New Orleans has gone to the pit bulls

if you plan to visit New Orleans, perhaps to visit Villalobos new pit bull rescue, help Sula Foundation (pit bull rescue) for Mardi Gras or Valentine’s Day, here are some places to stay, visit and explore and maybe even adopt some pibbles… You could even bring your dog to a parade for Dogs…

Grand Opening of New Orleans location for Villalobos is March 2012

Our new rescue/adoption facility is being set up in the exciting city of New Orleans, LA. At this time we are only open to the public on a very limited basis and by appointment only (for adoptions and to drop of donated items)  Located in the 9th Ward, we hope to bring the much needed assistance to the overwhelming Pit Bull population as well as canine education and care to the residents of the area. As for volunteering, we could use assistance in transporting dogs (talk about an exciting road trip) and donations of crates and fold down cages.

Creole Gardens B&B  1.866.569.8700

http://www.creolegardens.com/pet_friendly.html

just minutes to the French Quarter, walking distance to the Convention Center, 3 blocks from the WWII Museum and art galleries, one block from the St Charles Ave streetcars (and the Mardi Gras parades too!) and standing at the gateway to the mansions of the Garden District and such uptown attractions as Tulane & Loyola Universities, the Zoo and Audubon Park.  Pet friendly dining is available on St. Charles and also Magazine.

All of the 24, pet & kid friendly, bed & breakfast guest rooms are individually decorated.

No weight restriction
No arbitrary limits
No massive charges – just $15 per stay for one pet, $25 per stay for two

There’s a wonderful pet friendly park right around the corner. Well behaved dogs are allowed off the leash and there are “pooper scooper” bags for your use. Walk your canine pal over to Coliseum Square Park, just one block away and enjoy the fresh air, a large fountain, live oak trees and lots of fun folks and pooches. It’s 3 blocks long and 1 block wide and surrounded by a wonderful assortment of 1880’s era rambling mansions. Meet the locals (writers, politicians, movie stars, artists) and give your pooch some good exercise.

The world famous New Orleans levee is just a 10 minute drive uptown (south, near Tulane University) from us. And by “world famous” we mean famous amongst dogs in the know, because every savvy New Orleans pooch knows that the levee, at the end of Magazine Street, is simply the best place to run, sniff, play, romp and even swim in the Mississippi River! Park your Chevy by the Levee and enjoy acres and acres of grass along the Mississippi River and even a little pebble beach.
