Pontchartrain Humane Society provides foster care for abandoned or abused companion animals. We serve primarily the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama Gulf Coast region. We hold adoption fairs for fostered companion animals to find them permanent homes. We publicize and promote the urgent need for spaying and neutering companion animals to reduce the numbers of unwanted creatures abandoned and/or destroyed each year.
Pontchartrain Humane Society is a federal and Louisiana non profit corporation. All of our members are volunteers, and no salaries or commissions are ever paid to our members. We operate solely on donations and sponsorships.
- Fostering in private homes animals rescued from area animal shelters
- Fostering in private homes animals surrendered by their owners

While PHS has it's own rescue program with it's own policies and procedures, we believe strongly that each organization is autonomous and should have it's own structure and philosophy. As long as any rescue group adheres to the basic tenants of Rescue (defined as abandoned, abused, homeless or unwanted), they are free to utilize our web site and services. There is no charge for any assistance we provide.
