The Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS) (Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70879) is a non-profit organization committed to the well-being of animals in the Baton Rouge community by providing, facilitating, and promoting spay/neuter, adopting or facilitating the adoption of homeless animals, teaching the community responsible companion animal ownership and the humane treatment of animals, and at all times promoting the practice of spay/neuter. CAAWS is not part of any animal control branch of the government including CAA and EBRAC. Our ultimate goal is to have Baton Rouge be a model in the South where all adoptable animals find loving homes.


We do not receive any government assistance and subsist solely from adoption fees, private donations and memberships. We have no paid staff so all money donated to CAAWS goes directly to the care of our animals, shelter expenses, pet food, pet supplies, or to our community outreach programs. Please support CAAWS so that we may continue our mission to help animals in our community through our public assistance programs.

Villalobos Rescue Center (New Orleans, Louisiana 70117) works ceaselessly to give Pit Bulls another chance in life. Each and EVERY dog taken in, gets spayed or neutered, and given any medical treatment necessary. We work patiently to re-acclimatize fearful dogs to the loving care of a human, so that they may eventually be adopted. In some cases, these dogs have never had a kind word or touch, and it is a slow process. After determining temperaments and compatibility factors, we begin that long search for the perfect home.



Unfortunately Pit Bulls are their own worst enemy – their loyalty and devotion make them the perfect victim. Have we already forgotten about Petey? He was the loyal ring eyed dog of the Lil Rascals. Yes, Petey was a Pit Bull! You see the dogs themselves haven’t changed – we have!

We’ve turned these All American Family dogs into the killing machines of the ’90′s. It is our responsibility to turn this around. We owe it to them. After all, aren’t they man’s best friend?

In August 2012, Villalobos Rescue Center (VRC) had a life changing experience. We moved our entire operation from Los Angeles County, Calif, where we had been residing for almost 20 years to….New Orleans, Louisiana. This decision took us almost a year to implement but it was our rescue efforts during Hurricane Katrina that just kept resonating in our mind and heart.

Worthy Paws (St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana) is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the overpopulation and unnecessary killing of homeless pets in St. Tammany Parish.

Last year, more than 6,000 animals were taken by St. Tammany Parish Animal Shelter. Due to overcrowding, almost 5,000 were euthanized. There are no-kill shelters in St. Tammany, where pets are not put to sleep, but, the problem of overcrowding persists. Once a no-kill shelter has reached capacity, approximately 300 animals, the pets are turned away. They are then sent to St. Tammany Animal Shelter, which is a government shelter, and required to take in all animals. Once St. Tammany Animal Shelter reaches capacity (which is also around 300 animals), the staff is forced to euthanize to make room for more pets.

The mission of Worthy Paws is to:

  • Inform the public about the tragic killing of homeless pets and how individuals can make a difference and save lives. When people are made aware of the horrific numbers, they may become part of the reality and the solution.
  • Showcase the countless number of animals available for adoption in local shelters. Many of these helpless animals will be needlessly euthanized.
  • Promote the importance of spaying and neutering pets in order to drastically reduce the amount of unwanted animals on the street.
