The St. Charles Parish Department of Animal Control
helps to enforce local animal cruelty laws
and provides a shelter for homeless pets within in the parish.
Animal Control works closely with the St. Charles Parish Humane Society to evaluate and adopt out healthy dogs and cats. The Humane Society raises money to provide shelter animals with medical care and other health-related needs. The Humane Society, in coordination with the animal shelter staff, also provides a variety of programs to promote pet spay/neutering awareness.
The adoption fee is $80 for all animals, which includes spaying or neutering.
- See and adopt pets during normal business hours at the shelter, or view and inquire about them online. The shelter is now open every first and third Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. beginning Feb. 16, 2013.
- The Humane Society shows adoptable dogs at PetSmart, 6851 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie Saturdays from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. (except first Saturdays of the month). Adoptable cats are available at that location daily during regular business hours.
- Contact the shelter at (985) 783-5010 for more information on volunteer time, talents or money to support homeless animals in our area.
