We signed an agreement with hard-hit Livingston parish to provide field operations and animal sheltering services after the storm. For several weeks we have worked with partnered with national and local animal protection partner agencies out of parish animal shelter. As the parish returns to normal operations and limited animal intake, we have opened a new EMERGENCY DISASTER RELIEF SHELTER in Amite, where the pets rescued after the flood will be housed during the 45 day hold period, as attempts are made to reunite them with their families. We are located at:

Founded in New Orleans in 1988, the Humane Society of Louisiana leads the fight against cruelty to animals statewide. Our effective grassroots charity has aided, rescued and defended hundreds of thousands of animals. With a small, dedicated staff and hundreds of hard working volunteers, we passionately work to defend and protect all animals in need. We are not an affiliate of any larger group and we rely solely on private donations for support.


Because we are coordinating such a huge relief effort in Livingston parish and are helping groups around the state get needed supplies, monetary contributions (using the link above) are preferred at this time. Checks and gift cards may also be sent by mail to Humane Society of Louisiana, PO Box 740321, New Orleans, LA 70174.

In addition to our flood relief efforts, we have more than 50 homeless flood animals in need of medical care, and transport to loving new homes. We will happily accept any donations to support our shelter at the Enoch J. Donaldson Animal Sanctuary, 31058 Hwy 1055, Mt. Hermon, LA 70450
