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

Where are we going?

On January 30, we transported 22 animals from the Louisiana SPCA, St. Bernard Parish Animal Shelter, PAWS, Iberville Parish Animal Control, St. Charles Parish Animal Shelter, and Heavenly Dog Paws to Golden Valley Animal Humane Society in Minnesota. The Humane Society of Southern Mississippi in Gulfport is partnering with us and sending 30 additional dogs. Golden Valley Animal Humane Society will meet our transport team in Hattiesburg, Mississippi so our drivers don't have to navigate through icy conditions up North. We're sending positive vibes, woofs, and meows to hope for a safe journey!

 

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.
