Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), a no-kill animal shelter located in Belle Chasse, LA, is dedicated to the humane and loving treatment of stray and homeless animals.
PAWS mission is to rescue, shelter and adopt healthy dogs and cats and provide educational and charitable services to pet owners in Plaquemines Parish. As a part of that mission, PAWS educates community members on responsible pet ownership including the benefits of spaying/neutering pets as well as providing information on pet care, training and maintenance.
As a non-profit organization, PAWS relies solely on donations from caring individuals, businesses, friends, adoptions and fundraisers. Donations pay for surgery, spaying/neutering, vet care, immunizations worming and medicines. Donations also help pay for dog/cat food, and special diets for kittens/puppies, and sick animals.
PAWS insures that each animal adopted is healthy and protected against diseases. A complete record is maintained on all animals and every effort is made to match the pet and owner for a lifetime of incredible companionship.
