National Dog Day

National Dog Day

In honor of National Dog Day, if you adopt a dog today, or submit an application on any dog today, we will discount the dog adoption fee by $50.00. You can download our application by clicking the “Download prescreening application” on the side of this page. Submitting your application by attaching it to an email is the fastest way to get it to us. If you have been considering adopting a dog, now is the time to submit your application. If you aren’t quite ready to finalize the adoption, then as long as we receive your application today, we will still apply the special reduced fee when you do adopt.

raining cats and dogs

Acadiana Humane Society is currently above capacity on cats, dogs, and rabbits. Because of this we are currently on an intake freeze for cats, kittens, puppies, dogs, and rabbits. This means we can not take in any new rescue cats, dogs, or rabbits. The only cats, dogs, or rabbits that we will be accepting are returned pets, that is, those that were adopted from us, provided the former foster home is still volunteering with our rescue. If they are no longer fostering, then we will help you find another home or rescue for the cat, dog, or rabbit that you wish to return. We are only accepting ferrets, guinea pigs, and other small exotic caged pets as new intakes at this time due to space and financial issues.

During the months of July & August, we would really like to encourage adoption. If you choose to adopt a cat, dog, or rabbit from Acadiana Humane Society during the months of July & August, we will happily offer to allow you to adopt a second cat, dog, or rabbit from the same foster home, for only $25 more! Just be sure to mention that you saw this offer on our website when submitting your application to adopt. 

Acadiana Humane Society is currently low on funds for vet bills, as well as for pet food and supplies. If you would like to donate, please make checks and money orders out to Acadiana Humane Society and send to our mailing address at P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584-0536. Gift cards and small packages can also be sent to this address. There is a Paypal button on the side of this webpage if you would like to donate online. We can not do what we do without the support of donors and volunteers. Thank you to those who donate regularly, as well as those who donate what you can, when you can. Thank you also for our volunteers who give of your valuable time to help care for the animals and work events. You are why we are able to continue saving lives and caring for the animals already in our system. Thank you!

*Note: Dates, times, and locations are subject to change. Please refresh this page or check our Facebook page, our Twitter page, or our Instagram page for the latest updates to our event schedules. Thank you!

*Also, please be aware that while our office may be closed during some days, we will reply to emails and process applications as we can. We are a foster based rescue, so there is no public facility to visit. Our animals can be viewed online on our Facebook page andour Petfinder page. If you are interested in meeting one or more of our pets, please download and fill out our prescreening application and submit it to us via email or fax. Email is actually faster as we are not always in the office to check the fax machine. Once an application is processed, we can make an appointment to meet, or we will arrange to bring the selected pet to our next adoption event. Our animal rescue is 100% volunteer and all of our volunteers have families and jobs outside of the rescue, so it may take a little time to hear back from us. While we try to respond to everything within one business day, we get hundreds of emails and messages daily, and sometimes it is just not possible to reply to every one right away. Email is usually the fastest way to get a response, since replies can be made late at night if need be. We believe it is important to allow our volunteers some free time to spend with their families. Thank you for understanding.

Sue Rabeaux on July 22nd, 2015

Acadiana Humane Society‘s Director, Sue Rabeaux, has a birthday on July 25th. She will be spending her day volunteering at Petco trying to find home for adoptable rescue animals. We are asking that you stop by and help us celebrate her birthday. Her birthday wish is to be able to completely pay off our animal rescue’s current vet bills; and to be able to purchase microchips, vaccinations, flea medications, and all the pet food and other supplies needed for the month of July and possibly August too. In order to do this, she is asking her friends, family members, and anyone else who feels so inclined, to honor her birthday by making a donation to Acadiana Humane Society or to purchase much needed items for the animals. We are a 501c3 non-profit, no-kill animal rescue. If you are local, please stop by Petco on Louisiana Ave. and leave your gift for the animals at our adoption table. If you are not local, you can still donate by using the Paypal button on this website. You can also mail a check or money order made out to Acadiana Humane Society, or gift cards; to Acadiana Humane Society, ATTN: Sue Rabeaux; P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584-0536. Please see the post below for more donation ideas on our director’s birthday wish post.

Note: We will have a volunteer, Brent, available at Petco North when the store opens on Saturday. Brent will be there to accept donations for us, as well as to have t-shirt available for those who want one. For your $15 donation, you can choose a color t-shirt. For a $10 donation you can choose a white t-shirt. If you don’t want a t-shirt, you can still donate to help us with our vet bills. Please be aware that Sue and the adoptable animals will arrive at 11:00 am. The event will end around 2:00 pm, or possibly later if we are busy with potential adopters.

We have created a Facebook event page for Saturday if you would like to join online so you can invite your friends as well.
