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

Hurricane Harvey Transports

We are coordinating transports across the state to other parts of the country to prepare for in-take of animals affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.  By transporting adoptable animals out of Louisiana we are creating much needed space to take-in animals affected by both deadly storms. We’re not only transporting animals from our facility, but animals from all over southeast Louisiana. So far we’ve been able to successful transport about 300 animals from the Louisiana to partners in other states. Our next transport is scheduled for Saturday, September 9 that will include 64 cats and dogs from Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society, St. Bernard Animal Shelter, Terrebone Parish Animal Shelter and the Louisiana SPCA. These animals will be transported to the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.

Please consider donating to the transport program below so we can continue to move animals out of affected areas. 


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.
