It’s Giving Tuesday! ❤️ On this day of giving back to your community or to a charity, please donate to CAAWS! We receive no government funding and rely solely on private donations to exist. Since we are 💯% volunteer-based, every cent you donate goes into our spay/neuter and adoption programs, and to help with shelter costs such as keeping the heat on during cold days like today so our furbabies stay warm. 🐶🐱Please donate here, and thank you!! 🙏🏻❤️ https://secure.anedot.com/caaws/c3010d004279fe5eb7ed4

🚨IMMEDIATE FOSTER NEEDED: Sweet Dexter is a timid fellow who needs a foster home while waiting for his FURever home. He will turn 3 on Jan. 22. Please help this baby find a foster home so he can rest comfortably during the holidays instead of coming back to our shelter where he exhibits much anxiety and stress. Open your ❤️ this holiday season and make friends with this angel boy. 🙏🏻
He’s good with other dogs; home with no children. Email [email protected] and fill out an online foster app if interested in fostering Dexter: https://form.jotform.com/30390838638159

This weekend, Saturday Nov 25th, we will be CLOSED for Dog Adoptions, due to the holidays and surrounding family times for our volunteers! In the meantime, you can always look over all of our adoptables here for dogs https://shorturl.at/nsIJQ and here for cats https://shorturl.at/gyFN4 as well as fill out the corresponding adoption applications, and we'll get back to you soon. Perhaps after a Post-Turkey Nap Time, but we WILL get back to you! Be safe this holiday with your pets, I'm attaching an infographic that highlights pet safety for the day in question. One thing I will add is this: Be careful of pets escaping! Doors not being shut, kids opening doors, foot traffic, confusion, etc, can easily lead to a pet slipping out for a fun, for them, stressful for us, "adventure" despite all our best efforts. Always make sure to have proper and up to date id tags on all fur babies!

Giving Tuesday is Nov. 28! ❤️🤲🏻 On this day dedicated to giving to charity, here are a few reasons why you should donate your money or time to helping CAAWS ➡️ We are a no-kill shelter and the first no-kill in Baton Rouge, founded in 1979; we are 💯% volunteer-based, which means every cent donated goes to help homeless dogs and cats in our shelter and the community, and not to pay employees; we have adoption, spay/neuter, humane education, TNR, and Pet Touch Therapy programs that help us place animals in loving homes, teach responsible pet ownership, S/N cats on the streets, and bring trained dogs to visit with residents in assisted living and nursing home facilities. To donate, visit www.CAAWS.org/donate. We’ll have other ways to donate on Nov. 28. See you then!
