Each week, Bristol's Babies shines the spotlight on adoptable pets right here in northwest Louisiana and with your help, we hope to eventually find them all homes!

It breaks my heart that folks get to a place where they feel they have to leave their pet at a local shelter... especially when it's my favorite breed, a mastiff! Mastiffs are gentle giants and loveable couch potatoes! Make an appointment and meet Mary Lou at Pet Savers of Shreveport and fill out an adoption application today! She's already up to date on her shots and her adoption fee is $175.

Here's what the Pet Savers website has to say about Mary Lou:

This is me in a kennel in the Pet Savers van where I was left overnight by someone. The staff found me when they came to work. I am a beautiful Mastiff and I even have some training, and it turns out I am gentle. Pet Savers wishes people wouldn’t do this, but Caddo Animal Services isn’t open, and they must have been desperate. We simply don’t have room for more big dogs.

Pet Savers is located at 4380 Noyes Drive, Shreveport, LA 71119 and they are open daily from 12 pm - 4 pm. However, due to the current coronavirus concerns, you'll want to reach out ahead of your visit. You can call them at (318) 636-0400 or reach them on Facebook with any questions! Even if you aren't able to adopt an animal at this time, Pet Savers Shreveport is always in need of donations and volunteers so please consider supporting their efforts!
