BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — How can a calf make a difference in how animals are treated at EBR Animal Control? It’s part of Klienpeter Dairy’s solution to improve conditions through financial donations to the Companion Animal Alliance.
Klienpeter says they're working with Friends of the Animals for what they hope is the largest financial effort to make the EBR Animal Control Center more animal friendly.
For a donation, people can get on a list to have a Kleinpeter calf named after them. There are about 800 calves born at the dairy every year.
People who donate smaller amounts will special edition T-shirts, even a brick at the CAA facility.
“I think at this time their contributions amount to about $10 thousand a month and we want to raise awareness and double that number, and after we get to that point and time we would like to double that number again,” Jeff Kleinpeter, said.
The dairy is also sponsoring an adoption day, which is set to be held on July 8 in Perkins Rowe.
