It’s important to remember that when you experience an animal issue in your parish you reach out to the appropriate animal control agency.
Did you know that each parish in Louisiana has their own animal control agency and their own animal laws? The parish animal laws are in addition to the state-wide animal laws.
Our New Orleans Humane Law & Rescue team is only able to enforce the animal laws in Orleans Parish. We have a contract with the City of New Orleans to provide animal control services and are only able to enforce the laws as they are written. For cases of animal abuse and neglect, we gather the information pertinent to the case and trust the courts to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
In Louisiana, our pets are a part of our culture as much as anything else. And for more than 130 years, the Louisiana SPCA has been an advocate for all our furry friends across the state. Follow our Lead and show the characters of Louisiana you care by supporting the Louisiana SPCA.
The Louisiana SPCA helped more than 3,000 animals find their forever home in 2020.
