On Friday, November 14th Acadiana Humane Society held a silent auction and Marc Gunn concert fundraiser. A big thank you to Marc Gunn, and also Regan Coussan with The Whiskey Bay Rovers, for donating their time and their musical talents! While attendance was minimal, only 15 people counting volunteers and musicians, we had a great time for a great cause. The music was fun, and some even sang along. Even though we were small, the generosity was great and we were still able to raise over $300.00 for the animal rescue! Those that shopped at our silent auction were able to save anywhere from 25% to 99% off of retail value because there wasn’t much competition in the bidding. Many thanks to those that donated items for the silent auction, as that is where most of our income came from. We still have many items left that did not get any bids, so we will be hosting an online auction via Facebook in early December. If anyone else wants to donate items for that fundraiser, please contact us at ahspets@gmail.com or 337-371-5477. Thank you!

On Friday, November 14th Acadiana Humane Society is holding a silent auction and Marc Gunn concert fundraiser. It will be held at Covenant Community Center at 300 E. Martial Ave. in Lafayette. Doors will open at 6pm for the Acadiana Humane Society silent auction and Three Geeks Studio jewelry sales. Proceeds from the concert ticket sales, and from the silent auction and jewelry sales will go to help the rescue animals of Acadiana Humane Society. At 7pm Marc Gunn will be in concert playing Celtic music, as well as songs from his Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers album. Concert tickets are only $8.00! You can purchase your tickets online at Event Brite.

Marc Gunn is an award-winning rhythm and folk musician inspired by Celtic culture, science fiction, fantasy, and cats. He breathes new life into the autoharp, which continues to surprise musical veterans and fans a like for it’s unique sound and spirited energy. It’s like a satirical jam session between The Clancy Brothers and Weird Al Yankovic. It’s Celtic music, the traditional and the twisted.

During the break time of the concert you will get one last chance to bid on the silent auction items. Before the evening is over, we will announce the winners in the silent auction. One of our volunteers will be at the auction tables to accept payment so winners can pick up their goodies. Payments accepted for the silent auction will be cash, a check made out to Acadiana Humane Society, or credit/debit cards.

We had 14 vet appointments yesterday! Two puppies were spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, fecals, exams, etc. Seven kittens and one cat were spayed, tested, vaccinated, microchipped, fecals, ear mite treatments, etc. One cat had skull X-rays and exam to determine cause of stumbling, lethargy, and sneezing large amounts of blood. Another cat had blood work, to determine cause of giant, bulbous chin and red gums; as well as laser treatment and medications to treat the problem. We also took two sick ferrets in for exams and treatment. We really need donations and adoptions ASAP so we can pay down our vet bills as we have another litter of dumped kittens to be spayed/neutered, etc. If you can help, please send PayPal donations to info@acadianahumane.org or ahspets@gmail.com or use the PayPal button on our website. You can also send donations via Amazon to ahspets@gmail.com. Another option is to call in a credit card payment directly to one of our vets. Just be sure to tell them to put it on Acadiana Humane Society’s vet bills. Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic is our largest vet bill, and their phone number is 225-755-3838. If you prefer to pay on our smaller vet bill at Pet Care Animal Hospital, their phone number is 337-988-1100. You can also mail in a check or money order donation if you prefer. Our mailing address is Acadiana Humane Society; P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584-0536  

Thank you!
