Suspension of PAWS Spay/Neuter Program

Over the past 16 years, PAWS of NE Louisiana has taken pride in being able to assist the low income pet owners care for their pets by assisting them with spay and neuter surgeries.

It is with great sorrow that we must now make the decision to suspend our spay/neuter assistance program. Over the last several years, PAWS has paid out approximately $100,000.00 per year through the Spay/Neuter Assistance Program, and unfortunately, grants, donations and applicant co-pays have not been able to keep up with the demand. Over the last two months, PAWS has been unable to do any fundraising due to the COVID-19 virus which has forced us into suspension faster than we had hoped.

As of June 1, 2020, we will no longer be accepting spay/neuter applications. We will return all co-pays that are sent in during our suspension. PAWS will continue to operate the Animal Shelter Rescue Program, the Tag Your Pet Program, and the Pet Therapy/ Humane Education Programs in accordance with safety guidelines. As we are able, we will begin fundraising and hopefully be able to start accepting applications in the near future. We will continue to honor any spay/neuter voucher that has already been issued.

If we are able to get additional funding through grants, etc. we may open the application submission back up. If this happens, we will post on our Facebook page and here on our website so check back often.

We thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please call us at 318-397-0007.
