Vet Adoptions primarily helps animals with the Orleans/Jefferson Parish areas of Louisiana. Vet Adoptions does out of state adoptions on a case by case basis. In addition, Vet Adoptions assists Labs4Rescue, a non-profit agency in New England that finds homes for Labs and High Lab mixes in the New England area.

About Our Rescue Group:

Vet Adoptions assists participating veterinarians and the local community in finding homes for rescued or surrendered dogs and cats. We focus on rescuing animals from local shelters,individuals and veterinary offices that have no other alternative than euthanasia. We provide each animal veterinary care, including spay/neuter,foster care and assist in finding them permanent homes.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are featured on our website. We have lost many volunteers due to Hurricane Katrina, and are not able to do adoption days at local pet stores at this time. However, many of our pets are in foster homes, and arrangements will be made for you to visit one of our rescues, after an adoption application has been approved. If you would like to foster a pet or foster to adopt, please contact us, as we are in great need of foster homes!!!

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process includes an application, telephone interview, home visit and adoption fee. The adoption fee is a donation toward the pet's veterinary expenses. If you are interested in our foster to adopt program, please contact us for more information.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
