Our goal is to place our cats and dogs in permanent, good, loving homes. The majority of these cats and dogs have been previously abused and or neglected. We are vigilant in choosing their new homes.

Our adoption fee is $110.00. All animals in our care have been spayed / neutered,
vaccinated, wormed, tested for feline or canine diseases and been given any medication the animal may have needed while in our care.

We do our adoptions at the Petsmart store in Lafayette, Louisiana on Saturdays from 12-4pm.

To see the animals we currently have up for adoption, please see our Petfinder Adoptable Pets Listing or use our PetPoint Adoptable Search page.

Scroll down the left side of our website and look for the “Online Adoption Forms” links to fill out an adoption application form online, or look for “Downloadable Forms” which will allow you to download an application form in Microsoft Word format. If you are having trouble with the forms, email us at and we will send you one.

    We met at youngsville middle this morning. My family and I are interested in Nitro. I’m not sure about the next step in adoption. I’ll wait for a reply and/or instructions to begin.

    Kayla, go to and use the search tools there to find what you’re looking for, if you use Facebook, go to our Facebook page People Assisting Animal Welfare and post a message there, or send us more information by emailing us at and we’ll see what we can do to help you find what you’re looking for. 🙂

    Look on the left side of the website under the heading, “Online Adoption Forms” – there is a link for applications for dogs and a link for applications for cats. This allows you to fill out the information online. On the left side, underneath “Online Adoption Forms”, there is a link for “Downloadable Forms” in which you can download to your computer and fill out with Microsoft Word. Otherwise, simply send us email at and ask us to send you an application form. Hope that helps.

    Do you adopt your pups out of state?

  8. PAAW says:

    That depends on the information received on the adoption application form. If you are interested in a particular pet in our care, download the adoption application form and send it to and we’ll go from there. Thanks for your inquiry.

    I have a mini pin that I need to give away to a new home. He isn’t getting along well with my 1 year old. Please let me know more information. I am clueless on what to do. Thanks so much!

    Hi Alexandra,

    I’m sorry, but PAAW is not taking in any more animals. You could try the other rescues such as Lafayette Animal Aid, Animal Rescue Foundation Lafayette, and Acadiana Humane Society.

    We would like to be reunited with samsom-our 4yr. Old kitty
    He’s black & white. We put him in the Hazel Park Animal Shelter to get fixed and to see if he still sprays. He’s still there. How do we go about getting him back? 248-904-4214-call us please we really should not have gave him up. We miss him very much!!

  12. PAAW says:

    I’m sorry, judging by your area code, you are in Michigan. We are located in Louisiana, so we would not be of much help. I can only suggest that you contact the shelter that you took Samson to and work it out with them to get Samson back.

    We had to put our old lab retriever down today. Inspeakable grief. We would like to find another white lab/ greyhound mix or small lab. Please contact me at 3373662855. Thank you.

  14. PAAW says:

    Hello Ms. Gamber, at this time, PAAW does not have any dogs that match what you’re looking for. Have you tried Acadiana Animal Aid, ARFLa, or Acadiana Humane Society? You can find them on FaceBook or do a search at Good luck and thank you for visiting our site
