Adopt Today

Saving just one animal won't change the world, but surely it will change the world for that one animal.

Where are we going?

We team up with transport partners around the country to alleviate the stress of animal overpopulation in our region. We send animals from our shelter and shelters in neighboring parishes and communities.

Local Partners

We partner with these shelters to send animals from their facilities along with animals from the Louisiana SPCA across the country to their forever homes.

Transport Destination Partners

These shelters take in animals from our shelter and other local shelters to free up space in areas overpopulated with homeless animals.

 

 

Why transport? 

There is an immediate opportunity to save more lives through transports. Due to the high animal overpopulation in our region, the Louisiana SPCA transports animals across the country for adoption. We work with reputable shelters and match them with cats and dogs that will be adopted by residents in their community. 

 

Are the animals safe? 

The specially designed, 38 foot transport trailer is equipped to transport 50 - 100 animals at one time. The animals are safely secured, our staff follow all DODT regulations and the trailer is video monitored and air-conditioned. Each animal travels with a health certificate and a thorough vet exam prior to leaving the Louisiana SPCA. 

 

What does it cost? 

Transports are impactful but expensive. The average transport ranges from $7,000 - $10,000 depending on the needs of the animals (about $150 per animal) and distance traveled. You can help save more lives by donating to Louisiana SPCA Transport Program today.
