Would you recommend Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)?

by Chris B. from Belle Chasse, LA (Administrator for this Organization) (2013-08-20 09:06:17.0)
PAWS is a wonderful no-kill shelter that helps save countless animals from being euthanized each year. They take in dogs and cats from Animal Control that were dumped on the side of the road or abandoned by their owners and rehabilitate them and find them loving families that will make them a part of the family, not just a pet, forever. I love volunteering at PAWS because there is always something to do, and I always leave knowing that I made a difference in the lives of the dogs and cats there.
