Hi! My name is Trixie. I'm a 17-18 pound female chihuahua/terrier mix. I'm six to seven years old and full of spunk, too!
My favorite part of the day is when my foster mom comes home. I get so excited that I just have to dance with my whole body! Outside is still a little scary, so short walks are fine with me. I like meeting all my new neighbors though, people and animals alike. I get along with everyone, but nothing beats the pleasure of hanging out at home on the couch with my favorite humans, for some cuddles and maybe a good tummy rub.
I'm also very food motivated and eager-to-please. My foster mom even calls me a canine Einstein! I'm already learning to sit and stay, so the sky's the limit when it comes to teaching me new tricks. If you've got the time for training, I've got what it takes to perform!
I can't wait to be a part of a real, forever family with a couch they'll let me call my own! If you think you would like to meet me, please call 225-270-5653, or better yet, email sguidry41@cox.net.

You might also be able to catch Neisha at our Dog Adoption House at 8476 Highland Rd! The hours are M-F: 11:30-5pm / Sat & Sun: 11-3pm! However, be sure contact Neisha's foster home first at to make they will be there on that day.

We have an application process to ensure that each dog and family is the right match. All applications must be approved prior to adoption. If you would like to start the application process to find out if you would be a good match, below are the instructions to our online application.

Your completed application is auto-emailed to our organization for review once you hit submit. Please also inform the foster once you have submitted. All questions MUST be answered. If a question doesn't apply, just put "NA". You will receive an auto-reply thanking you for submitting your application. Please allow us some time for review!

About Friends of the Animals Baton Rouge

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of the Animals in Baton Rouge, LA is a non-profit animal welfare organization working towards our goal of finding loving homes for the homeless dogs and puppies from the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA).

Our mission is to rescue, re-home, or otherwise save as many dogs and puppies as possible from the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA).

Since starting in 2010, FOTA has found forever homes for more than 2000 animals from the EBR Parish shelter and PASS program.

Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) is a Friends of the Animals program. We work with the public in East Baton Rouge Parish to determine and implement the best solution for them to keep pets from entering the shelter. The program was created to fill in that gap by helping the public find resources to help them keep their pets or pets they have found out of the shelter. PASS offers resources such as pointing people to low cost medical options; help with behavioral resources; advocating on their behalf; lost and found resources or re-homing their pet with ad placement. PASS does not have a facility to house the pet during the re-homing process, nor does PASS have fosters, therefore owners or finders must be able to foster the pet through the re-homing process.

Our Adoption Process...

You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt. We can email you an Adoption Application or you can fill it out in person at The Adoption House or at FOTA sponsored off-site adoption events. There are no refunds on adoptions after 3 days.

We encourage you to bring your whole family, especially your family dog, to meet the dog you wish to adopt. It is important for you to realize that it may take a few days for your new dog and any other dogs in your home to settle in.
We have a trainer to help if you have any questions or issues. It is better to ask a question and initiate any necessary action rather than to allow a problem to continue unchecked. If after a length of time, you feel you must return the dog, we ask that you give us at least three days advance notice as we must have a foster home available in which to place the dog. None of our dogs go back to the shelter.

As our foster dogs live with us, we get to know their personalities and temperaments. We make every effort to find the right match between our dogs and their new families so that it can be a good and rewarding experience for all involved.

The adoption fee is $150 for puppies under 4 months of age and $125 for all dogs over 4 months of age. This includes the following: spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, de-worming, microchipping and heartworm testing.
