  • ID#: 7228658
Are you looking for a BFF! Riley could be your guy! Adopted from us three years ago, he ws recently returned due to family issues. Always a 'nervous Nelly-type,' sweet Ri was a wreck--afraid of everyone and everything. After a week, our vet recommended a simple 'fix'--Prozac. Who believes in miracles? We do! A $4.00 prescription has made a simply incredible difference in this boy! He now goes out with his foster buddies, is starting to play with toys, and is a cuddler on the sofa in the evenings! He will need a stable, quiet home but if you are a single looking for a bud, or an elderly person needing a loyal companion, all bets are on--Riley will fill the bill! He willingly takes his meds and bonds deeply to his caregiver. He is now going to PetsMart on Saturdays--come out to meet him! or more info, call or email and his foster will respond asap.

About LAPAW Rescue & TNR

About Our Rescue Group...

LAPAW Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit, all breed rescue group. We do not have a shelter, but instead foster animals in our homes until they are adopted. We are committed to giving homeless animals a second chance at life.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Donations can be made through PAYPAL at lapaw@bellsouth.net. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to care of our homeless pets.

Come Meet Our Pets...

LAPAW Rescue holds pet adoption days every Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. at the Petsmart in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fees for our rescue animals range from $100 to $150. LAPAW Rescue spays or neuters every animal, provides all shots, and vet checks every animal. Anyone interested in adopting must fill out an adoption application and be screened by an adoption coordinator. Home visits are required prior to adoptions. The home visit is to assure the safety of the animal and that the dog is a good match for the family.
