A small no-kill nonprofit, Pet Savers Inc. has been an alternative to the city facilities for years. Despite their limited capacity, Pet Savers partners with a large foster and volunteer network to turn away as few of the calls they get as possible. Pet Savers works on a case by case basis to try and assist families in the Shreveport area that have fallen on times in an effort to prevent homelessness, neglect, and surrender by connecting them with the proper resources.
The Shreveport Bossier Animal Rescue is a small, feline-only shelter serving the metropolitan area of Shreveport and Bossier. While SBAR refers all cases of feral cats and strays to the municipality animal service, they provide veterinary care to all those case they do rehabilitate and rehome. By working with the city shelter, the Shreveport Bossier Animal Rescue is able to alleviate overcrowding and facilitate huge adoption events in order to reduce rates of unnecessary euthanasia.
This large no-kill shelter, Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, operates on the generosity of donations and volunteer time in its mission to reduce shelter overcrowding and rates of homelessness, abuse, and euthanasia. HSNWLA is constantly working on creating community programs and initiatives such as school education programs to learn about violence against animals and responsible pet ownership. When they are not fostering these programs, they host several fundraising events throughout the year like car washes, and put on adoption specials benefiting animals that suffer from special needs or breed discrimination.
