About Us

We are the Natchitoches Humane Society, founded in 1972, in Natchitoches, Louisiana. We rescue abandoned, neglected and abused animals and provide medical treatment, spaying and neutering, socialization, training and love while they are waiting to be placed in their forever home. Our rescue facility is housed on the grounds of the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center, and the dogs housed on-site are cared for by inmates selected specifically for this job. They have play yards, and a large area where they are walked and given basic obedience training by the inmate(s) caring for them. We have a sick room, as well as a bathing area, and two quarantine kennels. We do not house cats at the facility, but do provide rescue for cats through fosters. In an attempt to reduce the number of unwanted pets, we provide assistance to low-income residents through our Spay Natchitoches program. It is our goal to reduce the population of unwanted animals in Natchitoches Parish through adoption, as well as through spaying and neutering. It is our hope that our parish will become the example of what can be done when people work together to achieve the goal of a better life for the animals that live here.
