Families, children, and dogs

Small children (5 years and under) and small dogs don’t always mix and is one of the top reasons dogs are surrendered to kill and no-kill shelters in the United States. As a result, Pet Savers does not typically adopt dogs to families with very young children unless the circumstances are fitting.

Driving in from a long distance or live out of state?

We do make adoptions to areas outside of Shreveport/Bossier and out-of-state; however, we do not ship or transport at this time. Whether you’re local, out-of-state, or driving in from a long-distance and wish to apply to adopt one of our animals, you can fill out our online Adoption Agreement. Please indicate which animal or animals you are interested in. Please be advised that the pet you are interested in may or may not be available at the time you make application. Applications are subject to approval and veterinary references will be checked. The animals we rescue are like our own pets and we have huge emotional and financial investments in each and every one of them. We are their voice and as such, look for forever homes where they will be loved and cared for as they are at Pet Savers. If you’re not approved through Pet Savers, please consider visiting your local kill-shelter where you will save a life or go to our Pet Savers of Shreveport Facebook page where we feature courtesy postings for dogs not in our shelter who need new homes. Thank you.

Annie – Fee $150 (Female)

I don't understand why I was left tied to the Pet Savers gate for who knows how long. But the people here at Pet Savers have taken me in and are hoping to find me a home that won't abandon me that way ever again. I'm an adorable and affectionate puppy that is about 20-30 pounds right now. I have quite a ways to grow and will be a large dog when full grown. I love toys, pets, and playing. My situation has not dampened my loving spirit one bit! You should fill out an application and come see me real soon!

I am not housetrained and would need a home that can help me learn. I get along with kids and dogs well, but I've never met a cat. Once I'm up to date, you should come meet me!

Jefferson – Fee $150 (Male)

I am an adorable 25-30 pound mix, possibly pug because of my short snout. I was found on Jefferson Paige Rd. My finder and Pet Savers diligently searched for my previous owner, but no one came forward. Now I am on the hunt for a new home. I am a little shy and still getting used to the shelter life. I know some commands and once I live with you for a while, I may need help with separation anxiety. I'm good with kids and other dogs, but have not met a cat before. I love riding in the car and going for walks. won't you come see if I am the dog for you?

Tucker – Fee $200 in foster home (Male)

Can you imagine a Labradoodle mixed with a German Shepherd?! That's me! My previous owner was really sad to give me up but I did not do well around her toddler. I am also very nervous around new people and I am currently in foster care with the Pet Savers director. I am 4 years old, neutered and housetrained. I am a really energetic dog who would probably do well with a youthful, active couple and another dog my size. You need to walk me every day. I have a few bad habits, but I am a good dog most of the time and I am housetrained. No cats, no small dogs, no small children.

I get along with female dogs and kids if they don't mind my energy. My previous owner says I love kisses and learning tricks, and if you need a guard dog to let you know when strangers are around, I'm your dog!

Spot – Fee $125 (Male)

I was found in the Mansfield Road Wal-mart parking lot on June 17, 2020. Pet Savers posted my photo and information on Facebook but no one came forward to claim me. Since no one claimed me I am now available for adoption. I appear to be a young and very shy Hound mix. I'm looking for someone who can help me work on my trust issues and most importantly will never abandon me.

Jed and Jimbo – Fee $150 for Both (Male)

We're a couple of Lab/Hound mixes. We're just the right age if you are looking for a dog that you can train. Not to brag but we have a really unique colored coat. We'll be here hanging out waiting to meet you. We've spent our entire life together so we need to be adopted as a pair.
