Please be sure to show this flyer when ordering your dinner at Blaze Pizza this Friday night between 5pm and 8pm so that a percentage of your purchase goes to Acadiana Humane Society! Our volunteers will be on hand to accept pet food & supply donations and monetary donations. We will have fundraiser items available at our table outside. Blaze is located at 111 Meadow Farm Rd. in Lafayette next to Five Below & Petsmart (not far from Costco). Help us raise funds to enable our volunteers to continue to save lives. Hope to see you there!

On January 24, 2019, our animal rescue’s Toyota Highlander Hybrid had some serious brake failure. Everyone is fine, but we need a new brake pump and relay to get the vehicle back on the road. In 2011 Acadiana Humane Society won Toyota’s 100 Cars For Good Facebook contest. Toyota donated a brand new, gas efficient Hybrid SUV. This vehicle has been driven over 200,000 miles doing animal rescue work, saving and improving the lives of thousands of animals since then! She has been very loyal to us, and we do not want to loose her. Especially since we are an all volunteer, non-profit animal rescue on a very tight shoestring budget. We can not afford to purchase even a used vehicle! While the Highlander Hybrid is a wonderful, gas efficient vehicle; it is more expensive to repair a hybrid vehicle than a regular one. The parts are on order, but will cost $3,089.00 for parts and service. Donations are urgently needed so that we can bail the car out of the service department when it’s ready! Please donate via our website’s Paypal link or other options listed on our donate page: http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/donate  Please donate! Any amount helps! Acadiana Humane Society can not do any adoption events, veterinarian runs, or anything else without this vehicle! Until the car is repaired and paid for, we have no choice but to stop taking in new rescues. Our next scheduled adoption event will need to be canceled if we can not get the car back in time, and if no one else steps up to transport the animals to Petco for us. Please help us get back on the road to rescue!

Acadiana Humane Society has canceled all adoptions for this weekend due to the weather. Everyone please stay safe. Protect your animals. Please don’t drive through flooded roads. If you were scheduled to adopt, or planning to adopt, we will have another adoption event at a later date. We will also reschedule all adoption appointments to another day. Storm preparations to care for the animals has depleted available funds. Donations are urgently requested for ongoing needs for pet food, supplies, and vet bills. If you can spare even $5 that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Cassian was rescued from St. Landry Parish Animal Control by Acadiana Humane Society volunteers in August 2017. Our volunteers were there pulling another cat, when Cassian kept pawing out of his cage at them, and meowing as if to say “Me too! Take me too please!!” How could we leave him there? He has been neutered, microchipped, and kept current on vaccinations. Cassian did test positive for FIV, but has not had any health issues since in our care. 

Cassian is very sweet and well behaved. He loves attention and will call you when he needs some loving. He can be talkative when he wants to. He will carry on a conversation with you when he feels like it. He loves to be petted. He loves to snuggle, and will roll over for a good belly rub. 

He hasn’t been adopted, or even had any interest at all, since he’s been in our no-kill shelter. Thankfully Cassian has been accepted into Best Friends Animal Society and will be leaving to go to their sanctuary on, or shortly after, June 9th! Sponsors are urgently needed to help get him to Utah! He will be traveling with 3 other local FIV+ cats that were also accepted by Best Friends. Please donate through PayPal and note that it is for Cassian’s trip to Best Friends. If Paypal doesn’t let you make a note, just send us an email to let us know. Thank you!  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/acadiana

Please help us get Cassian out of our shelter and into a beautiful sanctuary with other cats like him. Here are pictures of the other 3 FIV+ cats from other rescues that are also going to Best Friends at the same time:
