Yes YOU can help!
Here is a break down of 7 ways you can help the animals in our community. 1) Join PAWS & become a foster. Open your home to an animal for 4 to 6 weeks. The animals pulled into our rescue program usually aren't the ones that get moved to the adoptable section so you are truly saving that animalís life & the next animal that comes in. 2) Join PAWS & sponsor a dog. Sponsoring is easy with many different levels and any amount helps. You can see the different sponsor levels on our rescue page & then email rescue@pawsnela.org to find out which animal needs a sponsor. 3) Join our believers & donate to Spay-Neuter Services. Our believers know that spaying & neutering is the only answer so they keep pushing to help get the doors opened at 1601 Southern Ave in Monroe. Our believers donate money & also do fundraisers for us. 4) Join PAWS & donate to Sponsor-A-Spay. This is our low income spay/neuter assistance program that helps low income level families get their pets fixed. 5) Volunteer at OPAS & show the animals that are stuck there that someone loves them. Go to the shelter, bath them, walk them, give them treats & spend time with them. Some have never known the love of a human & some at one time, did know that love, but for whatever reason that love just isn't there any more & they were dumped at OPAS. 6) Donate food, beds, bleach, towels & treats to OPAS. Because the shelter is a parish run facility, their budget isn't great and they always need items. Cleaning supplies help to keep diseases down at the shelter, but we also need people who are willing to volunteer & use those supplies there. Bleaching water bowls & cages helps cut down on parvo & distemper. Two deadly diseases that if not handled quickly can spread. 7) Join PAWS, OPAS & all the other shelters in our area in spreading the word: ADOPT, DON'T SHOP & SPAY & NEUTER YOUR PETS. This is the easiest of all. Educate yourself & pass the word on. Very simple steps that will make a great impact on the lives of animals in our community. Join us to make that difference.
