Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

All Creatures Rescue is here to assist homeless pets of SW Louisiana and SE Texas. We specialize in nationwide placements, especially in the New England areas. Professional transportation is available when needed to ensure our rescues arrive in the hands of their adopters safely.

About Our Rescue Group:

We at All Creatures Rescue are dedicated to helping rescued, homeless, abandoned and
unwanted animals in the SW Louisiana/SE Texas area. We have come to realize that all creatures, large and small, need someone to help them. No one deserves to be without a home.
We are a volunteer only group, not a shelter, that operates through the loving care of our foster homes. We do not have a shelter to house our rescues so we are only able to take
in those who can be provided with Foster Care. All of are rescues are only placed into the most secure and loving homes, nothing else will do! We specialize in the placements of our canine and feline friends but
we will also assist in finding loving homes for Birds, Small Animals, and even Horses.

Come Meet our Pets:

The best way to meet one of our special pets is to email us at admin@allcreaturesrescue.com we will then provide you with full details on our adoption process. If you would like, you may fill out an adoption application at our website and one of our volunteers will help you find the perfect pet for your family. All of our pets have been spayed, neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and parasites and treated for any illnesses or problems.

Our Adoption Process:

Our Adoption Process is as follows:
1) Download, complete, and return you adoption application to us by email.
2) Your application will be reviewed and your references checked. If you have not been on file with a Veterinarian in the last 3 years please complete that section of the form with 2 personal references.
3) Upon review of your application you will be notified of your adoption status with us.
4) If your application is approved we will contact via email to set up a convenient time to conduct a
phone interview.
4) Phone Interview- During the phone interview you
will learn all there is to know about the pet you wish to adopt. We will also set up time that is convenient
for all parties involved in which the Home Visitation will be conducted. *Please not that if you live more
than 30 miles from Lake Charles, LA you may be asked for photos of your home, yard, and fencing
prior to our visit*
5) Home Visitation- During the home visitation our representatives will request to see all parts of your
home and yard, especially the areas where your new pet will frequent. Please note that the pet you
are interested in adopting may or may not be present during the visitation. Upon passing home visitation we will complete all necessary adoption
paperwork and your new pet may or may not be left with you. There are instances where we will visit
your home more than once to help the rescued pet ease into his or her new environment while still being with the people they have learned to trust.

While are adoption process may sound lengthy, it is what we feel we must do to ensure our rescues have the best possible homes.

Requirements for Adoption:
1) Adopter/Foster must
have a fenced yard to
adopt any dog/horse from us.
2) Adopter's/Foster's
fencing must surround an
exit leading from the home.

5) Anyone that applies as
an Adopter or Foster must
not have ever been cited
for violations of leash laws,
animal cruelty or any other
form of animal negligence.
6) BREEDERS NEED NOT
APPLY AT ALL!! We do not
approve of any breeding
habits if it is not for the
sake of improving the
breed for show purpose or
to prevent extinction of
endangered animals!
There are too many
homeless cats, dogs,
horses, and small animals
in the world now, do your
part not to add to the pet
overpopulation!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
