Stray Cafe 
by Take Paws Rescue


The Stray Cafè is located at 2730 Banks St. A new way of saving homeless dogs in New Orleans.

Take Paws Rescue pulls dogs from stressful, crowded shelters and puts them into foster homes where they socialize, relax and

become themselves again.

The problem is there are never enough foster homes!

Our Stray Café offers a calm and cozy space for our rescue pups to interact, play, and snuggle with guests and potential adopters.

It is also a place to sleep, eat and be loved until adoption. 


The Stray Cafe is on Facebook & Instagram!

The Need

Louisiana animal shelters are over-crowded.

They need community help! 


The ASPCA estimates that 1.2 million dogs are euthanized in shelters every year for lack of space, resources, and adoptive homes.

Our Stray Café provides a space to introduce dogs, from puppies to senior and special needs, to potential adopters, and match them with wonderful forever families.

Visitors who cannot or are not ready to adopt but love dogs  have a chance to spend quality time with four-pawed friends.

How To Help

Take Paws Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit, meaning your support not only helps the dogs but it is also tax deductible!
