Precious Souls Canine Rescue and Sanctuary


We are a small 501c3 rescue dedicated to caring for elder, handicapped and hospice dogs (most from high kill shelters) and located in Hammond, LA.

Our mission is to provide a loving, compassionate home for senior dogs, supportive care for handicapped dogs, and a sanctuary for terminally ill dogs. We provide a safe, loving haven for all of our residents, plus quality vet care, love and compassion for the duration of their lives.

See us in the Baton Rouge Advocate and the Hammond Daily Star, and catch updates on our Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter! Visit our wish lists on Chewy and Amazon Smile, and find our ongoing campaigns on Cuddly! You can also visit our new merchandise store to purchase items such as shirts and mugs with our logo on them!

“She would move heaven and earth to let her precious dogs live long, happy, comfortable lives when otherwise they would have been put down long ago. Rarely, if ever, have we witnessed such obvious love and compassion for handicapped, elderly, and terminally ill dogs. Her unselfishness is evident as was the happiness of all her dogs!” Louisiana Pet Pantry

      Thank you, Jay. We are blessed to have wonderful supporters like you. The site needs a lot of work but it takes more time than I presently have. One day it will tell the beautiful stories of all our sanctuary babies.

    Diania, when I offered to help, I don’t think you had any idea what I had in mind, surprise!! You are an Angel sent to us Humans as well as all the FUR BABIES. Your experience in Nursing brought us together at a time when I was one scared new mom. You gave me peace. Seeing you giving our elderly, handicapped and hospice terminal dogs was no surprise to me. It’s you, your heart is huge, hopefully awareness of your wonderful Sanctuary will provide you and the Nations Fur Babies a huge amount of contributions to assist in the care of them until they go into Gods home. Then you willing receive more and start over and over again. What you have committed to do for them collectively we can raise the funds to keep the Sanctuary open for eons. Thank you so very much💞 May God continue to bless you and our Fur Babies, Amen with Love😊❤️

    My name is Lynnette Matusicky, I do transport for several rescues in South Louisiana and East Mississippi. I picked up some pups from Livingston Parish Animal Shelter last week. They have a small black and white dog they call her Sophie. She is about ten years old. She is heartworm negative . She only has 2 teeth. She is very scared and shy. I would sponsor her.
