Birthday Parties

What better way to celebrate your child's birthday than with adoptable animals?! The Louisiana SPCA provides a unique and fun setting that will leave a lasting impression on your child and their friends. You and your guests will celebrate with a fun and educational hands-on animal experience, all while learning about our four-legged friends and how you can help homeless animals in our community. This experience is ideal for children ages 5 and up.
