Serving the People of Louisiana - The LAWC and The LAWC Auxiliary

A Special Commission Within the office of the Governor
The LAWC is a 14-member body of men and women appointed by the governor and dedicated to ensuring the humane treatment and well-being of animals. There is nothing quite like it in any other state. The members work, without pay, to promote kindness and prevent cruelty. Humanely addressing the problem of pet over-population is also a principal concern. The commission promotes and works for the establishment of laws at all levels of government to protect animals from harm and punish those who would harm them. The business of this commission is to do everything it can to advise and serve the people of Louisiana with regard to animals; and to encourage and assure the humane treatment of animals.

Assisting the LAWC in It's Duty to the People (and to the Animals) of Louisiana
The LAWC Auxiliary assists the LAWC in carrying out its goals and objectives. It is a non-profit corporation under LAWC direction. Its members are specifically chosen by the LAWC because of their desire to work for the well-being of animals, and their special skills that make them of value to the LAWC. LAWCA members, although not salaried, may be paid on a services-rendered basis.

Special Adoptable Dog

Mr. Blue Eyes

... with the most gorgeous blue eyes you have ever seen.

Picked up on a desolate country road, his emaciated body weighed only 39 lbs. With some TLC, he is now around 55 lbs. and ready to undergo heart worm treatment. Mr. Blue Eyes is housebroken, crate trained, updated on vaccines, and he is neutered. He gets along well with children and other dogs, and is very social.

Special Adopable Cat


A precious kitten (healthy and spayed) was rescued with her mother and littermates from a space that was about to be closed with concrete. The prettiest and smartest of them all, yet, since July, she is still waiting at the Cat Hospital in Metairie, Louisiana (1500 Veterans near Bonnabel) for someone to love her, and keep her indoors and safe. All of her littermates have been adopted. Please adopt, or at least pass the word about this adorable kitten.

Contact: Anastasia Crider at or (504) 462-1968.
