Best Friends Animal Society
Saving lives in Grant Parish
You can make a difference in the lives of animals in your community.
Last year, hundreds of thousands of loving pets, like the ones here in Grant Parish, were killed in shelters around the country, just because they didn’t have safe places to call home.

We’re teaming up with caring community members like you to change that.

The Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office is excited to announce a new partnership with Best Friends to save the lives of homeless dogs in our area. Best Friends Animal Society is working to make communities all over the country happier and healthier for pets and their people, including right here in Grant Parish.

Right now, we’re focusing our efforts on helping dogs around Grant Parish through adoptions, fostering, transport of dogs to safety and local advocacy efforts. Whether you want to open your home to a foster pet or work on changing local laws to help pets, we’d love for you to join us.

Grant Parish

Adopt to help save lives

When you adopt an animal who’s been patiently waiting for a place to call home, you’re not only saving a life.

You’re making space in the shelter for other homeless dogs in Grant Parish and giving them a chance to grow, thrive and find families of their very own. You might not feel like a hero, but to one animal, you’re the entire world.

Foster: open your heart and home

When you foster a dog in Grant Parish, you’re not only providing a safe and loving place for a pet to learn and grow, you’re helping to make room for more animals in the shelter.

Fostering an adoptable animal in your home, even for just a few nights, is a great way to help save a homeless pet’s life. Best Friends is in need of foster homes to temporarily care for dogs and puppies while they await transport to an adoptive home.

Providing love and a safe space for them is all that is required. All supplies (including food, leashes and a crate) and medical care will be provided. Plus, you’ll have 24/7 access to support and mentorship while the dog is in your care.

For questions about fostering, please contact us directly at fostergrantparish@bestfriends.org.
