Tangi Humane Society
Serving Tangipahoa Parish in Southeastern Louisiana
Tangi Humane Society is a group of concerned individuals who have come together to improve the lives of animals in our community. We love animals, and know that special bond that comes with loving and caring for an animal. We believe these animals have a right to live in a world where love and compassion is the norm.
THS works tirelessly to improve the lives of these animals by working closely with law enforcement investigating cruelty, abuse, neglect and by rescuing, sheltering . Our organization provides a refuge to abused and neglected animals until a loving home can be found for them. Because our main mission is to provide rehab and refuge to these animals, we are not always able to accept animals upon request.
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 deductible. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
