How do I become a volunteer?

How do I become a foster parent?
Prospective foster parents must complete a foster application and membership form and pay membership dues. The application will be thoroughly reviewed by the animal control supervisor before approval. Once approved the foster parent will foster the animal until it is either adopted or returned to the shelter due to the foster parent's inability to no longer foster.
What is the shelter's policy on the euthanasia of animals?
The St. Charles Humane Society takes every effort within its power to prevent euthanasia. There are situations, unfortunately, that warrant this procedure. Usually, unadoptable feral cats (that are unable to be located to a feral colony), overly aggressive animals, and extremely sick animals will be euthanized.
I'm searching for a specific breed of dog or cat. Can you call me if you have a one available?
Due to the shortage of staff, we are not able to maintain a list of those requiring a specific breed. We suggest you visit the shelter periodically.

The Humane Society conducts their pet adoptions every Saturday, except the first Saturday of the month. We usually bring at least three dogs for adoption and will be there from 11:00am to 4:00pm. We are located at the Petsmart at 6851 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Metairie, LA. See the link "Petsmart" for more information.

Anyone can sponsor a pet by simply paying the adoption fee of $80.00. The shelter staff will ensure that those adopting the pet will be approved before adoption.
