Donate to CAAWS Today

CAAWS couldn’t help the animals in the Baton Rouge area without your help and kind donations. Our non-profit organization receives no government funding and functions solely with the help of volunteers. Your assistance is what allows us to operate our community veterinary care assistance and low-cost spay/neuter programs.

All donations go directly to animal care, medical expenses, shelter expenses, pet supplies, and more.

Note: CAAWS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Charitable contributions, less than the value of any goods or services you receive in return, are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Kristin McKinley and Beatrix

“In 2013, Beatrix Kiddo entered my life. Best. Decision. Ever. Beatrix is now a resident of Colorado and she couldn’t be happier. She loves hiking on the trails and spends her spare time chasing rabbits in the yard. She is almost seven years old, but still looking forward to so many more adventures. Thank you for the world’s best trail buddy. Thank you, CAAWS!”

Donate Supplies to Our Animal Shelter in Baton Rouge

CAAWS can use your help not only through monetary donations but also through pet supplies donations. We ask for items such as collars and leashes, cleaning supplies, and more.

Item donations can be brought to the shelter at any time and left by the gate on the right side of the building.

Our most needed contributions include:

We make donating supplies to CAAWS easy with our Amazon Wish List! You can purchase an item off of the list, and it will be directly mailed to us!
