Gulf South Golden Retriever Rescue

Gulf South Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. (GSGRR) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization run by a small group of volunteers.  We are home based in the Greater New Orleans, LA area, but have volunteers in the Gulf South and Northeast. We take in purebred Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes from public shelters and accept owner-relinquished Goldens from the Gulf Coastal states (LA, MS, AL, FL).  We provide our dogs with veterinary care including spaying or neutering as necessary, evaluate their temperament, and socialize them by having them live with foster families. Then the dogs are matched with loving, carefully selected adoptive homes. We place our dogs in adoptive homes not only in the Gulf South, but in the Northeast as well.

Louisiana Boxer Rescue

Louisiana Boxer Rescue, located in New Orleans, LA is an all volunteer, non profit, 501C3 organization that provides a safe haven for Boxers surrendered by their owners or that have come to us from an animal shelter. Unlike a shelter, our rescues live with a foster family during their interum for veterinary care, behaviour evaluation and observation that assists us in finding them the best suited permanent homes. Boxers that come to us receive necessary veterinary care, including required vaccinations, spaying/neutering and heartworm treatment. Once care and evaluations are complete, these boxesr are then ready for adoption. View adoptable Boxers from Louisiana Boxer Rescue

Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)

PAWS, better known as Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society, is a non profit 501(c)(3), no-kill animal organization located in Belle Chasse, Louisiana.  PAWS goals are to provide the local area with a humane facility in order to care for unwanted, abused and abandoned animals until such animals can be placed in suitable adoptive homes. To impress upon all members of the community the fact that the adoption of a companion animal represents a ten to fifteen year commitment; animals are not disposable commodities. Our goal at PAWS is to educate members of the community in what constitutes responsible pet ownership, emphasizing the benefits of the spaying/neutering of animals and providing information in pet care, training and maintenance.
