Please help! Acadiana Humane Society has an urgent need to place cats & dogs into wonderful adoptive homes or other no-kill rescues ASAP! Due to numerous illegally dumped animals we are currently over capacity & do not have the space or finances to properly care for them all. We have been working very hard to place them and to raise funds, but it is not working. Please, promote adoption! Please, if you are a no-kill rescue and can take even just one dog or cat, they are ALL spayed or neutered, had initial vaccinations, and are tested and on prevention. Many are also microchipped. If you would like to adopt a cat, dog, or rabbit, please download our prescreening application by clicking here. Then, save it on your computer, fill it out, and save it as a new file. Then attach the completed application to an email and send it to us at ahspets@gmail.com. We also currently have many spayed/neutered rabbits available for adoption. 

If you can’t adopt, please do what you can to help us raise much needed funds to care for these rescued animals. There are many ways to help financially.

One way to help, is when you do your Holiday shopping at AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to Acadiana Humane Society Please bookmark this link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/72-1468289 and support us every time you shop. The more people that support us this way, the bigger the check from AmazonSmiles.

Acadiana Humane Society Inc

Another easy way to help: If you normally go grocery shopping at Albertsons, then you can help Acadiana Humane Society by using one of our Albertson’s Community Partner key ring cards when you check out. We will have some available at our Petco South adoption event. Or, you can print your own using the image below. You can also save this photo on your smartphone and have them scan it at the register when you shop.

Another easy way, is to do some of your holiday shopping through Three Geeks Studio, which is run by three of our volunteers. A portion of the money raised from the sales of their handcrafted jewelry and gifts goes to help the animals of Acadiana Humane Society.

You can also like and watch our Acadiana Humane Society Fundraiser Facebook page for when we list items for sale to help raise money for our rescue. We will be listing some items over the Thanksgiving break. Many of these are brand new items that were donated for the purpose of raising money for the rescue. There will also be some collectible items, as well as some gently used items. Please read each items description to see if the item is new or not. Also, if you have any items you would like to donate for this purpose, please email us at ahspets@gmail.com with pictures and information.

You can also donate directly to us through Paypal using the Paypal button on the side of this webpage. Or, by mailing checks, money orders, and gift cards to stores that sell pet food & supplies to Acadiana Humane Society; P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, Louisiana 70584-0536. If you prefer to donate pet food, supplies, or other item directly to us, please email us at ahspets@gmail.com to arrange a pickup. Or, you can leave items in our donation box in the lobby of Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery in Lafayette. We can also accept donations via Amazon by sending them to ahspets@gmail.com. If you watch our website and Facebook page to know when we are at adoption or community events, you can also donate directly to us at our adoption table at those events. If donating in person at one of our adoption events, we do have a Square Reader account and can accept donations via credit/debit cards that way. Thank you!

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.
