On Saturday, August 13, 2016, southern Louisiana was hit with rain that accumulated more than 20 inches. Louisiana Governor Edwards declared a state of emergency on Friday, prompting thousands of residents to evacuate with their possessions being left behind, including pets, horses, and livestock. This devastation is sensitive to Jeffers since many of our customers and their loved ones reside in the battered area. Jeffers always helps out when animals are in need, and we are doing our best to help to promote awareness and donating goods to those affected.
