Our Pet List
out the LA/SPCA Website!
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.
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.
Adopting A Friend
Information about adoption, including offsite adoption events, can be found on the LA/SPCA's website at
