The Coalition of Louisiana Animal Advocates (COLAA) and the Louisiana Animal Welfare Alliance (LAWC) have formed a first-ever statewide Certified Animal Rescue Organization Program program for the state of Louisiana.
This program is designed for private companion animal rescue organizations operating in the state of Louisiana only.
Download the Certified Animal Rescue Organization Application and Checklist. Please have your organization’s approved representative complete the application and provide all requested documentation that is requested on the checklist. Follow the instructions to submit your Certified Animal Rescue Organization application.
After your application is received, you will be contacted by a COLAA/LAWC Alliance representative to discuss your application and request any additional information. Once approved, you will receive your packet with a welcome letter, COLAA & LAWC Certificate of Certification, a copy of the Humane Society of the United States Rescue Group Best Practices Handbook, and a copy of COLAA’S Guide to Basic Animal Cruelty and Protection Laws for Louisiana.
The certification program is free and all animal rescue organizations operating in the state of Louisiana are encouraged to apply!
