Rescue Rehome Repeat of South Louisiana, formerly known as SPCA of Livingston, will hold a pet adoption on Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m each day.

The two-day event will take place at the PetSmart on Millerville Road in Baton Rouge, just off I-12.

There will be a variety of cats, kittens, puppies, and adult dogs looking for their forever homes. Cats and kittens will be inside the store Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, while dogs and pups will be available under the tent Saturday and Sunday. People will be able to meet all of the animals before adopting them.

Adoption screening applications are required, and adoption donations cover everything from spay/neuter surgeries to age-appropriate vaccines. Each adopter will receive 30 days of free pet insurance, a puppy pack, a free bag of food, and money-saving coupons from PetSmart, while supplies last.

Rescue Rehome Repeat of South Louisiana is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness of the plight of animals in southeastern Louisiana, to teach and foster good pet parenting practices, and to promote spay and neuter programs to help alleviate the need to destroy healthy and adoptable pets.

The organization takes in owner surrender animals that are headed to an animal control facility through their “Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender” program or from kill shelters located in Livingston, East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge and the Ascension parishes.

The organization tries to match pets with the best family possible, working through as many applications and interviews as necessary to find a home that offers the most fulfilling, enriched life.
