PAWS TRANSITIONS FOCUS OF NON-PROFIT TO RAISING FUNDS
We are excited to announce that on January 1, 2020, the Louisiana SPCA assumed management of the Plaquemines Parish Animal Shelter formerly run by PAWS. The facility will be renamed the Louisiana SPCA’S Plaquemines Parish Campus.
Over the years PAWS leadership has worked closely with the Louisiana SPCA moving adoptable animals to their facility or through their transport program, spaying/neutering our shelter animals and providing assistance during times of natural disaster. Behind the scenes, the Louisiana SPCA has been been a valuable partner to PAWS, the community, and the animals of Plaquemines Parish.
PAWS notified Plaquemines Parish Government officials in October that we would not be renewing our contract to manage the parish’s animal shelter. Wanting the very best for the animals in Plaquemines Parish, we approached the Louisiana SPCA to consider caring for the animals neighboring Orleans Parish.
“Although PAWS will no longer manage the day-to-day operations of the animal shelter, we are committed to animal welfare throughout Plaquemines Parish,” says Tammy Gagliano, PAWS Board President. “Moving forward, we will show our support for the Louisiana SPCA through fundraising efforts.”
The Louisiana SPCA impacts the lives of more than 70,000 animals throughout Louisiana every year. Through life-saving innovative initiatives like a nationwide transport program, low-cost Community Clinic, nationally recognized foster program and collaborations with local and national partner groups, the Louisiana SPCA has been an advocate for the animals in Louisiana for more than 130 years.
Thank you for your continued support of Plaquemines Parish animals!
