Pet adoption opportunities:

We have cats, dogs, puppies and kittens available for adoption every weekend on SATURDAY from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm, at PetSmart off of Siegen Lane.

Who We Are

A.P.A.W.S. (Animal Protection And Welfare Society) is an all volunteer group of people who are dedicated to ensuring that all pet animals in and around the Baton Rouge area live in homes which provide for all of the animal's physical and emotional needs (including daily maintenance, medical care and nurturing) for the animal's lifetime. Some volunteers provide food, shelter and love in their homes to cats and dogs who have been injured, abandoned or thrown away. Others help by transporting the animals to veterinarian appointments, volunteering on Adoption Days, participating in fund raising activities, mailings, publicity efforts and public education. Because we receive no external funding, we rely on fund raising efforts and donations to fund our efforts. Your unwanted items can help support unwanted animals. APAWS is now affiliated with "HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW" thrift store on Burbank drive in Baton Rouge. Items may be donated MONDAY - SATURDAY between the hours of 9:00- 4:00. Simply designate sale proceeds to benefit APAWS. APAWS will receive 50% of sale proceeds! It's that easy! So clean out those closets! Go through the kid's clothes, empty out that garage! Unwanted items help unwanted animals Sale of just $20 of items will provide APAWS with $$ for a rabies shot... Sale of $60 will spay/neuter a homeless animal! Clean up and help out!

Adopting a friend

Since we have no shelter at this time, our foster animals live in homes or at the vet offices. If you are interested in any of our animals, please call us at 225-343-0303 and arrangements will be made to get you and your future pet together

Come Visit Us!
