Animal Helper is an all-volunteer organization to help pets and their owners in the Greater New Orleans. Animal Helper was set up to help animals and their owners during this unique time in history after Katrina. Every living, breathing creature, no matter how big or small, was affected by Katrina. Many owned animals are still roaming the streets since Katrina. Some owned animals have turned feral. We have been feeding several dogs for several years now. We Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) feral cat colonies. We also feed feral cat colonies. We feed stray dogs and feral dog packs in New Orleans East. We provide dog/cat food and animal supplies to underprivileged pet owners in New Orleans East. We also provide food to resident feeders. We rescue stray dogs, and the occasional cats. We then rehabilitate them in order to find them loving permanent homes.

All of our animals are in foster homes in the Greater New Orleans area. All of our animals have been temperament tested prior to entering our organization. We are an all breed rescue. We have teamed up with a local high-kill shelter in the area. We are working with them to reduce their euthanasia rates. Other animals are found roaming the streets as strays. Occasionally we accept owner surrenders but this is rare.
