HOPE's mission is to save and improve quality of life for as many stray and homeless animals as possible by placing them in foster or adoptive homes. HOPE (Humane Organization for the Protection and Education) for Animals also strives to educate the public about the dire need for spaying and neutering, as our country is currently fighting a vast problem with cat and dog overpopulation. Through our education program, we teach young children about the needs of dogs and cats and the responsibility of pet ownership.

HOPE for Animals is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations made to HOPE are tax deductible. We operate solely on these generous donations and grants to keep our operations running.
 
We are a no-kill organization that cares for animals for as long as it takes to get them adopted into loving homes. We house some of our dogs at a kennel in the Lafourche Parish area and rely on our established network of foster homes that take in rescues until they are adopted.

Hurricane Ida: GoFundMe Request

 
Thanks to our dedicated foster families, the HOPE for Animals dogs were all evacuated from the kennels for Hurricane Ida. We are so thankful to have volunteers who were willing to open their homes during such a stressful time. 
 
We sustained some damage to the kennels, including downed fencing, minor roof and electrical damage. We also have a large number of dogs who currently need to be spayed/neutered or receive heartworm prevention. Cases of heartworm rise after storms, so we are anticipating that we will be taking in even more dogs who suffer from the disease. We are also starting to take in some dogs that have been left homeless or need temporary housing. 
 
To support our efforts, we have started a Go Fund Me page to raise the necessary funding. Please click here:
 
 
Thanks so much for your support. We hope that you and yours are safe.
