Northside Humane Society was founded in 2008 and since its inception we have rescued thousands of companion animals from high kill shelters and other dangerous situations. "Our purpose is reflected in our mission statement. Northside Humane Society will provide shelter, medical care, and homes for homeless, neglected, and abused animals and educate the public about the importance of spay and neuter."
All though our main focus is East Baton Rouge Parish we also provide help to surrounding parishes. Northside Humane Society offers and alternative to euthanasia for members in the community who are no longer able to keep their pet(s) as well as taking animals from kill shelters and placing them for adoption. We also help members of the community who keep their pet(s) who may be facing hard times. We do this by either holding them in our foster homes or if medical or food is needed we also help with that. We feed several feral (wild) colonies of cats as well as feral (wild) dogs that run loose that neither we or animal control has been able to catch. We rely on dononations to provide food and medical care for the animals being housed in our foster homes as well as the animals in the community.
