The Delta Humane Society operates in the North Louisiana delta area, one of the poorest areas in the nation. Almost a third of our population lives at or below the poverty level. We have none of the services many people take for granted such as public transportation, trash pick up, public high speed internet or animal control. There is no shelter here or in most of the adjoining parishes, an area of over 5000 sq. miles. There is no other 501c3 animal rescue operating in this area so we are the only resource for unwanted animals. Our efforts are focused on intaking animals in neglectful or harmful situations and restoring their health, both physical and mental so that they can be tranported to one of our partner rescues in other areas of the country. There, they have a much increased chance for adoption. We average having over 125 animals in foster including dogs, cats, horses and farm animals. We do all of this without a facility or any help from municipal sources.
Our mission is to promote responsible and compassionate treatment of all animals. We serve the Mississippi Delta region of Louisiana and work with rescue organizations throughout the country to achieve our mission.
