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.

Early Giving for GiveNOLA Day has begun!
GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour event taking place on May 2, 2023, and Early Giving is available beginning April 17, 2023. Hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, this annual fundraiser was created to inspire people to give generously to nonprofits, thereby making our region stronger and creating a thriving community for all.
HOPE for Animals asks that you support our ongoing efforts to rescue, house and find forever families for our region's homeless pets. During 2022 alone, HOPE saved close to ONE HUNDRED dogs and cats! With your help, we aim to continue our decades-long mission of saving and improving the lives of as many homeless animals as possible.
If you're not familiar with this fine fellow, may we introduce you to SPOT! Rescued from euthanasia at a regional kill shelter, Spot is completing his heartworm treatment before being available for adoption. This energetic, loving boy was surrendered to the Acadia Parish Animal Shelter when his owner moved into an assisted living facility and was not able to bring Spot with him. Unfortunately, the shelter was over-capacity, so Spot was listed for euthanasia in order to make room for incoming dogs. Because of your financial support, HOPE was able to save this precious boy and help him find the forever family he so deserves.
