We have some pretty spectacular animals for adoption at ARNO!  Our dogs and cats are shown love and treated as if they are our own while they are in our care.  We want to make sure each and every adoption is a good fit and that our animals truly find their forever homes when they leave our shelter.

Please note: ARNO is open to the public from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Please stop by during those hours to meet our dogs and cats and to inquire about adopting or schedule an appointment during other times with adopt@animalrescueneworleans.org. Some of our animals are in foster homes, so we must schedule appointments to have potential adopters meet those pets. Thanks for your cooperation!


To apply to adopt or foster an animal from ARNO, please fill out the proper application here:

DOG Adoption/Foster Application

CAT Adoption/Foster Application

If you have questions regarding a specific animal or want more information on adopting or fostering, please email adopt@animalrescueneworleans.org. Our adoption and foster application process includes a vet check, home check and approval from your landlord if you are a renter.  All family members in your household must also be on board with the decision to foster or adopt.  If you currently have pets, we will schedule a meet and greet to make sure everyone gets along.

Please, adopt a pet today. Adopting any pet, even a pet not from our shelter, helps make space for more rescues! To see photos and descriptions of dogs and cats for adoption at shelters in your area, go to Petfinder.com and www.AdoptAPet.com.


If you are interested in one of our pets, please fill out an application above. Foster homes provide food, love and kindness. We provide all medical care.  Foster homes are expected to bring their foster pets to adoption events. Foster homes socialize the pet so they are ready for their life in a permanent home.

Remember, when you adopt ANY pet from a shelter you are making space for another pet to be put up for adoption. If you cannot find a pet among our ARNO rescued pets, please visit your local shelter today and adopt… and ask your shelter to make room for an adoptable, healthy pet from Louisiana.
