by all of us!
I just want to say thank you to everyone for your thoughts and kind words about Beau Jacques it means a lot!!! I'd also like to say this is a perfect example of why more "no kill" shelters are so important. Jacques was given away by the puppy mill because his testicles never dropped so he was of no use to them and although we had him rehomed a couple of times he was always returned for one reason or another and it all was caused by the fact that the first eight months of his life which are so important for socialization he was with nothing but dogs therefore he was very leary of people and took awhile to warm up to people and this was always a problem in finding him a forever home of his own. But with Harold and Joan and Metairie Humane Shelter Jacques always felt that he had found his forever family. I am so thankful he was given to us and he was allowed to live his entire life with people who loved him but most important to Jacques was his shelter sister Lagniappe who has been with us for almost as long and who is grieving the loss of her brother as she has spent all day looking for him. This is the reason everyone should always try to adopt from a shelter and always support your favorite no kill shelter!!!
JILL, born March 14th died March 15th
Jack and Jill were born to a Mama being treated for heartworms. We were not aware she was pregnant when we started the treatment. Treatment was stopped as soon as she was confirmed to be pregnant. We don't know what role this treatment presents in pregnancy. Jill is survived by her brother Jack and mother Ellie Mae. Jill was with a such a short time and died at the vet clinic but she still left paw prints on her Mama and our hearts.
Jill was laid to rest in the Metairie Humane Shelter's cemetary after a brief service.

TABATHA April 21, 2017
Our dear sweet cat Tabatha crossed the Rainbow Bridge peacefully in her sleep this morning. Tabathe was pensioned at the Metairie Humane Shelter. She came in as an adult cat in 1993 and never found her love affair. Tabatha had full run of Metairie Humane Shelter and was quite happy being the official greeter. In 1995 she acquired the position of manager. We had many happy years together. She is an inspiration to all that have cats in our lives by living twenty seven years and being healthy. She could still climb and loved her wet food and daily catnip.
She was amazing.
Love you forever Tabatha.
CHUNKY BUTT, August 16, 2015 Today is August 16th, the vet called this morning to tell us that our sweet cat Chunky Butt has passed away during the night. She had waited years for her loving home, a few people came to see her but none took her home. So few cats get placed in homes, so please spay, spay, spay and neuter your pets. She had a very comfortable life here at Metairie Humane shelter and we will miss her.
