Bunnies AboundAcadiana Humane Society currently has 14 rescued bunny rabbits. We are in need of sponsorship of $50.00 per bunny to help get them spayed or neutered and ready to be adopted. We are also accepting applications for rabbit foster homes, as the surrendering of unwanted Easter rabbits, baby chicks, & ducklings will begin soon. Please email ahspets@gmail.com if you would be interested in fostering rabbits or other small animals. Please see our website for our Paypal donation link or our YouCaring Fundraiser link: www.youcaring.com/acadianahumanesociety-721729 You can also send checks or money orders made out to Acadiana Humane Society to our mailing address at P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, Louisiana 70584-0536. If you would like to sponsor a bunny, or make a donation in any amount, it would really help our no-kill, non-profit animal rescue. Thank you!

Barney Update: The vet’s office said that Barney is still having neck pain. They gave him steroids, and have him on NSAIDS for the pain and inflamation. Barney is feeling a little down, so they did not yet start his heartworm treatment. They still plan to recheck his liver values, which were off before his neck pain started, when he is feeling better. If his liver value numbers are normal then they will start heartworm treatment. Donations are still needed for Barney’s vet bills! Barney’s vet bills are already over $900.00! Please, if anyone can sponsor Barney, he really needs your help! You can donate online, or you can call in a credit or debit card number directly to the vet who is taking care of Barney,Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic, by calling 225-755-3838 and asking them to apply your donation to the account of Acadiana Humane Society for Barney. Thank you! No donation is too small or too big!

Acadiana Humane Society currently has a lot of adoptable kittens and cats! Our foster homes are maxed out, our quarantine shelter is full of cats & kittens still under vet care, and we have filled the cat adoption centers in both Lafayette Petco locations. We need adopters for cats and kittens! We need foster homes! We also need sponsors to help us finish caring for the kittens and cats that need to see a vet before they can be available for adoption. If interested in fostering or adopting a cat, kitten, dog, or rabbit, please download our prescreening application from our website. Where it says “which animal are you interested in adopting” put “foster” or “adopt” and the type of animal you are interested in, or the name of the animal you want to adopt. Fosters must be willing to transport animals to one of our veterinarians for appointments, as well as to at least one adoption event per month once they are fully vetted and ready for adoption. Acadiana Humane Society provides all veterinary care. If we have donated pet food, we also provide that. If you have any questions before fostering or adopting, for fastest response, please email questions to ahspets@gmail.com with the word foster or adoption questions in the subject line. Thank you! To submit your application, please fill it out on your computer answering each questions clearly and completly, save it as a new file, then attach the file to an email to send to us. Or, you may print your application, fill it out clearly so we can read it, then scan or photograph it and email it to us. Putting “application to foster or adopt” in the subject line helps us to find it faster as we get a lot of email. Thank you!

Acadiana Humane Society will take in unwanted bunny rabbits, baby chicks, and ducklings as we can. Please email ahspets@gmail.com with a photo and information on the pet you need us to take. If you are willing to donate any supplies or a cage with the pet, please let us know in the email. We will respond as soon as we can and let you know when we can meet you to get them. We are also currently accepting other small animals that need rehoming such as guinea pigs, ferrets, iguanas, and other small caged pets. If the cage and supplies can be donated with the pets, then we can take them sooner. Donations to accept your pet are not required, but are tax deductable. Thank you!

We may even have a visit from volunteer Kelsey with some of our baby bunnies!

They will have application available that you can fill out. You can also download our application from our website and send it to us via email once completely filled out and saved.

Kitten food, cat litter, pet carriers, Petco gift cards, and checks made out to Acadiana Humane Society to be used for vet bills are what are most needed at this time.

It’s that time of year again. Please do not give animals as gifts. While Acadiana Humane Society will take in unwanted baby bunnies, chicks, & ducklings after Easter, we would rather not have to take in too many. Please do your research before getting any pet, and never give a pet as a gift if the recipient is not prepared to properly care for it for the rest of it’s life.

Barney, the 4 lbs. poodle mix that we pulled from Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter, has been in medical boarding at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic in Baton Rouge for the past week to evaluate his heart murmur, treat the blood in his bowels and urine, and determine the best route of treatment for his heart condition, as well as to kill the heart worms. The veterinarian has had Barney on blood pressure medication for his heart, as well as Doxycycline to prepare him for heart worm treatment. However, because of his size, the vet and our rescue agree, that we need to bring in a Cardiologist Veterinarian to determine exactly what his heart murmur is caused by (hole in heart, congenital birth defect, or heart worm damage, etc.) so that we can choose the fastest, yet safest method of treating his heart worms. We need to raise $350.00 ASAP to pay the Cardiologist on Friday afternoon when he has his appointment. We have faith that those who have been following Barney’s rescue story will want to help him. Please, if you can donate today, please do so! Any amount helps! Donations through WePay using the YouCaring fundraiser link are automatically deposited into Acadiana Humane Society’s main account on the next business day so we can pay the vet faster! https://www.youcaring.com/acadianahumanesociety-721729 If you prefer, we do also have a Paypal donation button here on our website. You can also call in a credit/debit card donation directly to Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic by calling 225-755-3838 and asking them to apply your credit/debit card donation on the account of Acadiana Humane Society for Barney’s Cardiologist bill. The Cardiologist will be going to Azalea Lake’s Vet Clinic to see Barney for his examination and tests. 

We can not provide this important veterinary care without your support and donations! Please help us help Barney! Thank you!

Acadiana Humane Society pulled Barney from Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter recently. We took him to Lafayette Veterinary Care Center to see about his bloody diarrhea and his very dark urine, which has since improved after being put on several medications. Poor baby also has a heart murmur, probably a congenital heart defect. He will need chest X-rays and further testing very soon. Donations are urgently needed as we are anticipating huge vet bills in the very near future for Barney. We have a Paypal button on our website, or you can donate via WePay using this YouCaring fundraiser, or you can send a check or money order made out to Acadiana Humane Society to our mailing address at P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, Louisiana 70584-0536. Barney has a vet appointment at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic on March 16, 2017 if you prefer to call in a donation directly to the vet where he will get chest X-rays and other tests done to determine the extent of his heart condition and his heartworms. These tests will help the vet to determine the best treatment to get him healthy and ready for adoption. If you choose to call in a donation, the phone number to Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic is 225-755-3838 and ask them to apply your credit/debit card donation on the account of Acadiana Humane Society. Our vet bill there is currently overwhelming and we are in urgent need to pay it down ASAP so that we can continue to save lives. Due to our outstanding vet bills, we are currently on an intake freeze for cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies. Please, your donation, no matter how small or how big, can help us get back to where we can continue to do what we do to save lives. We also have several rescue pets currently under veterinary care for special needs, as well as many that are in need of vaccinations, medication, and flea and heartworm prevention. We can not provide this important veterinary care without your support and donations! Please help us help them! Thank you!

Acadiana Humane Society still needs to raise A LOT of money to finish paying off our current overwhelming vet bills! We have had to institute a no intake moratorium on cats and dogs until our current vet bills are paid off! We have too many special needs animals that are still under veterinary care. We also have too many animals that need updated vaccinations and heartworm and flea prevention, and we just do not have the funds to do this. We are almost out of cat litter! We are out of kitten food! We need donations for vet bills, as well as donations of gift cards for Petco, Walmart, Target, Tractor Supply, and other local stores that sell cat litter and pet food and supplies.

Please, if anyone can donate, every little bit helps! Donations through WePay using the YouCaring fundraiser link are automatically depositied into Acadiana Humane Society’s main account on the next business day so we can pay on the vet bills faster! https://www.youcaring.com/acadianahumanesociety-721729 If you prefer, we do also have a Paypal donation button here on our website. You can also find our mailing address for checks or money orders made out to Acadiana Humane Society on our website. If anyone prefers to donate directly to our veterinarians, you can call in a credit or debit card payment and ask them to apply it to the account of Acadiana Humane Society.

We can accept donations of pet food and supplies in the donation boxes inside the lobby of Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery in Lafayette. As well as in the donation bin at either Petco Lafayette location. If donating at Petco, you MUST put AHS on each item so that the other rescues know that it is for Acadiana Humane Society. If you email us at ahspets@gmail.com with a photo of your donated pet food and supplies, and the location you dropped off at, we can pick it up ASAP as well as email you a tax donation receipt once we have picked it up.
