Monroe, LA (KNOE) - IT’S OUR 14TH BIRTHDAY!
CELEBRATE WITH US BY PARTICIPATING IN OUR ONLINE BIRTHDAY PAW-TY FUNDRAISER!
FUNDRAISER ENDS 5/30/17
PAWS was founded in May 2003 and with the help of our community members, we have been saving lives through spay/neuter & rescue since then! As of our birthday this year, we are proud to report the following accomplishments!
RESCUED! We have rescued over 1,250 pets from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter and placed them into loving homes.
SPAYED/NEUTERED! We have spayed & neutered over 7,000 pets of pet owners in Northeast Louisiana who could not otherwise have afforded this surgery.
TAGGED! We have distributed over 7,000 free pet id tags to help pets find their way home if lost.
VISITED! Our pet therapy teams have made hundreds of visits to schools, hospitals and retirement homes to spread love & joy and to provide humane education.
OUR BIRTHDAY WISH IS TO CONTINUE HELPING AS MANY PEOPLE AND PETS AS WE CAN!
