Our Pet List

Adopting a Friend

Adoption fees for dogs ($70 and cats ($60 includes rabies vaccination, that is given at the time the animal is spayed or neutered as required by state law. Once the animal is adopted, we take them to the vet for the spay/neuter and the Adopter will pick them up from the Vet. Dogs are given an 8-in-one shot and cats are given the 3-in-one shot. All animals are dewormed.

NOTE: No claims or guarantees are made by Tangipahoa Parish Animal Control concerning the health, temperament, or future size of the animal.
