BATON ROUGE, LA - Adopt the King or Queen of your heart at our national pet adoption weekend! Rescue Rehome Repeat of South Louisiana, formerly known as SPCA of Livingston, will be holding a pet adoption event on Saturday, February 17 and Sunday February 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will take place at the PetSmart on Millerville Rd in Baton Rouge right off of I-12. Bring your family out and meet all of the sweet, furry friends looking for their forever homes. There will be a variety of cats, puppies and adult dogs.

Adoption screening applications are required and adoption donations cover everything from spay/neuter surgeries to age-appropriate vaccines. Each adopter will receive 30 days free pet insurance, puppy pack, a free bag of food, and money-saving coupons from PetSmart, while supplies last.

Rescue Rehome Repeat of South Louisiana is dedicated to finding forever homes for abandoned and displaced animals while educating the public to be more responsible pet owners. At RRR of South LA we have seen it all when it comes to man’s best friend. But despite the misfortunes these animals have endured, our commitment to them remains steadfastly clear: to provide loving, emotionally stable, nurturing foster care for them while they wait for their for their forever families.

Through no fault of their own, our animals found themselves in kill shelters or other homeless situations. We are dedicated to making a positive difference in these animals’ lives from the moment they enter our foster program. Our goal is to help them in every way we can…emotionally, socially, physically…so that the transition into their forever homes will be as smooth as possible. We strive to match our pets with the best family possible, working through as many applications and interviews as necessary to find a home that offers the most fulfilling, enriched life.

Rescue. Rehome. Repeat! of South Louisiana is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The mission of the organization is to raise awareness of the plight of animals in southeastern Louisiana, to teach and foster good pet parenting practices as well as to promote spay and neuter programs to help alleviate the need to destroy healthy and adoptable pets. Rescue. Rehome. Repeat! of South Louisiana takes in owner surrender animals through their Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender Program and from kill shelters within Livingston and the immediate surrounding parishes by direct request of shelter directors as space permits.

The adoption event will be held in Baton Rouge at 1653 Millerville Rd. on Saturday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
