We have great news! PAWS has received a spay/neuter grant which will allow us to help approximately 100 pets. This will allow us to accept new spay/neuter applications but only until the funds are depleted. We do have some new qualifications in place to make sure that we are helping those most in need of the assistance since our funding is so limited.

Applications will be accepted through 7/20/20 or until we have used up the funds from this grant. We will review the applications that meet the below requirements. Submitting an application does not mean you will be guaranteed a spay/neuter surgery voucher. The remaining applications that aren't chosen will be returned along with any submitted donations.


* Must submit a 2019 W-2 and 2 current pay stubs (or other proof of income such as social security notice, unemployment letter, etc.)
* Must not have used the PAWS Spay/Neuter Program within the last year
* Submit a $5 minimum donation per pet.
* 3 pet maximum

If you have submitted a spay/neuter application within the last few weeks, we have had to return them all due to lack of funding. You will need to resubmit your application along with the above requirements to be considered. We are sorry for any inconvenience....we just recently learned of this grant funding.

You can print out an application by clicking 'MORE INFO' on the right side of the screen or email to have one mailed to you.

Suspension of PAWS Spay/Neuter Program

Over the past 16 years, PAWS of NE Louisiana has taken pride in being able to assist the low income pet owners care for their pets by assisting them with spay and neuter surgeries.

It is with great sorrow that we must now make the decision to suspend our spay/neuter assistance program. Over the last several years, PAWS has paid out approximately $100,000.00 per year through the Spay/Neuter Assistance Program, and unfortunately, grants, donations and applicant co-pays have not been able to keep up with the demand. Over the last two months, PAWS has been unable to do any fundraising due to the COVID-19 virus which has forced us into suspension faster than we had hoped.

As of June 1, 2020, we will no longer be accepting spay/neuter applications. We will return all co-pays that are sent in during our suspension. PAWS will continue to operate the Animal Shelter Rescue Program, the Tag Your Pet Program, and the Pet Therapy/ Humane Education Programs in accordance with safety guidelines. As we are able, we will begin fundraising and hopefully be able to start accepting applications in the near future. We will continue to honor any spay/neuter voucher that has already been issued.

We thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please call us at 318-397-0007.
