Our featured adoptable pet today is Penny. Penelope, also known as Penny, is one year old. She is a sweet purebred Beagle. Penny gets along well with the dog and cat in her foster home. She is a playful pup. She enjoys going to the dog park, and going for runs on her leash. She really likes being outside in general. If you let her, she will snuggle on the bed or couch with you. She isn’t housebroken yet (her foster mom is working on that), but she is crate trained.

Penny is spayed, heartworm negative and on the ProHart Injection, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. She is available for adoption through Acadiana Humane Society.

To adopt a dog from Acadiana Humane Society, please download & complete our prescreening application. Email your completed application to for the fastest response.

Acadiana Humane Society needs your help please!

Acadiana Humane Society is in urgent need of cat litter! We can accept donations of any cat litter at one of our drop off locations. As well as money donated through PayPal that we can use to purchase cat litter. Gift cards and checks can be mailed to us. PayPal donation button is on the side of this webpage. Donations can also be marked AHS and placed in the donation bins at either Lafayette Petco, or at the Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery. You can also email us at or text 337-371-5477, to make other arrangements if you prefer. Any and all help is appreciated as we go through over 100 lbs of clumping cat litter per week, even more when we only have clay litter! Thank you!

We also need other supplies as well, but cat litter and vet bills being paid are are two largest needs at this time. If anyone wants to donate other items, we always need cat food, kitten food, dog food, rabbit pellets, fresh or frozen produce, small animal paper bedding, flea prevention, cleaning supplies, business envelopes, printer paper, and basic office and shelter supplies. If you leave any items at any of our drop off locations, please mark them AHS to be sure they know it is for our rescue as they also accept donations for other non-profits.

We are also in need of donations to help us pay off our current vet bills so we can continue to provide the proper vet care to all of our rescued animals. We still owe money to four different veterinary offices. You can either donate to us and we will pay the vet bills, or you can also donate directly to one of our veterinarians. When making a payment directly to one of our vets, please be sure to tell them to apply your payment to the account of Acadiana Humanw Society. Thank you!

These three vets will take credit/debit card donations over the phone:

1. Lafayette Veterinary Care Center (337) 984-7611

2. Lafayette Spay Neuter Clinic in Scott, La. (337) 408-8667

3. Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic in Baton Rouge, La. (225) 755-3838

This vet will only take cash or check payments at his office:

1. Pet Care Animal Hospital on Republic Ave. in Lafayette. (Off Kaliste Saloom)

Acadiana Humane Society volunteers will be at Petco South Lafayette from Noon to 3 pm on February 3rd with adoptable animals. This is both an adoption event and a fundraiser. Celebrate love with us by finding love thru adoption, or sharing love by donating. There will be treats available for humans and pets! We will be accepting pet food & supplies, as well as cash, checks, gift cards, and credit/debit card donations at our table. If you would like to adopt, we recommend downloading our prescreening application ahead of time and submitting it via email so we can get you preapproved before the event! We have adoptable cats, kittens, dogs, rabbits, potbelly pigs, a ferret, and a bearded dragon! While we can not bring every animal to our adoption event, if you submit an application at least two business days before the event along with a request to bring a particular pet with us, then we will do our best to have that pet there if it is possible. Petco South is located at 609 Settler’s Trace Blvd in Lafayette, Louisiana

This tiny 1.1 lbs. kitten was rescued December 11th and is currently being hospitalized at Fontenot Veterinary Clinic. He was found crawling across the road. He doesn’t appear to have any broken bones. But he does have a head injury, a prolapsed rectum, and is dehydrated. As of today, he still won’t get up, and he appears to possibly be blind from the head trauma. He is eating and drinking good today. Dr. Fontenot said he is definitely not out of the woods yet. But if we can keep him hydrated he may have a good chance. He doesn’t seem to have any injuries except for the head injury, and soreness across his body. Seems that he may have been under a hood and got caught by a fan. The vet said the swelling on the brain could cause temporary blindness, as well as balance issues which would explain why he won’t stand. This is just one of many cats, rabbits, and dogs that we have taken in that needed lots of vet care. We can not do what we do withour your support! Donations would be greatly appreciated!


Barney the tiny 4 lbs. dog that we rescued from animal control that was so very sick, and was hospitalized at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic for many months, has been adopted! Our dog adoption fee is only $100.00, but his vet bills were much, much higher then that. We had several generous donors in the beginning, but we still owe our veterinarians thousands of dollars. If anyone can please donate to help us pay off our outstanding vet bills we would greatly appreciate it! We can not continue to do the life saving work that we do without your help! We have a Paypal donation button on our website, as well as our mailing address if you prefer to send a check or money order made out to Acadiana Humane Society. We even have a YouCaring fundraiser you can donate through. We are a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue, so please consider donating to help us continue to save lives before the end of the year! We would love to pay off all of our vet bills before the New Year!
