Mission: Bayou Rescue specializes in meeting needs of families with pets after disaster, in order to help families either reunite with their pets, or to enable them to keep their pets in the family.

This organization helps fill a really important need in the community!!! They have been so instrumental in helping out animals (and often their human families) impacted by large natural disasters as well as very local needs. They have come to the rescue of so many animals and provided loving care when that animal needs it most. Great organization!

Any pet owner nows that pets are part of the family and that they too need assistance in a crisis. Bayou Rescue makes sure that the family pet gets the care it needs when disaster strikes.
