Our mission is to rescue, re-home, or otherwise save as many dogs and puppies as possible from the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA).
Since 2010, FOTA has found forever homes for more than 5500 animals from the EBR Parish shelter, other surrounding shelters and through the FASS program.
Founded by Paula Schoen, the Dog Adoption House was a dream of FOTA. We noticed such a difference in the dogs when removed from the shelter that we wanted to open a house where an animal can show its true personality. In June, 2013, our dream came true with a grant from the Pennington Family Foundation. The house is open daily with volunteers helping us socialize the dogs. We have between 25-30 dogs at the house daily, ranging in size from small to medium to large with each group having their own play yard. The dogs are exercised hourly and given lots of love and attention. We think of the house as a doggie daycare. The dogs come to play for the day and then go back to their foster families or back to the shelter after a fun day away.
