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.

Thank You for a Successful Shrimp Dinner Benefit!

Thank you for helping to make our recent Benefit Shrimp Dinner a huge success. It was a much needed boost to help HOPE rescue, foster, medically treat, and find homes for many homeless pets.
 
A special thank you to these indispensable folks: Todd Broggi and Crawdaddy's Seafood, for providing the delicious meals; David and Brenda Biondo and Pro Tire, for providing the facilities for our drive-through meal pickup; and to HOPE's dedicated volunteers who always give so much of themselves to help animals in need.
