Please accurately complete the application in its entirety. If you qualify for our Community Assistance Program, you will be asked to schedule an appointment at the CAAWS approved veterinary clinic. A CAAWS volunteer will send the voucher to the veterinary clinic. The voucher will cover the cost of a spay or neuter surgery and rabies vaccination only. All other services or products are the responsibility of the owner. CAAWS is issuing a very limited number of vouchers, and they are issued on a first come first basis to approved households. Applicants must be residents of one of the following parishes: East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Livingston, Iberville, East Feliciana, West Feliciana.
Please note you will be responsible for purchasing a rabies license if required by law. If your animal is already up to date, you will need to provide the veterinary clinic with proof of rabies.
There is a limit of one pet per household for the remainder of 2020. CAAWS at sole discretion may make exceptions.
The income limit is no more than 200% of the federal poverty level, for each household. (See link below) Each household must submit a copy of the previous year federal tax return, AND two paycheck stubs dated within the last two months, or proof of unemployment, SNAP, TANF, WIC, or Social Security benefits.
