I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Helen is a wonderful special needs dog. She is both deaf and blind, but has a wonderful quality of life. She is afraid of nothing and barrels her way through life with carefree abandon. She plays, explores and enjoys life to the fullest with few limitations. In fact, most people don't recognize her handicaps at first. She walks great on a leash, is perfectly housetrained (and barks to go out) and loves to snooze in her crate. She makes friends in the dog park with most dogs but occasionally plays too hard and the other dogs avoid her. Helen was in pretty bad shape when we found her, abandoned at a local creek, so her foster mom has let her get a bit too heavy. She needs to have her food limited because she loves her food, treats and toys. Helen is a great dog! Her handicaps are congenital.

The DHS organized in November 2008 to care for the unwanted and neglected animals of Northeastern Louisiana. We are funded only by donations. We ARE making a difference but we still have a LOT to do....
Rescue Group Info...
DHS promotes the compassionate treatment of all animals. In our area of Louisiana, there is no shelter, animal control or another animal welfare organization. We are their only advocates and we need YOUR help to make a difference.
As we have no shelter, all of our adoptable animals are housed with families. Please email email@example.com to arrange a meet and greet..
Our adoption process has 3 steps. First we ask that you complete an application at http://www.thedeltahumanesociety.com/user/login?refererPageID=1359&keyID=1105&referer=/forms/form.phpQu8formid=1105Am1requirelogin=Yes
Once the application has been completed, we ask to do a brief, informal home visit. Once that has been completed, and you have been approved, you will be able to take the pet home for a sleepover that can last for up to 10 days. If you are satisfied that the pet is compatible with your family members, other pets and lifestyle, we will make the adoption final. Our adoption fees vary but the average is $250.00. The pet will have been spayed or neutered, have completed all of his vaccinations and be ready to go to your home. Finally, you must sign a contract that if, at any time during the life of the pet, your situation changes, it must be returned to us or we must give approval if you have a potential home. You can get more details on our web site.
