Rescue Organizations



Save an Angel

Save-An-Angel is a New Orleans based, registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, dedicated to curing canine cancers starting with lymphoma – the most common and deadly.  Additionally, we rescue, vet, rehabilitate and transport animals from high kill shelters and off the streets in southern Louisiana into loving forever homes.


WEIMARANER RESCUE of the South is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Our priority is to rescue Weimaraners who find themselves in animal controls and high-kill shelters in Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Tennessee, Louisiana, and Georgia. We also offer "courtesy posts" for owners who feel they can no longer provide a home for their Weimaraner. All Weimaraners in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical issues they might have, including, but not limited to heartworm disease, orthopedic concerns, vision issues, and anything else needed. Our efforts are funded by adoption fees and donations from "Weim-loving" people like you.

Creole Poodle Rescue

The Creole Poodle Club of New Orleans, Inc. is a not for profit organization that was established in 1956. It was started by a group of poodle enthusiasts who wanted to promote the breed. Most of our original members were involved in showing dogs, but as time has passed the Club has grown to include rescue and public education activities. We rely totally on volunteers who foster the dogs in their homes throughout mostly southeast Louisiana. We rescue poodles and poodle mixes from kill shelters that were either owner surrendered or found as strays. We also take in owner surrenders direct to our organization (no aggressive dogs please). We try to match the home with the personality of the dog. Our volunteers also do vet reference checks and home visits before the dog is placed. We are responsible for making sure the dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD on all shots, given a heart worm test and are started on heart worm prevention, before they go to their new homes.


As a nonprofit organization dedicated to the elimination of animal suffering, we have been committed to serving the needs of the people and animals in New Orleans and across the region for more than 125 years.

Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) mission is to rescue homeless and unwanted companion animals through sheltering and adoption into responsible, loving homes, while advancing community education and services to ensure responsible pet ownership so that in the future companion animals are no longer in need of being rescued.

Our vision is to be a leading expert in the field of animal welfare so that our community and its animals are served through compassion and diligence. We envision a future where the overpopulation of homeless companion animals is eliminated and every adoptable animal is a valued member of a responsible home.
