Due to the overwhelming concern of the safety of our staff, the public at large, and our animals, we will only be able to do adoptions by appointment. Appointments will be a necessity to ensure that we are operating in compliance to the new temporary changes in regards to limiting the amount of people in one place. To make an appointment, please call the Eastbank Campus at (504)736-6111 or the Westbank Campus at (504)349-5111.
