About Angel Paws

Angel Paws is a local leader in areas of adoption, animal welfare, rescue, and the fight against animal cruelty. We provide animals with medical care, food, shelter, love, and a second chance at life.

Organized for the purpose of preventing and relieving suffering to and among animals and to disseminate the humane ethic in Iberia Parish and adjacent areas, Angel Paws has left its mark on not only the animal community but also Iberia Parish as a whole. They have and continue to reduce the over-population of domestic animals in the area served by the society through spay, neuter, and vaccination programs, seek to return lost animals to their owners, and take pride in finding suitable homes for animals without owners.
