About Us
Tangi Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer dog shelter located in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana.
We are a group of concerned individuals who have come together to improve the lives of animals in our community. 
We believe these animals have a right to live in a world where love and compassion is the norm. 
THS works tirelessly
alongside law enforcement playing an active role in investigating cruelty case.
Most of our "adoptables" are from investigations we have been involved in.
Visit our Making a Difference tab if you'd like to read more. 
Our priority is to rescue animals that are victims of cruelty, neglect, and abuse. 

*** For this reason, we cannot accept all owner surrenders and homeless animals that are brought in ***
Please call to check for availability before making your way to the shelter: (985)419-9900
We work to shelter, heal, and rehome as many of these rescues as we can. Our organization provides rehab and refuge to these poor souls until a loving home can be found for them. Here's how we find them!

Our 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 first 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

For all animals adopted from Tangi Humane, spay or neuter of the adopted animal is mandatory. When we speak in schools we emphasize the importance of the spay/neuter process and provide examples of how quickly things can get out of control.
