PAWS Mission & Vision

The mission of Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is to rescue homeless and unwanted companion animals through sheltering and adoption into responsible, loving homes, while advancing community education and services to ensure responsible pet ownership, so that in the future companion animals are no longer in need of being rescued. PAWS vision is to be a leading expert in the field of animal welfare so that our community and its animals are served through compassion and diligence. We envision a future where the overpopulation of homeless companion animals is eliminated and every adoptable animal is a valued member of a responsible home.

Please join us and support the efforts of developing some of the most amaizing programs so we can continue to serve the community. Learn more about our Reciprocity Program. This is something we have chosen to initiate because as a non-profit organization, it is important to link up with others alike and spread our sense of support and kindness around. Shelter’s and nursing homes are similar in so many ways. Care, compassion and gentle interactions with elements that incite happiness are important for the mental health of those whose participation in society has been limited. By teaming up with healthcare facilities, we hope to bring these elements to the forefront and bring a little happiness to both our pets and the patients while we’re at it. We truly hope the community can join us in our efforts to spread the feelings of love, kindness, compassion with positive ACTIONS!
