LA Animal Rescue hosts all of their animals in private foster homes until adoption. This gives new adopters honest information about the animals including habits, behaviors and personalities. Typically, these homes foster more than one animal, which gives the dogs or cats a chance to be socialized with other animals. LA Animal Rescue’s animals are often surrendered, abandoned, strays and from shelters. Because the organization doesn’t have an on-site facility, potential pet parents are invited to meet dogs and cats at one of the adoption events or a private introduction can be arranged. Adoption fee, which is a donation, covers a health exam, vaccinations, de-worming, flea treatments, spay/neuter and microchip.

We took in over 6,000 dogs and cats in 2016. ONLY 22% OF THOSE ANIMALS WERE ADOPTED AND ONLY 10% OF THOSE ANIMALS WERE RECLAIMED BY THEIR OWNERS. THIS ALSO MEANS THAT OVER 4,000 DOGS AND CATS WERE PUT DOWN LAST YEAR. These are not numbers that we are proud of but they have been steadily decreasing since 2008. We want to continue changing these numbers but we need your help! If you have a dog or cat that you need to rehome, PLEASE try all other methods before bringing them here. With fewer than 70 cages, we can't possibly keep all of the animals that get brought here. We try to find as many of them homes as possible but we only adopt out an average of 5 animals per day. There's just not enough room. Please spay and neuter your pets and don't let them roam free. These are the 2 main reasons that we take in so many animals each year. Do your part to help reduce the numbers and help us make a difference! And don't forget that we have many wonderful pets looking for homes!Are you a low-income pet owner? PAWS of NE Louisiana offers assistance through their low cost spay/neuter program. Call PAWS at 397-0007 or email them at to see if you qualify. You can also print an application from their website . Please do not call the shelter about this program as we will only refer you to PAWS. Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter is a governmental agency under the Ouachita Parish Police Jury. We are responsible for protecting the public safety and health as associated with domestic and wild animals. We accept strays and owner turn-ins during our regular hours of operation. Please consider ALL options before relinquishing your pet to us. We can take in 30 or more animals on any given DAY so it is not possible to put them all up for adoption. Please spay and neuter your pets so we can reduce these numbers...Can't make it to the shelter during regular business hours? We often have cats/kittens at the Petsmart adoption center in Monroe. You can go by and see them during Petsmart's business hours. You can do the adoption there at Petsmart and take your new kitten home the same day! Because many of the pets we save are strays, we cannot guarantee that they are house-trained, good with children, good with other pets, friendly or unfriendly. We simply don't know their history unless the owners gave them up for adoption. But we feel all animals are deserving of a home and safe place to live, regardless of how large or small, cute or homely, perfect or disabled.
