Aid abandoned animals
Across the street at Railroad Park Louisiana Peach Festival-goers were enjoying all the food, fun and games they could stand. The stores that line downtown Ruston were filled with shoppers who were hunting the best bargain shoes, clothes and other merchandise.
Further out in the community past the downtown, there were adults at work and children at play.
In all of that revelry and common day-to-day activity, the abandoned would-be pets of this city wandered in search of a shady place to rest or an unattended trash can to rifle through for their next meal.
