Staff Pick of the Month

As a no-kill rescue, our staff learns a lot about the personalities of each of our dogs and cats, naturally growing closer to them the longer they are with us. Our Staff Pick of the Month not only allows our team a way to express their love for a particular animal, it also gives potential adopters a more in-depth look into their personalities. Let our expert staff find you the perfect pet today!

This Month's Staff Pick: Octave


The Story of Octave

Octave was part of a larger group of dogs we rescued from a hoarding situation. He and approximately 15 other pups lived in a small trailer, without any electricity, covered in feces and trash. In addition to horrible living conditions, Octave received very little love and attention from his owners. While this adorable pup can be a bashful when first meeting someone, it doesn't take him long to warm up and when he does he turns into the most playful and loving little guy!!! 

Octave is a 2.5-year-old small breed mix who enjoys running and playing in the yards with our volunteers and staff. He loves belly rubs, snuggling in your lap and stuffed animals are his favorite toys! He is the last of the group still here searching for his forever home. Come meet Octave today! 

If you are interested in adding this month's staff pick to your family or have any questions, please reach out directly to our rescue team by calling (985) 892-7387 x 3, emailing or simply stopping by to meet him in person today!

Northshore Humane Society is located at 20384 Harrison Ave. in Covington, Louisiana. We hope to see you soon!
