Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter Holds Adoption Event

People in southeast Louisiana continue to recover from historic flooding.

Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter held a special adoption event on Saturday. The shelter says the event was held to find homes for as many animals as possible, in order to make room for animals arriving from flooded areas.

The shelter is trying to keep animals that have been displaced by the flooding in one place. It hopes to reunite the animals with their owners as the recovery process continues.
