Animal shelter pets are vaccinated, spayed, neutered, microchipped and ready to be adopted!

Let’s talk adoption. 17 million Americans get a new pet each year, but only 3.5 million adopt that pet from an animal shelter.

Many people don’t realize that breeders and pet stores are simply reproducing mass quantities of cats and dogs to sustain their business.

That’s where animal shelters come in! Walk into any shelter in Louisiana and you'll find pets of all shapes, sizes and personalities. They're vaccinated, spayed, neutered, microchipped and ready to be adopted!

Adoption is humane, easy and affordable. So when you’re ready to bring a new pet into your home, consider your local animal shelter!

Wondering where you can adopt a pet in Southeast Louisiana and South Mississippi? There are lots of options! Here's a list of adoption and welfare organizations in the region.
