We placed 34 dogs in loving homes this year after only picking up adoptions again in July. With only 4 active fosters.. As most of you know, APAWS was on a hiatus for about 2 1/2 years. Now that we are back up and running with new leadership in place, we can’t wait to see what 2024 looks like! Happy New Year!

“Meeko is loving life. He is super spoiled rotten, loves to cuddle, enjoys endless pets and ropes are his favorite toys. He completed our little family. We couldn’t be more in love with this guy. He is going to be the cutest ring bearer in our wedding.”

Merry Christmas to Aimee, Bryce and Meeko. We are so happy that you guys found each other and that Meeko found his furever. We cannot thank you two enough for giving Meeko the life that every dog deserves!

We would like to thank the wonderful vet staff at Petstar Animal Care of Prairieville for taking care of our two newest APAWS pups this week while their foster mom got ready for them! We picked them up this morning and they were both happy, bathed and ready to start their search for their new furever homes! Their Christmas wish was to bust out of the shelter…& that wouldn’t have been possible without Petstar making some room for these two babies so that our transporter, Jeorge, could give them their freedom ride! 💚❤️🎄

Meet Ruby!

Ruby is believed to be Shepherd mix, guesstimated weight 50+lbs, approximately 2-3yrs, will be spayed, microchipped and current on shots at time of adoption and she is house trained.

* Ruby’s story: We don’t know much about Ruby’s story before now except that she was abandoned with a small bag of food at a dog park in Denham Springs.
* Ruby’s personality: Smart, ready to learn, can be easily trained, goofy, playful, and pretty content just doing whatever. Her foster is working with her on leash manners. Considering Ruby was at a dog park, we assume she plays well with other dogs and has not been tested around cats or kids.
* Ruby’s likes: Playing fetch, playing with toys and balls, walking on a leash, and is perfectly happy just being in the same room as someone.
* Ruby’s dislikes: Touching her while she eats and strangers. She will alert you when someone new comes around.
Please consider giving Ruby the life her previous owner(s) didn’t. She needs a loving family willing to give her the good live she deserves.

Meet Nelli!!

Nelli is a 13/14wk old Mix Breed. She was found in a culvert at 7wks old. She is scheduled for her spay & 2nd set of shots on December 21st and will be available for adoption after that! We do believe Nelli will be a medium-sized dog when fully grown. Nelli is good with other dogs.

🚨URGENT! FOSTER HOME NEEDED!

Jasper’s foster who found him abandoned in the park and asked APAWS to help find him a home is wanting to go surrender him to CAA. Her dog has gotten possessive over her and does not want Jasper in the house. He desperately needs a foster. We have no where for him to go. And we cannot afford boarding. He is also available for foster to adopt!

Jasper is a 2 year old Mixed Breed. Jasper is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and kennel trained. Jasper was found at City Park with his collar and leash attached. He was microchipped and because of that, we were able to find out that his previous owners dumped him there. He is extremely affectionate and loves nothing more than to be by your side, whether it's cuddling with you on the couch or following you as walk around the house. He does resource guard his things around other dogs (toys & food). Jasper does okay on leash but does still pull sometimes. He is very food motivated and eager to please, so training him shouldn't be an issue. He has already started training and has made wonderful progress!! He already knows how to sit. Jasper does well with people and children but is not suited for a home with cats. Please consider opening your heart & home to Jasper!

If you are interested in meeting and/or starting the adoption process on Jasper, the first step is to please click this link and complete an adoption application : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdKJuBVKkrItDqrhKd-mDCjUFjJXkwxqzAH-Y9MII4kIX4XQA/viewform?usp=sf_link

If you are interested in fostering this dog, please complete our foster application linked here : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfAmM18uhoVp3kHwyWArcmpTn21vHJp5vWeWzdwSvaP7ClQhA/viewform?usp=sf_link
When you foster with APAWS, we provide everything the dog needs. (food, kennel, vet care, supplies, etc.) You are responsible for providing a safe, healthy and loving home for him until he is adopted.
