About Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society
Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends. Founded in 2003, the shelter additionally houses Plaquemines Animal Control and has since helped the parish reduce the unnecessary killing of animals by 97%.
As part of its commitment to fostering responsible pet guardianship, Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) provides a range of free educational articles on pet health, the importance of spay/neuter, and about pet adoption and foster.
Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of various dog and cat supplies, cleaning needs and office supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.
