"HART" continues to help animals in Tallulah

Posted: Updated:

TALLULAH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Sunday's heavy rainfall did not help those who are still dealing with flooding from the rain earlier this week.

As we first told you Friday, one group has been in Tallulah helping animals get to higher ground so they don't drown.

Some dogs stuck on what little piece of land that isn't underwater, others wading in water up to their stomachs.

That's what many pet owners have been faced with in Tallulah while flood water continues to rise, some owners faced with a more difficult situation.

Co-founder of "HART", Chappy Jeffers says, "one of the neighbors tried to save one of the dogs that was drowning and he was up to his waist in water and could not swim himself but he just did what he could, and the other just parish under the weight of their chains and water."

"HART" stands for helping animals reach tomorrow.

Jeffers says, "simply driving around and trying to spot looking in backyards trying to spot what we can and offer to help."

Once the group finds animals in need of help they give anything they can to help their quality of life.

Jeffers says, "we provide kennels up to 20s by 20s according to the space we have we provide food pans water buckets anything we feel the dog needs."

Sunday "HART" help build kennels for 11 dogs, and the owner says the group was a miracle.

Dog owner, Raymond Carter says, "I appreciate everything they are doing for me, my ground is real low and I've been having problems with the dogs, so they stepped in."

Jeffers says she just wants to be the voice for the voiceless.

She says, "they always say I might not change you know the world but today I made a big difference in 11 dogs."

Jeffers says she helps these animals because she loves them.

"HART" will be available to help anyone in an emergency situation, you can contact the Madison Parish Sheriff's Office.

Hart is also in need of more supplies and volunteers, you can find ways to help on their facebook page.
