  • 2. adopted from there

    by: firefly987567

    I know this place struggles more because of lack of funding. I adopted a dog there a couple of years ago and the place was very clean and the animals seemed to be well cared for. I went to a meeting few months prior to the dog murders at the shelter the speaker was asking for money for the shelter. He said the place is not big enough to house the strays of the whole parish and basically said don't call on them unless you really have to. They hated to see animals being killed because of lack of funding and space.

    Pros

    got an amazing puppy

    Cons

    not sure about the site

  • 7. Jury is Out

    by: SwampRat

    I know the new director and he has always been a straight shooter. ( no pun intended )\r\n\r\nHere's hoping that he has the support and backing of the upper command levels so he can implement and deliver the type of positive services he's known for in other endeavors he has undertaken.\r\n\r\nBEST OF LUCK, Chip . . . . for ALL our sakes -ESPECIALLY the animals !!!

    Pros

    New Leadership

    Cons

    Bad Reputation

  • 8. It varies

    by: Jentynes1

    I have been there a few times to check out the animals... on the upside they have a fairly clean facility and they always have different pets... but sadly, that's true b/c they kill them if not adopted w/in a certain time frame. They also euthanized almost 200 animals b/c of corona virus (think that was it) about 6 months ago. From what I hear, they could have vaccinated and cared for these animals- some they may have lost, but instead they just killed all of them... depressing. \nI've been there before when the staff was really helpful and there when they were super rude- so my thoughts on them really vary.

    Pros

    Usually clean

    Cons

    not always helpful and will kill animals

  • 9. DO NOT BRING ANIMALS HERE

    by: Tokyorose

    I found a dog that had been abused, a sweet dog, but scared of people. I took him home for the night but realized i couldn't keep him there. I made the mistake of bringing him there. I called the first couple of weeks until they lied to me and told me that once they decide to put a dog up for adoption, they don't euthanize them. They were friendly enough and seemed to care, but 3 months later they euthanized over 170 animals. I hope he got adopted before then. \n

    Pros

    None

    Cons

    everything

  • 11. Kill Shelter

    by: BeccaJ5955

    Tangipahoa Parish Animal Control is known among animal lovers in Tangipahoa Parish as a "kill shelter". The people that you have to deal with when you go there are very hateful and act like you're inconveniencing them. It's very hard to try to adopt an animal there as they are only open for adoptions Monday through Friday from 12:00 to 4:30. Everyone works nowadays so it's virtually impossible for individuals that work and are interested in adopting to adopt a pet at this place.

    Pros

    None

    Cons

    Too numerous to put into writing
