TPAS Offers Cat Adoption Special July 23-31

Following Hurricane Barry’s landfall on Saturday, July 13, 2019, the Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter has received over 180 animals. The majority of these animals were felines.

The veterinary needs of the transferred dogs were sponsored by People’s Drug Store in Houma, LA and Lab-Adore Retrievers Rescue in Vermont.
