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.

Hey! I am a young neutered German Shepherd who was found at a Taco Bell in the 97-degree Texas heat. My rescuer says I'm good with kids and small dogs. I'll be heartworm tested soon. If you want to meet me, apply online for an appointment. I'll be on stray hold for a few weeks to make sure I don't have an owner, but you can visit me before then!

I am one sweet little lady! I am about 1.5 years old, and around 25 pounds. When I first came to Pet Savers with Soba and Coco (both happily adopted) I was very nervous. But now I had really come out of my shell. I get along very well with other dogs and every person I meet. I am house-trained, but may need some training to get used to a new schedule. If you want a cuddle bug, you've come to the right place. I'll be ready to go soon, but fill out an app today and we can meet!

Have you ever seen a black lab with a black tongue? That's me! I was found abandoned in Minden, very thin and unwell. I still have some weight to gain. Right now I am about 30 pounds, but I'll be a bit heavier when I get back to healthy weight. I am also around 1 year old so I may get a bit bigger overall. I am an absolute sweetheart and love to sit calmly and get pets. I get along great with kids and would love a home with a best friend! I do have some food aggression, possibly due to being so hungry when out on my own. Other than that, I am house-trained and ready to find a place full of love!

I've had a lot of visitors since then, but I'm still here. My face is white now, and my legs may shake a bit more than they used to, but I am still full of joy and smiles!

I would love a home all my own that wants to train me to do tricks! Pet Savers does not know if I am house-trained, since I was found abandoned and now live in the outdoor area of the shelter.

Tyson – Fee $90 (Male)

I got adopted as a puppy but was returned to Pet Savers when I was fully grown because I was too much dog for my adopters. I am a large very friendly dog. I get a little excited when I meet new people and like to jump up so I just need a little obedience training. You can tell from the photo that I'm a happy dog. I can't wait to meet you.

Maddie – Fee $125 (Female)

When the staff arrived at the shelter one morning they discovered me in the parking lot. I was in my kennel and I've got to tell you I was really scared. I was afraid no one was going to find me and I was going to be stuck in my kennel forever. Pet Savers took me in and now I'm safe. According to the note that was left with me I'm house-trained. I'm a Lab mix so I'm a large dog. I'm hoping to find an adopter who will never ever abandon me.

Miller – Fee $125 (Male)

I came here with Behr because our owners weren't able to keep us any longer. I am pretty big Lab mix. Quick facts - I get along with kids and some dogs, house-trained, travel well and walk on a leash. Fun fact - sometimes while riding in the car I will bark whenever we hit a bump in the road. I'm ready for a forever home I just need you to submit an application for me. Can't wait to meet you!

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.
