Just added the Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (P.A.W.S.) to the No Kill Shelters in Louisiana page.
This is an amazing group that has been rescuing animals from the parish animal control shelter in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. They are now building a shelter in conjunction with animal control – it will be animal control on one side with the shelter on the other. It will be an all-green shelter, with walls which retain heat in the winter and a roof that recycles water.
Additionally, it will be in a high-traffic area and the first building in a new government complex. For the full story, see Struggling, No-Kill Animal Shelter Given Hope and/or go directly to their home page: Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society (P.A.W.S.) – they, like many shelters, are in need of donations of all kinds, foster homes and helping hands!
