June 2013

Summer is officially here! Summer usually means more family time, parties and vacations. This can mean your pet will need First Aid. Please review this information from 1-800-PetMeds. There are lots of great tips! For example, what to do when your pet eats an inedible object, suffers soft-tissue trauma or ingests a toxin.

APAWS and The Manship Theatre Presents Beetlejuice


Come join us on June 15, 2013 to enjoy Michael Keaton, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin in the classic comedy Beetlejuice. We will be having a pre-show event starting at 6:00 pm and everyone is welcome to come out dressed as their favorite Beetlejuice character. Just remember you still need to be able to see the movie, so don't wear anything that will prevent you or others from viewing the movie.  It is the 25th Anniversary of Beetlejuice and we want to celebrate.  So, come out to support animals and celebrate the anniversary of one of everyone's favorite bio-exorcist.

This event is proudly sponsored by The Manship Theatre, Whole Foods, The Bulldog and L'Auberge.

PearlPearl had surgery on May 29, 2013 to correct a hereditary condition, ectopic ureter. This condition caused her to not be able to urinate properly and to leak when any pressure was placed on her bladder (for example when she walked). She came through the surgery with flying colors, but we are in need of donations to pay for the surgery. This was a very complex surgery requiring two of the best surgeons in Baton Rouge. Because she was in pain we had to get the surgery done immediately and could not wait for fundraising.

Please donate today to Pearl's surgery! You can either donate through Crowdrise, or directly through paypal.com. Any donations made through paypal.com will be entered on Crowdrise so the total raised is accurate. Please note there are fees associated with both Crowdrise and paypal.com. A $10 donation made on Crowdrise will result in APAWS receiving $8.50. A $10 donation made through Paypal will result in APAWS receiving $9.38.




WilsonWilson had a tumor removed from his head in May. Luckily the tumor was not in his brain, but one ear had to be removed. Testing showed the tumor was cancerous, but the report says we added years to his life by having it removed! He is now in his foster home doing very well and much happier now that the tumor is gone.

Please donate today to Wilson's surgery! You can either donate through Crowdrise, or directly through paypal.com. Any donations made through paypal.com will be entered on Crowdrise so the total raised is accurate.






These are our donors for the past month. We sincerely appreciate all of our donors and could not function without them.

Donations can be made through Paypal.
