You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

DHS does not have a faclity. All of our animals are housed in foster homes. Therefore, we require having a completed adoption application on file before we ask our foster families to rearrange their schedules for a meet and greet or answer individual inquiries. And, please be patient, we are staffed only by volunteers. It may be a few days before you hear from us.  

  Celie was pulled from a city holding pen. This is not the same as a shelter. Dogs are picked up and held for the required 5 to 7 days and are then euthanized. There are no advertisements or public adoptions or visits by the general public. It is perfectly legal in Louisiana. Celie was ready to give birth so a lady that works with the ACO managed to talk him into releasing her to DHS. She gave birth to 7 babies about 8 days after coming to the DHS foster farm in August 2012. She was a great mom and all of her babies survived and have been adopted.

 Celie had probably been surviving on her own most of her short life. She was very fearful and submissive to humans although she has bonded with her foster mom. She will take a lot of time and patience to win her trust, but it can be done. And you will have a devoted and affectionate companion.
 She recently went in to our vets to be spayed. It was her first trip off the farm for almost 10 months and we were very worried that she might become fearful and withdrawn again. But our vets said that after an initial period to get used to the noise and bustle of the vet clinic, she became fairly friendly and loving. So she will be able to bond with a new family.

 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.
 Since all of our animals are housed with fosters, we ask that you submit a completed application before  we answer individual inquiries. Submitting an application never obligates you to adopt but we will have a better understanding of your needs so that we can better answer your questions.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process has 3 steps. First we ask that you complete an application at
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.
