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 Organizations 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.

HOPE for Jane

This is our "Jane" pulled from the parish shelter. She has just gone through a much needed knee surgery which cost $1500.00. Jane is a young, 2-year-old dog weighing only 20 pounds. We are asking for your help in paying for her surgery. Any donations collected above the $1500.00 will go towards the vetting and feeding of the homeless pets in our care.

Donations may be mailed to HOPE for Animals, P.O. Box 1341, Thibodaux, LA 70301 or by PayPal at hopeforanimals@bellsouth.net. Please state that your donation is for Jane.

Thank you for your generosity and support!

Buddy & Friends Visit Local Students

HOPE for Animals volunteer, Ruth Chiasson, visited St. Genevieve Catholic School's Patriots Club and spoke to the group about HOPE's programs.
The program included information about the organization's rescue program of homeless dogs and cats and Pet Owner Responsibility. The "star" of the visit was Buddy, a 4-month-old puppy rescued from a garbage can and who is now a HOPE Adoptable pup. Buddy got lots of love as he went from arm to arm of each of the Patriots.
Many thanks to St.Genevieve Principal Chris Knobloch, staff, and Patriots for allowing HOPE to participate in the delightful visit.
The St. Genevieve Patriots Club is a group of 5th-7th grade students that provide community service, including visits to local nursing homes and fundraising for Crossroads Pregnancy Center, Haiti Mission, and HOPE for Animals.  

Thank You, St. Genevieve Catholic School!

Thank you to St. Genevieve Catholic School, Principal Chris Knobloch, the staff, students, and the Patriots Club for your generous donation to HOPE for Animals. The school raised $600 from a popcorn sale. The money will be used to continue helping the homeless dogs and cats rescued by HOPE. We are most appreciative of your generosity.
