Our Pet List

Whether you are looking for young, old, energetic or laid-back, we have the perfect pet for your lifestyle. And if not today, as an open-admission shelter, we may very well have what you are looking for tomorrow! Come by and see all the homeless animals waiting for a family to love. We have approximately 100 dogs and cats available for adoption on a regular basis.

Adoption Process

The LA/SPCA pet adoption process includes meeting with a matchmaker to match your lifestyle with the perfect companion. You will spend time with any of the pets you think would be a great companion. You may even want to come back another day to make sure he is the one! All of our animals must be spayed or neutered before you can take them home. Sometimes your perfect companion has not had this procedure done, so please be patient with us if you have to come back to pick him up. Large dogs and pit bulls require a yard check before you can bring them home.

All of our animals have been spayed or neutered before they are released for adoption. We encourage anyone with animals to spay or neuter their pets.

10am to 4pm, Monday Saturday and 12pm to 4pm on Sunday

Who We Are
Chartered in 1888, the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LA/SPCA) is the oldest and most comprehensive animal welfare organization in the state. Our mission is to advocate for the animals of Louisiana by advancing their welfare, promoting their interests, and fostering the human-animal bond through innovative programs, education, and service.

The LA/SPCA is not a state, parish or city governed shelter. We are an independent 501(c)3 non-profit offering a broad range of services and programs including advocacy, legislative services, statewide cruelty investigations, sheltering, full-service animal control (Orleans Parish only), adoption, disaster response, education, and obedience programs.
