Pet Lovers

Here in New Orleans, pets are part of our lives as much as anything else. Let the Louisiana SPCA help you care for your pet! 

Food pantry application

The Louisiana SPCA developed the Food Pantry Program to help families in need by providing pet food, litter and other pet-related necessities. The program is designed to provide short-term relief. Because the Food Pantry supply is solely dependent opon donations, our supply is often limited. In order to continue the program and have it available for as many families as possible. we are revising the program requirements.

Effetively immediately:

  • The Food Pantry is only available for Orleans Parish residences
  • The length of time for continual participation is six months or six visits, whichever comes first
  • Food Pantry participants who reach six months or six visits will be able to re-apply after a one-year waiting period
  • Community Cat Caretakers are not eligible for Food Pantry participation

Other requirements:

  • Pet caretakers are required to demonstrate that their animal(s) is up to date on ALL vaccines
  • Your animal(s) must be spayed or neutered OR have a current inact permit
  • In the event that your animal(s) is not vaccinated or spayed/neutered, please email our Food Pantry coordinator Beth Renfro at beth@la-spca.org or our Community Clinic at 504.363.1333 to learn about low-cost options
  • Participants can take part in the program once before having to meet these requirements
