About Us

Adopting A Friend

Adopting a dog or puppy from us is a simple process. After the animal has been chosen, via Petfinder, Facebook, family/friends, word of mouth or any one of countless avenues, an adoption application and if approved, then adoption contract is completed and the requisite fee is collected. All of the dogs/puppies that we place are fully vetted- spayed or neutered, heart worm tested, and started on heart worm preventative medicine, de-wormed for intestinal parasites, given flea preventative, vaccinated, and microchipped. Our adoption fee is $100.

Who We Are

Our mission is to rescue, re-home, or otherwise save as many dogs and puppies from euthanasia at the municipal  shelter and in the parish of East Baton Rouge.

We have regular adoptions events every Saturday (except the first Saturday of the month) and Sunday at Orvis in Perkins Rowe from 2pm -4pm. The first Saturday of the month we set up our adoption table at the Art Market downtown on Main St from 8am-noon.

Sporadically we sponsor or attend adoption events at other venues around Baton Rouge. These are always announced in advance of the date on our Facebook page.
