Juliet was one of 30+ dogs we rescued from a closing down shelter this summer. Since that time, Juliet has been looked over, watching all of her fellow kennel mates go into loving homes. Juliet’s gentle, quiet personality tends to put her in the shadows of her more outgoing, bubbly neighbors. Don’t let that full you! This gentle pup is nothing short of extraordinary! This four-year-old lady wants nothing more than to curl up on the couch with you and cuddle through an entire movie. She would be great in any family and gets along with other dogs, people and children. She’s potty-trained and does great on a leash!

Northshore Humane Society partnered with Mortgage Gumbo along with several other sponsors for their first annual Help-A-Hound event, and the result couldn’t have been better! On Saturday, November 2, 2019, ten dogs found happy homes at the inaugural event held at Barley Oak. Surrounded by food and drink specials, great music and Mandeville’s beautiful lakefront, many families found the perfect pup theyve been searching for and made sure they never spend another night in a shelter.
Thanks to the support and contributions from Mortgage Gumbo and long-time supporter, Jennifer Lacoste, adoptions were completed at reduced costs to the adopters. The shelter thanks our amazing community and sponsors for changing the lives of these dogs forever.

Meet Travis! He is now the longest resident at our shelter.  Travis, alongside 30+ other dogs, was rescued from a severe hoarding case. Although we were not allowed in the single-wide trailer, it was estimated that 100 dogs were residing inside. As you can imagine, their interaction with humans was minimal, causing extreme behavior challenges for our staff and potential adopters.  Two years later, we are so happy to report that the most severe of the group have found loving, patient forever homes. All of our focus has now turned to Travis.

Our staff has been working with Travis, walking him around our rescue to meet different kinds of people and recently he made it to his very first adoption event!We know there is someone out there – a patient, gentle and loving person who will give this amazing pup his second chance.

NHS Clear the Shelters Event One Day Only

Published by:

On Saturday, August 17th from 8: 00 AM – 6:00 PM, Northshore Humane Society will offer fee-waived adoptions for all adoptable dogs and cats at their rescue. The event will take place at the facility located at 20384 Harrison Ave. in Covington, LA. 
This one-day event is in partnership with NBC and Telemundo stations around the country. The Clear the Shelters national initiative includes over 900 shelters and 100,000 homeless pets. Northshore Humane Society’s Clear the Shelters adoption day will not only include fee-waived adoptions, but there will also be food trucks, animal –related vendors, activities and much more all on-site.

The event comes at a perfect time. The nonprofit, no-kill rescue is at maximum capacity with over 200 animals under its care. CEO Scott Bernier explains, “Our number of adoptions decreases during summer because of vacation occupying potential adopters and homeless animals are coming in faster than ever. We have kennels that are doubled, even tripled up”.
Each adopter will still go through the same application and adoption process and will need to purchase at least one month of prevention at the time of adoption. For more information, visit northshorehumane.org/adopt.
