P.A.W.S. (Plaquemines Animal Welfare
Society)has moved to a larger facility Feb. 2011.This is great for our
dogs, they now have room to go out and run and play.
Our adoption center hours have changed, new hours are: Monday-Saturday 11:00-5:00 and Sunday 11-4. If you see an animal on the internet that you would like to meet, we can make arrangements for you to visit our center.
P.A.W.S. (Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society) is a
non-profit organization dedicated to spaying and neutering of animals in
order to control the population of unwanted animals, thus reducing the
need for euthanasia. Our parish government operates a "holding
facility", where animals picked up by the Animal Control workers are
housed for seven days. Parish Animal Control and P.A.W.S. have been
working together to have a better working relationship to help care for
the unwanted animals in our Parish .
Since 1998, P.A.W.S. volunteers have made weekly visits to the holding facility to remove as many potentially adoptable animals as we can. We're limited by the lack of space and suitable foster homes. Each animal rescued by P.A.W.S. is taken directly to a veterinarian to be health-checked, sterilized, and given necessary medical treatment. P.A.W.S. funds all health-care expenses. Without our volunteers, all of the animals pictured on our site would not find loving homes.
" P.A.W.S." ADOPTION CENTER is just the first step in our long-term work in Plaquemines Parish. Our goal is to obtain funding to build a modern, efficient adoption center equipped with covered dog runs, cat "condos", veterinary examination area, and a people-friendly area where prospective pet owners can interact with adoptable pets.
We will continue to host adoption Saturdays at the Harvey PetsMart on Manhattan Boulevard. Right now, we maintain the cat condos in the store.
Volunteering and Donations
We need more helping hands to keep P.A.W.S. running. We need foster homes for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies. We urgently need assistance from people who are experienced in grant-writing and fund-raising so that we can continue to expand our facility. We're always ready to take donations for dog food,"we are now using Hills Science Diet "for all our dogs,puppies,cats and kittens. Kitty litter, vet medicines, old, clean towels and blankets as well as leashes and collars.
