Support THS

The Tangi Humane Society, is completely funded by private donations. We are a 501(c) (3) non profit,all volunteer organization and all donations are tax deductable according to the laws of the IRS.

Your donations support our daily work to improve the lives of animals in Tangipahoa Parish through animal cruelty, neglect and fighting investigations, sheltering and foster programs.  Unfortunately we can not take in every animal upon request from the public.

Tangi Humane Society is separate and apart from the Tangipahoa Parish Animal Control Shelter which is completely funded by the parish.  The Tangi Humane Society is not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) of which is headquartered in Washington, D.C.  The Tangi Humane Society is like many, many small humane societies and animal rescue groups across the United States.  We are a group of concerned individuals that have come together to try to better the lives of animals in our community.  We are a group of individuals that love animals and know the special bond that comes in loving and caring for an animal; a group that is concerned for the well being of animals in our community and their right to live in a world where love and compassion is what fills their lives rather than a world of cruelty and neglect; a group that gives refuge to abused and neglected animals until a good home can be found for them.


MISSION Statement

Stop Cruelty

We investigate and work with local authorities to enforce laws to protect animals from abuse and neglect.  Animal cruelty can be a felony in Louisiana.  We actively work to aid in the prosecution and punishment of animal abusers.

Restore Health

When animals come into the care of Tangi Humane Society, they are 1st quarantined and receive appropriate veterinary care.  We provide a safe, clean environment so they can heal, regain their strength and ultimately find new, loving homes.

Loving Homes

When our rescues are ready for adoption, we host Pet Adoption Days in the community so people can meet and possibly adopt our rescued pets.  Applications are taken and carefully considered before any animal is adopted.

Teach Respect

Tangi Humane Society Volunteers speak in local elementary schools on the importance of humane animal care and responsible pet ownership.  They also work with local community groups to raise funds and awareness to help end the cycle of animal neglect and pet overpopulation.

Stop Overpopulation

We work with local veterinarians to bring low-cost spay/neuter services to rural parts of the Parish to help curb the pet overpopulation problem that is so prevalent in our Parish.
