It's hard knowing what to do when you're about to adopt. But, we make this process even easier when you adopt with us, because we have trained staff that will go over every possible question or concern you and your family might have on introducing your newest pal to the family. 

We work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our pets here at METAIRIE HUMANE SHELTER. But, unfortunately we can't do it without people like you and your donations of time and money. So, if you ever feel like you want to be a part of our family and help some of the best animals around, check us out.
