Dog Days of Summer during the month of July!

Dog Days of Summer at Great Harvest of Acadiana supports Acadiana Humane Society: For every bag of dog treats that are purchased throughout the months of July and August, Great Harvest will be donating $1.00 to Acadiana Humane Society. 
These dog treats are 100% whole wheat: nothing but the best for man’s best friend! 
Please go see them at 354A Kaliste Saloom Road in Lafayette, Louisiana and support an important cause today!

 

 

Acadiana Humane Society is full! We have no more room until our numbers are greatly reduced. We also need to raise over $4,000.00 to pay off all of our current vet bills! Since we are no-kill this means we need adopters and sponsors to be able to continue doing what we do to save other animals. Our waiting list is also full at this time. We have several animals from various animal control agencies and owner surrenders that are already on our waiting list. As soon as a spot opens up, we will take in unwanted & in danger pets from our waiting list. We will of course also take in any returned pet that was adopted from us, as we try to reserve a spot for returns. We are out of cat litter and almost out of cat and kitten food! We are out of produce for the 17 rabbits and the livestock! If you can help, please consider adopting, fostering an animal already in our care, or donating to help us pay our vet bills and provide food and necessary supplies for our current rescued animals. Our application to adopt or foster is also on our website. Please email in your application for fastest response. Thank you. http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/how-you-can-help

Acadiana Humane Society volunteers will be at the Acadiana Can Cutter’s Dog Days of Summer event on Saturday, July 29th at 6:00PM. We will have a table there with brochures/info on our no-kill animal rescue. We will be accepting donations at our table to help with our overwhelming vet bills. We will have Rally to Rescue t-shirts available for a $10 donation. We will also have handmade beaded bracelets and necklaces with pet themed charms available for a $5 donation. Bring your dog to this fun event at Fabacher Field at 221 La Neuville Rd. in Youngsville.

Acadiana Humane has too many cats, rabbits, & dogs! We need your help to feed them & get them vet care!

Acadiana Humane Society is currently overwhelmed with too many cats, kittens, & 19 rabbits! This is in addition to our dogs, ferrets, mini potbelly pigs, goat, ducks, & chickens. We are in urgent need of donations of money for vet bills, & pet food & supplies. We can also accept gift cards to purchase pet food, feed, hay, pet supplies, & fresh produce. If anyone would like to purchase & donate we need Purina Pro Plan cat food (chicken or turkey), Purina Kitten Chow, any cat litter, Carefresh Paper bedding, rabbit pellets, Zupreme Grain Free ferret food, Poultry feed, goat feed, Mazuri Mini Pig Youth Food, Timothy or Orchard Hay, and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits! (We still have a pallet of donated dog food. But no one donates for the other critters!) Email us ahspets@gmail.com with “donate” in the subject line so we can make arrangements to meet you to pick up donations. You can also text 337-371-5477 to let us know you have donations. Non perishable donations can be left at one of two drop off locations: Inside the lobby of Bridge Storage in Ambassador Caffery Pkwy in Lafayette, Or, in the donation bin at Petco on Settler’s Trace Blvd or Louisiana Ave in Lafayette. If leaving at either Petco, PLEASE write AHS on the donations to be sure we receive it, as we share the Petco bins with two other rescues. Thank you! We have a Paypal donation button, and our mailing address, here on our website as well.

Because we are so full, we are not currently taking in any cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, or rabbits at this time. We have a waiting list if you would like to email us with photos and information to be added to the wait list. Send to ahspets@gmail.com and write waiting list in the subject line. If you adopted a cat, rabbit, or other small animal, we always make room for returns when we can. For dog returns, because our dog kennels are no longer any good, we may need to have you foster until we can find them a new home or another rescue to take them. Thank you!

Our current dog kennels need to be replaced ASAP!

Acadiana Humane Society is currently over capacity on dogs due to our old, damaged dog kennels. We are no longer taking in any dogs until our current dogs are adopted and the dog kennels are all replaced, as repairing is no longer good enough. They have been repaired too many times already. 

We are currently seeking new volunteers willing to foster small animals, cats, and dogs that are already in our system. If we can get new foster homes, then it would help relieve some stress from our currently overworked volunteers. We also need adopters for many of our adoptable cats, dogs, rabbits, and other small animals. If you would like to foster, or adopt, the initial prescreening application process is the same. There is a spot on the application to put the name of the pet you want to adopt. If you are wanting to foster, just write “foster (insert type of animals)” on the line that says name of pet to adopt. Sending your completed application attached to an email is the fastest way to get the processing started. You can download the WORD document for our prescreening application from our website by clicking this link. We are also currently out of funding for our Spay/Neuter Fund to help low income families and indiviuals, as well as low on funding for everyday upkeep of our non-profit, no-kill animal rescue. We are dangerously low on cat litter (both clumping for the cats & clay for the kittens), and also very low on kitten food! We are a 100% volunteer rescue group, so your donation goes 100% to the care and feeding of the rescue animals of Acadiana Humane Society. We do have a Paypal donation button here on our website if you can’t foster or adopt, but would like to help us continue to save lives. We can accept cat, kitten, & rabbit food, cat litter, & other pet supplies in the donation bin at Petco South Lafayette, Petco North Lafayette or in the lobby of Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery Pkwy. When leaving donations at either Petco, please write AHS on them so the other rescues know that they are intended for us. If you prefer to donate pet food and supplies directly, you email or text us to make arrangements to meet with one of us. Or, watch our Facebook page for our events and bring your donations to us there. Thank you! http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/how-you-can-help/

Acadiana Humane Society’s dog kennels are old, rusting, and falling apart. One of our dogs escaped yesterday, and we had to temporarily repair the fence. We are in need of at least six new 10 x 10 x 6 dog kennels. We like these that are sold at Tractor Supply because we can easily connect them together to make larger kennels using fewer panels, and for another $99 per section we can add a roof to protect the dogs from the sun and rain. We have a wish list from Tractor Supply Co. with other items we need as well. If anyone can order some to donate to us, we will gladly pick them up at either the Breaux Bridge or Opelousas Tractor Supplies. Thank you! Click here for our wishlist. We will accept and use any dog kennels, these are just the ones we prefer if possible. 

Acadiana Humane Society is currently over capacity on dogs due to our old, damaged dog kennels. We are no longer taking in any dogs until our current dogs are adopted and the dog kennels are all replaced, as repairing is no longer good enough. They have been repaired too many times already. We are also over capacity on cats and kittens, and are not taking in any more at this time. We will still make room for adopted cats and small animals that need to be returned. The only animals that we can take in at this time are small, caged animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, iguanas, pet birds, etc. We are currently seeking new volunteers willing to foster small animals, cats, and dogs that are already in our system.
