About the Jefferson SPCA
The Jefferson SPCA promotes animal welfare in Jefferson Parish and we support the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter, aiding in their lifesaving mission. Our programs prevent and address animal cruelty and provide much-needed medical treatment, rescues, and ultimately adoptions for homeless pets. We boast (we can’t help it; we’re proud) one of the most ambitious spay and neuter programs in the country and are committed to the treatment and eradication of heartworm in pets that would otherwise be euthanized. We rely on your support to continue these vital programs and to save and improve the lives of Louisiana’s kindest and furriest residents.
