The Louisiana Animal Shelter Registry (R.S. 3:2366) was established January 2017. The Louisiana state veterinarian will establish and maintain the Louisiana Animal Shelter Registry enabling the task force to carry out its duties (R.S. 3:2364). All public animal shelters owned and operated, or designated for the purpose of impoundment of animals by any parish, municipality, or other subdivision of the state, may register their agency/shelter on or before the first day of February of each calendar year.
