Ascension Animal Advocates is a rescue group formed to take pets from the Ascension Parish Animal Shelter. These cats and dogs are completely vetted, spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Adoption days are held every Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. at Petco on Seigen Lane in Baton Rouge. AAA is desperately seeking volunteers to foster dogs and cats, to help with fund raising, and to work at adoption days. If you can help, please call 225-315-3438 or e-mail
