Our mission is to provide care and treatment for homeless animals in need, and to find them suitable homes.  To help guide the public in education regarding the health and care of animals.  To raise awareness of the importance of heartworm prevention, spaying/neutering, vaccinations and the overall health and well being of animals.


The Natchitoches Humane Society is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill organization supported entirely by donations, sponsorship's and membership fees.   Come back often and we will share more of our efforts on behalf of our community as we work to make a better world for all of the animals. 

Volunteer with us!
