The Stray Cafe is on Facebook!


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 will offer a calm and cozy space for our rescue pups to interact, play, and snuggle

with guests and potential adopters.

It will also be a place to sleep, eat and be

loved until adoption. 


Visitors will have a place to unwind with great dogs and enjoy coffee and snacks.

You might even meet your next best friend!


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 will provide 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 will have a chance to spend quality

time with four-pawed friends.


We have secured a location for our café with the purchase of a building at 2730 Banks Street in

New Orleans thanks to some of our executive staff.


The building and outside space will need a lot of work to get it in shape for our dogs and our guests, and we need all the help we can get in the form of monetary donations, supply/building material donations, and volunteers to do the work.



We need donations in order to turn this gracious gift of an empty building, into a life-saving community center for animal rescue.

Take Paws Rescue is a volunteer-run 501c3 nonprofit, which means that every dollar we take in goes right back into the dogs

and is a tax deduction for you!

We believe that every dog deserves a home.

Your donation will allow us to save more lives and offer fun and a place to snuggle for both dogs

and humans.

We also desperately need volunteers to help us with this project and the residents of the Stray Cafe!

Please see the events on our Facebook Page to sign up for our next Stray Cafe Voluneer Orientation!
