Our Rescue Program is also in charge of hosting a monthly offsite adoption for Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter pets at Petco in Monroe, LA on the last Saturday of each month. We arrange spay/neuter surgeries for all the dogs and cats we plan to take, bathe and groom them so they look their best and PAWS volunteers help transport and handle the dogs on offsite day. In addition to our regular Petco offsite adoption days, the PAWS Rescue Program takes adoptable cats from the OPAS to the Cat Adoption Center inside Petsmart. By getting shelter animals out in the public eye and increasing awareness of the amazing pets at the OPAS, we have helped facilitate thousands of adoptions since PAWS of NE LA was formed in 2003.
FOSTER - Fostering saves lives plain and simple. We cannot pull animals from the shelter without local foster homes waiting to take them in. It takes a truly special person to become a foster parent to a pet. You have to be willing and able to fully give your heart and home to an animal that will become part of your family for a few weeks or months. Many people think they couldn't love and care for a pet for only a short period of time, but then you realize that you are the integral link to that pet's finding a wonderful home rather than facing an unfortunate fate at the shelter. One of our fosters describes the experience: "Some people have wondered how I could foster a dog I will eventually have to give away, but the sadness of giving them away is nothing compared to the thought of never giving them a chance to live!" We can't do it without your help! Learn more and fill out an application online through the links on the right side of this page.

The dogs will thank you!The Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter is a governmental agency under the Ouachita Parish Police Jury responsible for protecting the public safety and health as associated with domestic and wild animals. They are located at 417 Well Road in West Monroe, Louisiana. "OPAS" also accepts strays and owner surrendered animals. They took in 8,177 dogs & cats in 2011. With fewer than 100 cages, they must euthanize on a daily basis. There is simply not enough room or homes for all the animals. Companion animal overpopulation is a tragic problem in our area.

Over the years, our building deteriorated and our 10-year lease expired. With a bequest from a dedicated animal lover and monies raised through an intensive four-year building fund campaign, we were able to build a new facility, which is located at 5302 DeSiard St. in Monroe, Louisiana.
