Adopting A Friend
Adopting your Angel with a Tail
We offer pets for adoption six days per week at the sheltering facility at 2680 Progress Rd – Tuesday through Friday Noon to 6pm, with 11-5pm Saturday and Sunday. Please note that the shelter is closed on Mondays. Pets of all sizes, breeds and age are available for adoption or foster. All pets adopted are sterilized (spayed or neutered), current on vaccinations, tested for heartworm disease, Feline Leukemia, FIV as appropriate and have an implanted microchip to ensure you can find your pet should they become lost in the future.
Our current adoption fee ranges from $60-100 per pet and you are provided with all the medical paperwork to bring to your veterinarian for a check-up. Please see our website for more information on adoption specials!

About our services
We operate the sheltering facility for East Baton Rouge Animal Enforcement. By law dogs & cats are held 3 days, and for 5 days if they have ID such as tags or microchips. Horses & other livestock are held for 5 days after which they are available for adoption. We encourage you to visit daily looking for your lost pet as Enforcement operates 24 hours per day all over the Parish responding to lost and injured pet incidents. Over 12,000 pets enter the system annually from an area of approximately 420,000 citizens.
We are open for you to search for your lost pet seven days per week – 11am to 5pm Sunday through Friday (with Thursday having extended hours until 7 pm) and 10am to 5 pm on Saturday. When the allowed time has expired the pet becomes the property of Companion Animal Alliance.
CAA facility is approximately 14,000 sq feet and was built in 1980. We house approximately 100 adoptable dogs and cats at any given time with the number increasing daily due to foster care help provided by loving volunteers willing to share their homes to help dogs and cats ready for adoption into their forever homes.
In addition to stray animals and adoptable animals the facility also houses dogs and cats on rabies quarantine and those involved in court cases.

Who We Are
Companion Animal Alliance is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that works to drive excellence in animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs in the Greater Baton Rouge LA Area.
Companion Animal Alliance's mission is to reduce the number of animals entering the shelter, treat animals humanely while they are in the shelter’s care, and finds homes for animals, returning lost ones to their families while finding foster care and permanent homes for other dogs and cats.
A Vision of Caring.
- Prevent animals from entering the system by promoting spaying and neutering; implement a comprehensive trap-neuter release program for feral cats; provide intake counseling for owners relinquishing their pets to the shelter.
- Provide humane treatment for the animals in our care by implementing cleaning and medical protocols.
- Expedite the exit of animals from the shelter system by implementing programs that help lost pets return to their owners, by implementing creative adoption programs, and by developing a foster care program.
