PAWS of Northeast Louisiana will be sponsoring its monthly offsite adoption opportunity of available pets from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter this weekend.

Come see our great variety of adoptable pets at the PAWS' offsite adoption on Saturday, July 27th, 2013, at Petco in Monroe from 12 pm - 4 pm.  As predicted, the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter is once again crowded so it is imperative that the adoptable pets find homes.  

Adopting a pet saves two lives:  one of the animal adopted and another for the space that adoption created for another pet coming into the shelter.  Since we cannot adopt our way out of this surplus of homeless pets, we would like to remind ALL pet-owners to have their pets spayed/neutered as soon as the animals are of age. 

Adopted pets may quickly settle in to their new homes, while others may require two weeks or more to adapt.  Some will require housetraining, schooling on basic manners and/or additional time to adjust to current pets in the household.  These factors should be considered prior to adopting a new pet.

The (cash) adoption fee is $60 for dogs and $50 for cats, and this includes a spay/neuter certificate and 7-in-1 & Bordetella vaccinations.
