Cuddly Constituents


Susan’s pup J.D. He’s from the St. Charles Parish Pound by way of pet adoption day at PetSmart.

As the proud parent of two rescue pups, Susan has made caring for our four-legged friends her “pet” project as our councilwoman. For all of her efforts, the Louisiana SPCA awarded her the 2011 Dorothy Dorsett Brown Humanitarian Award.


J.D. taking a break from the campaign trail!

Susan’s comittment to reform doesn’t stop with criminal justice and good governance — she brought her determination to bear to improve the city’s animal care and control services.


Susan got Maya from the SPCA from back when it was on Japonica St.
