The summer heat is here! With outdoor Pet Adoption events becoming more and more difficult on the animals (and volunteers, too), avoid the heat and meet our pets in their foster home environments. At FAWS, everyday is adoption day, seven days a week, at your convenience. Animals sheltered in foster care enjoy a family environment, are socialized with other animals, humans and children, and receive handson love and attention. Foster parents know their FAWS pets best and can answer any questions pertaining to their temperament, habits, likes and dislikes, which is information potential adopters can use in making their decision to adopt. Click on our adoptable pets listing above and take a tour of our virtual animal shelter. Fall in love with a pet and give us a call at 225-252-5138 or email us at FelicianaAnimalWelfareSociety@yahoo.com!
ADOPTIONS: FAWS PETS are available for adoption SEVEN DAYS A WEEK!!! Our adoption fees are low, only $40-$125 per dog and $40 per cat. To adopt one of our animals, call us anytime at 225-252-5138 or email us at FelicianaAnimalWelfareSociety@yahoo.com. We will be glad to answer any and all questions pertaining to our animals and how you can adopt the pet of your choice. In many cases adoptive families can be united with their new pet in as little as one day! Our animals are sheltered at foster homes, so please call to make an appointment.

SPAY/NEUTER: Puppy adoptions that take place prior to spay/neuter include a $25 spay/neuter voucher for a refund of $25 upon receipt of proof of spay/neuter which is mandatory when the puppy reaches 6 months of age. We can arrange a low-cost spay/neuter appointment. Our adult dogs are sterilized prior to adoption. The $40 feline adoption fee includes spay/neuter and vaccinations.
ADOPTING A FRIEND
We seek loving, safe homes for our pets, and we take great care with making sure the pet matches the hopeful adopting family. For this reason we do ask for additional information about where the pet will stay, how much time will be devoted to the care of the pet and whether other pets reside in the home. We seek the best fit for each of our animals.
GET ON OUR WAITING LIST!
Don’t see your vision of a pet here in Petfinder? Call or email us to be placed on our waiting list for specific breeds of incoming animals. If we know we will have a pre-approved adoptive home for an animal, we will not have to say “no” when we receive a call to take in one more rescue in need of care. Contact us by phone at 225-252-5138 or email us at FelicianaAnimalWelfareSociety@yahoo.com. Let us know how to get in touch with you. We check both contact sources regularly.
FAWS is raging a battle against Pet Overpopulation in the parish of East Feliciana. Our resources are limited. The availability of outside funding allows us to work closely with local families with out-of-control feline populations and to provide low-cost canine spay/neuter assistance. This work brings us into the living rooms of these committed families where we iron out a plan of action and begin right away working to close the gate on future litters.
Our Foster Care Providers are our true jewels. They provide safe haven to both dogs and cats that have been dumped and abandoned throughout our parish. With their help, all of our animals are maintained in caring family environments where they receive socialization with humans and other animals, the key elements of building a healthy, trusting pet. FAWS provides the necessary kennels, animal foods and veterinary care to all FAWS Foster Families and volunteers. To inquire about becoming a FAWS foster home, please give us a call at 225-252-5138.
OUR BARN CAT PROGRAM!
FAWS is located in the rural parish of East Feliciana where feline over-population runs rampant. Our “BARN CAT PROGRAM” offers beautiful tame and semi-tamed spayed/neutered and vaccinated Cats and Kittens for adoption as outdoor animals. Adoptive homes must be located in a safe, rural environment with outdoor shelter such as a barn or porch area. An Adoption fee of $40 applies.
