Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The FAWS pet adoption program has no boundaries. Our rescue and community outreach programs span the parish of East Feliciana, Louisiana. FAWS is a network of foster homes primarily located in the EF Parish communities of Clinton, Jackson, Slaughter, Ethel, Norwood and Wilson. Our spay/neuter programs also apply to EF Parish. Volunteers in nearby areas are welcome!

About Our Rescue Group:

FAWS, a volunteer no-kill companion animal rescue organization, opened its "virtual doors" in 2008 as a network of foster caregivers in East Feliciana Parish. Volunteers are greatly needed, so please join our effort. As things are going now, we hope to celebrate the rescue of our 1000th pet by the end of 2012! In addition to our rescue and placement efforts, FAWS is proud of its Community Outreach work with the citizens of our impoverished parish. Donations received from our generous supporters have enabled us to carry out an aggressive canine spay/neuter program, but we are most proud of our Feline Management Program with over 250 feline spays/neuters within the first 8 months of 2012. For more information, give us a call at 225-252-5138. Visit our PF site at WWW.FAWS.PETFINDER.COM; friend us on FB at Feliciana Faws. Email us at FelicianaAnimalWelfareSociety@yahoo.com.

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters are screened during the initial phone call and are asked questions pertaining to the environment they plan to provide their new pet. This phone interview will include questions about the household, children, indoor/outdoor characteristics, other pets in the household and an overview of the adopter's plans for providing a safe and loving home for their new pet.
Adoption fees are $40 for felines and $40-$100 for canines, including spay/neuter and up to date vaccinations. (A voucher program applies to puppies too young to be spayed.)
Adoptions take place the day potential adopters meet their new forever pet and the adoption contract/payment is handled at that time.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
