About the Pet Assistance Welfare Society (PAWS)

Our Mission

To reduce and aid the population of unwanted and lost companion animals in our community and to support and encourage the positive interaction between pets and people.

PAWS is an all volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in May 2003 to help the communities in the Northeast Louisiana area. We have created several programs to help accomplish our mission which include our Animal Shelter Rescue, Humane Education, Spay/Neuter Assistance Program, Tag Your Pet Program and our Pet Therapy Program. We hope you will be inspired to join us!

You can join PAWS in our efforts by donating, becoming a member or by volunteering. If you'd like more information or to volunteer, you can email us at pawsnela@yahoo.com or visit our Volunteer page.
