Mission Statement and History: Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO) is a volunteer-based organization created and dedicated to the rescue and aid of abandoned and homeless animals founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as the first no-kill shelter to serve the New Orleans area. ARNO responds to the immediate aid of those in need of medical care especially those most at risk: the old, very young, sick, neglected, abused or deprived of love. ARNO supports the foster, adoption and reunion of pets with caretakers; as well as spaying and neutering of all companion animals. Since March of 2006 ARNO has rescued and rehomed over 11,000 animals. ARNO has taken in more than 1,000 cats and dogs since March of 2020 due to the pandemic, almost twice as many as the same time the year before. ARNO volunteers have worked frontline distributing pet food and helping people keep their pets through the ARNO Covid Community Outreach. Now due to Hurricane Ida we have taken in so many animals who have extraordinary medical needs and we continue to pull animals from LaFourche and St John Parishes as well as from local shelters.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
