We are ready for 2018 and the opportunities and challenges it will present and have a new way you can help year round.
Introducing our monthly donation program! High kill shelters, animal hoarders and animal abusers are a sad reality we do our best to mitigate. With monthly recurring donations, we are better able to anticipate how many animals we can help all year long. Sign up for a monthly donation and you’ll not only feel good about saving lives, you’ll also receive some serious lagniappe—stickers, mugs, tote bags, or even a home cooked dinner with our rescue team.

#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. If you would like to donate to Zeus Rescues, just go to our Donations page to learn of the various ways you can support us. A big THANK YOU from all of us and the animals in our rescue program.
We successfully raised funds to transport a plane full of cats and dogs from Puerto Rico which was devastated in Hurricane Maria. The plane transport arrived in Florida on Nov. 2 and our transport driver met them and drove the full van back to New Orleans the morning of Nov. 3 where we began the intake process. Our numbers are not 100% as some of the animals that were supposed to get on the plane were not able to. The owners and shelter supporters had no fuel to meet the transport.
This was the 6th plane of animals to transport off the island on a larger scale. It took us about 2+ weeks to put this puzzle together to get the animals into safety. Some are shelter animals, some were born on the street (lots of puppies!!!) and some were owner surrenders…which was heart breaking. They had to make the hardest decision to put their family pets on a plane knowing they had such minimal supplies for survival for themselves. All of this is documented on our social networks.
View local coverage about the 60+ animals that arrived in our rescue from Puerto Rico this week! All donations are greatly appreciated. Most of the larger pet foundations are tapped out after 3 hurricanes in a row. We had a grant cover some of the transport and now need help with the medical costs…All those puppies will need full vetting. Please consider a donation via www.zeusrescues.org/donations

Yes…not just one but two Hurricanes. Harvey and Irma. Never a dull moment during Hurricane Season! We are so grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from friends all over the country and volunteers who have helped in our no-kill the shelter!
Our new friends in Virginia, A Forever Home Rescue Foundation arrived late Friday the 8th with two cargo vans. They them filled to capacity with cleaning supplies, food, toys and so much more. We are so grateful for this group! The generosity from their community to help was overwhelming! Ask anyone who packed or unpacked the vans! They transported several shelter animals to their facility! We were thrilled to pass on some of the donations to the Low Cost Animal Clinic here in New Orleans to support their mission benefitting animals in our community.
Later today we are expecting a transport from Livingston Parish Animal Shelter….17 puppies!
We will need lots of loving foster and forever homes! We await transports of Irma rescues.
CBS News also gave us some great coverage this week! Each life matters!
We have updated our Amazon Wish List and our current needs are monetary to cover spay/neuter/medical needs prior to adoption.
