PLEASE CALL TO VOLUNTEER- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR:
** HEADING UP A DONATIONS COMMITTEE (NOT ONLY FOR LOCAL FUNDRAISING, BUT FOR FOOD DONATIONS FROM COMPANIES ETC. AND MEDICAL SUPPLIES DONATIONS

** HELPING TRANSPORT ANIMALS TO AND FROM THE VETERINARIAN
**FOSTER HOMES/FAMILIES NEEDED AS WELL
All our workers are Volunteers. No one gets paid for their work, their time, their gas or the food they feed the animals... Approximately 95% of our income from adoptive placements, fund raisers, and coin jars, etc. goes directly to vet care or general meds . HSCL, as an organization, has learned to be very frugal. Our volunteers, as individuals, have learned to be VERY, VERY generous with their time, money and supplies. If you make a donation to HSCL, you can be sure your money goes to the care of the animals and supports getting them adopted!
So if you would like to help volunteer by fostering, walking, socializing, or help with donations. We will gladly accept any and everything that you are most willing to do for these wonderful "forgotten pets"! Anything at all is appreciated and will be put to good use. EVERY BIT COUNTS!
As you can see we are a small group and we double up on the duties performed. All the above named people work "TOGETHER" as adoption workers so that we can get our furry krewe to their "FOREVER HOMES" as quickly as possible.
So for more information on the pets listed with Petfinder and other pets coming up for adoption, please email our Adoption Workers:
Or click the link above or below to see who is available OR WILL BE COMING AVAILABLE, so that we will be able to discuss a new "family member" with you. All adoption prospects are available for visitation by appointment only. (We have more sweeties for adoption, due to lack of volunteers not all of them are listed on petfinder, feel free to contact us if you are looking for something specific and do not see it on-line, we may just have your new addtion to your family waiting in line.)
We prefer that you email as we often get too too busy to personally take your call. Please allow us to email within 1-3 business days
Or if you rather contact us by snail mail concerning adoptions please write to us at:
We will accept Gift Cards such as Petsmart, Wal-mart, Sam's, Target, Kmart. If you wish to send people or animla care packages you may do so.
We are a small fostering network rescue group, but with BIG hearts that are working hard to make an impact for the well being of the animals in Central Louisiana! This means that we DO NOT have an actual physical shelter to house our rescues.
We have several very kind and generous Veterinarians who will help the animals when they can.
We work to rescue abandoned and unwanted animals, obtaining necessary veterinary care and placing them in loving, responsible homes. We place our animals either already spayed or on a spay/neuter contract which we follow up on.
We do most of our screening by phone or in person. We obtain Veterinarian References to help us to evaluate the prospective adoptive families. We are able to obtain Home Visits prior to adoptive placement almost anywhere in the country with the aid of a vast interconnected network of rescue workers across the US. This helps us place the pets in the most wonderful and best *FOREVER* home available.
CAFA also investigates neglect and/or cruelty complaints and cooperates with the local law enforcement officials in these cases.
We also work actively with Responsible Breed Specific Rescues for purebred pets that come to our attention.
