ANIMAL CARE IN MOREHOUSE PARISH

The Melton Veterinary Hospital at 10735 McCreight Street in Bastrop provides the best animal care in Morehouse Parish. It supplies services to family pets and horses in Morehouse Parish. Horse activities are very popular in the parish and a fully equipped local facility is handy for routine care and emergencies. Dr. Glen Melton, DVM and Dr. Kellie Jones, DVM work with a staff of dedicated veterinary professionals who are committed to providing quality care to area animals. Established in 1978, a new state-of-the-art facility was completed in 2009 to offer full services and premium care to pets in a friendly comfortable environment. Please visit their website and Facebook account for more information.

After practicing veterinary medicine in Bastrop for 30 years, I made a decision to build a new veterinary hospital in 2008. A new facility meant debt but it would provide a well-equipped facility and the environment needed to provide exceptional care.

ANIMAL EVENTS IN MOREHOUSE PARISH

A number of horse riding events are scheduled annually at the Chemin-a-haut State Park. Equine friendly trails are designated in the park. Regular livestock and rodeo type events take place at the Morehouse Activity Center (MAC) in Bastrop and private arenas. The MAC is a tremendous resource of information about horse boarding facilities, livestock veterinarians and farriers that serve the area. The MAC has RV spaces available for events and animal related emergencies. Ruby Collins coordinates activities at the MAC and can be contacted at (318) 281-7123 for information or you may visit the Morehouse Activity Center website for more information on the facilities.

Morehouse Parish has an active Humane Society and Shelter which is operated through a corporative effort with the City of Bastrop. The welfare of animals is a priority to the volunteers who support the local shelter.
