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.
