​About us...


Founded in March, 2012, Ninna's Road to Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  We are located in BENTON, LA.  We do not publicize our address to protect our animals and our volunteers.  Adoptions are scheduled by appointment only with approved adopters.  Continue reading for instructions to apply. 


Our mission is to rescue and re-home small-breed dogs and a handful of cats.  Most of our animals come from kill-shelters in and around Northwest Louisiana.  Many come from abuse and neglect situations.  We provide vetting, socialization, and via our 40 plus EXPERIENCED volunteers, we provide healing of mind, body and soul.  Our goal is to find each animal the "right" home, not just "a" home.  We rescue and rehome approximately 300 animals each year!  Adopters are required to have an excellent pet ownership history and veterinary reference.  Click here to view our Adoptables.  To apply to adopt one of our dogs or cats, click on the respective links:

​We are HUGE advocates of spaying and neutering and responsible pet ownership.

We are different than any other shelter in this area as our shelter is a converted home to better prepare the animals for their forever home.  Our address is not publicized to protect our volunteers and pets.  If you are considering donating to our cause, please click on the "contact us" tab above or message us on our Facebook page.  Donors and approved adopters are given the address.
