How You Can Donate to ARNO

Official PayPal Seal

ARNO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible to the full extent the law allows.


Make a Donation

Make a gift today to Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO). You can designate in the 'notes' section where you want your gift to go. If you do not designate a specific animal, fund, or area where your donation is to be used it will be applied to our general fund, which includes shelter, food, medicine, vet care, and surgeries. There are no salaries, as we are all volunteer. So know that 100% of your gift truly benefits the animals in our care. PayPal accepts all major credit cards as well as electronic checks, and you don't need a PayPal account to donate. Rest assured that your gift and personal information is totally secure when you make a donation using PayPal. 

Sanctuary Memberships

ARNO Sanctuary Members are a special category of donors that help us sustain our work, and keep ARNO alive. Your monthly gift will allow us to more accurately budget what we can do for rescued companion animals. Pledge a monthly donation of any amount which will be automatically billed to your credit card, or debited from your checking account, as per your billing instructions. ARNO is an all-volunteer no-kill triage shelter, so 100% of your donation goes to the animals... shelter, food, medical care, vaccinations, etc.

Enter in the amount you wish to donate monthly for the next twelve months, and click "BECOME A SANCTUARY MEMBER" and voila!
