About Us

Adopting A Friend

You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt.  We can email you an Adoption Application or you can fill it out in person at The Adoption House, 8476 Highland Road, Baton Rouge, or at FOTA sponsored off-site adoption events. 

As our foster dogs live with us, we get to know their personalities and temperaments. We make every effort to find the right match between our dogs and their new families so that it can be a good and rewarding experience for all involved.
The adoption fee is $150 for puppies under 6 months of age and $125 for all dogs over 6 months of age. This includes the following: spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, de-worming, microchipping and heartworm testing.
Please contact us for more information:  (225) 239-7368


Who We Are

Our mission is to rescue, re-home, or otherwise save as many dogs and puppies as possible from the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). 

Since starting in 2010, FOTA has found forever homes for more than 2000 animals from the EBR Parish shelter and PASS program.
