Metairie Humane was founded by a group of concerned long-term Metairie residents who wanted to do something to improve the lives of all dogs. Metairie Humane uses all donations and funds raised at events to fund veterinary care, upkeep of pets awaiting adoption, long term care of unadopted pets and other related expenses. Metairie Humane does NOT have ANY paid staff members.

We strive to improve the adoption prospects and the quality of life for homeless pets in the Metairie/Greater New Orleans area. Spurred to action by the frequent headlines of the continual failure of the local shelters to provide adoptable pets a chance at finding a new forever family, Metairie Humane was born.

Today, Metairie Humane tries to provide as many homeless pets as possible with a safe and loving environment as they await a forever family. They provide educational services encouraging responsible pet ownership and making known the many benefits of spaying or neutering your pets.

Metairie Humane's  "The Petique" goes to local pet events and fundraisers. Selling such items as custom ID Tags, t-shirts, clothing, costumes and sports jerseys to help fill the gap between the actual costs of caring for our dogs and the adoption fees we receive.

Adoptable pets are usually available for potential pet parents to meet them from
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.,

8 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.  Saturday
