Petra's Story...
Petra is a young female Catahoula or Catahoula mix. She was picked up as a stray and never claimed by her owner. She walks very well on a leash and is kennel trained. She was in a foster home for a few nights and she didn't have any accidents but can climb a chainlength fence so she was returned. Petra seems to be the alpha female but gets along with other dogs that are under her in the pack. We think she is around a year old. Dog adoption is 130.00 and includes spay/neuter, heartworm testing, age appropriate vaccines including a 3 year rabies, health exam, deworming, and microchipping. Any animal 6 months or older is considered an adult. No animals are vetted until they are adopted as we do not have a vet on staff. Once the animal is adopted we make a vet appointment, and they must go to be vetted before they can go home with an adopter. Call 985.651.7387 for more information regarding adoption.

Act quickly to adopt Petra. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petra, a Laplace Catahoula Leopard Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog for sale in Laplace, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog dog from a breeder in Laplace.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Laplace already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Laplace breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Catahoula Leopard Dog breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Laplace paves the way for another one to be saved.
