Volunteer with JPAWS
Volunteering is a great way for you to support the Jefferson Protection & Animal Welfare Services, and we appreciate all that our volunteers do for our community and its animals!
There are lots of ways to help our pets:
Grooming & Bathing
Walking & Socializing with pets
Volunteers age 11-15 years old must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times while volunteering. This parent/guardian must also complete volunteer training.
COURT ORDERED COMMUNITY SERVICE
The JPAWS volunteer program does not give credit for court ordered community service hours. If this is what you need, please call the shelter for information. West Bank (504) 349-5111.
The Jefferson Protection & Animal Welfare Services (JPAWS) is an entity of Jefferson Parish government.
