Many of you know that Acadiana Humane Society, with the help of many voters on Facebook, won a 2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid for our animal rescue through Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program. This gas efficient vehicle has enabled our rescue to log over 128,000 miles doing animal rescue since we have had it. As of now, our Highlander sits at the Toyota dealer because it needs repair that includes a brand new hybrid battery. They estimate we will need $6,200.00 when it is ready in about two weeks. If anyone would like to help us be able to pay this bill, so that we can pick up our Highlander and continue to do what we do to help the rescue animals of Acadiana, please feel free to donate what you can. We have a Paypal button here on our website. You can also send us a check or money order made out to Acadiana Humane Society to our mailing address at P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, Louisana 70584-0536. Please include a note with your donation if you would like us to use it to repair our Toyota. Thank you!

The 2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid can hold quite a few crates of rescue animals for transporting, as well as lots of dog and cat food for hungry animals in need!

Acadiana Humane Society can use your donations of Mardi Gras beads and plush throws to use at the dog parade. We are accepting donations now through January 28th in our donation box in the lobby of Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery Pkwy in Lafayette. We do not have time to sort the beads at this late date, so please have beads already sorted and ready to throw. Thank you!

 Acadiana Humane Society volunteers will be at the following upcoming events: 

Petco

*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 and our 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, and sometimes the fax fails. 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.

While we won’t be taking phone calls during this time, we will be checking the email once a day. Please feel free to go ahead and submit applications on any of our available pets, and we will process applications as soon as possible. When submitting an application via email, you will get an automatic email reply that lets you know that it went through. If you did not get the automatic email reply, then your application was not sent to the correct email address, please try again.

Sometimes the fax machine fails, so this helps us have a way to reach you if it did not come through. 

Also, if you already have an approved adoption pending, we will still meet with you over the holiday to finalize the adoption as planned.

If you would like to support Acadiana Humane Society with your tax deductible donation, there are several ways you can do this:

  2. Paypal donations to spay@acadianahumane.org will go to our Spay/Neuter Fund to help qualified low income individuals and familes get their cat, dog, or rabbit spayed or neutered.
  3. Mail a check or money order made out to Acadiana Humane Society to our snail mail address at P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584. As long as the envelope is postmarked by December 31, 2015 we can provide a 2015 donation receipt.
  4. Mail coupons for cat, dog, rabbit, and other small animal food, cat litter, small animal bedding, and other pet supplies to our snail mail address: Acadiana Humane Society; P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584.
  5. Mail gift cards to Petco, Petsmart, Walmart, Target, Ranch Outlet, Tractor Supply, and other places that carry pet food and supplies to our snail mail address: Acadiana Humane Society; P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584.
  6. Purchase pet food and supplies and donate them to us directly at our drop off location. We have a couple of donation boxes inside the lobby of Bridge Storage located at 2510 Ambassador Caffery in Lafayette. If you email us a photo of your donation, a basic list of items donated, and the value of those items, we can provide you with a donation receipt via email once we pick up and verify the donation.

Acadiana Humane Society‘s office will be closed Friday, December 11th through Tuesday, December 15th. There won’t be anyone available to take calls during this time at the office or fax numbers. Email will be checked once a day, and forwarded to other volunteers to handle, so please email in any questions or applications. We have received quite a few applications on Louie and on some of the kittens. They are not quite ready yet, as we are dealing with some health issues, so decisions have not yet been made on which homes are the best match for them. One of our volunteers will be calling everyone to let them know either way if they were chosen or not once we are ready. We appreciate your patience.

We will still be having two adoption events this weekend, as another volunteer will be hosting these events. You can meet adoptable cats and dogs at Petco North on Saturday from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Kristy will be at Petsmart as well on Sunday from 12:00 Noon until 3:00 PM.
