"When you ask me why I care so much, I wonder why you do not.
When you ask me how I do so much, I wonder how you do not.
When you ask me what I'm trying to prove, I wonder what you are not.
You ask because you wonder. I wonder because you ask."

Cajun Paws Rescue

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter, the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love & hope,
fear & dread, sadness & betrayal. And I was angry. "
God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't You do something?"
God was silent for a moment, & then He spoke softly. "
I have done something," He replied. "I created you."

Cajun Paws Rescue is a Rescue in the Lafayette/Acadiana Area.

After working with a local rescue for about a year that didn’t accept our favorite breed, the pitbull, we decided it was time for something to be done. This breed is the most misunderstood and mistreated breed here, and everywhere else in the US.

We work on saving the precious lives of the pitbull breed (aka the American Pit Bull Terrier,the American Stafordshire Terrier, & the Staffordshire Bull Terrier) by placing them into qualified foster homes. We get them all fully vetted, heartworm tested & spayed/neutered, then the adoption process begins. :) We are working on becoming a 501c3, which means a qualified non profit organization.

We want to educate the public about this amazing breed as well as save lives. After all, they are known as one of the most loyal, intelligent, and loving dogs around. Don’t they deserve it?
