SOS Pets of Ouachita

$6,651 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 16 months
If you've been to the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter, you may have left in tears.  The inherent design issues in the 1950's structure are not at all pet-friendly.  There has been no funding for a new shelter.     All of that is about to change!   We are a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit group that is raising funds to build a new shelter.  The facility will be built in phases, as money becomes available.    

We won't have a firm budget in place until the site survey and soil analysis are completed.  At that time, we will then share the details of each phase and associated costs.  We started with a $10K goal to get the ball rolling, and we just increased it to $250K, since that is a likely ballpark figure to see some construction activity take place!

We will sincerely appreciate any donation, no matter how small or large, and the animals will love you!

Our website is almost complete, so please watch for it at!   We will have more options to donate at that time.

May God Richly Bless You!

Update: We have received our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, retroactive to our date of incorporation, 2/3/17. All donations are 100% tax-deductible, and 100% of these donations will go to our capital campaign to build a new shelter! We have our tentative Board of Directors in place as well as a host of energetic volunteers ready to go! Our first team meeting to get organized and begin planning specific fundraisers (in addition to grant applications, corporate contribution requests, etc.) will be held 2/28. Site surveys and soil samples (funded by the Ouachita Parish Police Jury) are underway. The results will allow us to develop a budget. The wheels are turning! Jump onboard and help us get there! Any donation of any size is appreciated! Thank you and God Bless!
