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. 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 on our website if you can’t foster or adopt, but would like to help us continue to save lives. We can accept kitten food and cat litter in the donation bin at Petco South Lafayette, or in the lobby of Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery Pkwy. 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/

Bunnies AboundAcadiana Humane Society currently has 14 rescued bunny rabbits. We are in need of sponsorship of $50.00 per bunny to help get them spayed or neutered and ready to be adopted. We are also accepting applications for rabbit foster homes, as the surrendering of unwanted Easter rabbits, baby chicks, & ducklings will begin soon. Please email ahspets@gmail.com if you would be interested in fostering rabbits or other small animals. Please see our website for our Paypal donation link or our YouCaring Fundraiser link: www.youcaring.com/acadianahumanesociety-721729 You can also send checks or money orders made out to Acadiana Humane Society to our mailing address at P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, Louisiana 70584-0536. If you would like to sponsor a bunny, or make a donation in any amount, it would really help our no-kill, non-profit animal rescue. Thank you!

Barney Update: The vet’s office said that Barney is still having neck pain. They gave him steroids, and have him on NSAIDS for the pain and inflamation. Barney is feeling a little down, so they did not yet start his heartworm treatment. They still plan to recheck his liver values, which were off before his neck pain started, when he is feeling better. If his liver value numbers are normal then they will start heartworm treatment. Donations are still needed for Barney’s vet bills! Barney’s vet bills are already over $900.00! Please, if anyone can sponsor Barney, he really needs your help! You can donate online, or you can call in a credit or debit card number directly to the vet who is taking care of Barney,Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic, by calling 225-755-3838 and asking them to apply your donation to the account of Acadiana Humane Society for Barney. Thank you! No donation is too small or too big!

Acadiana Humane Society currently has a lot of adoptable kittens and cats! Our foster homes are maxed out, our quarantine shelter is full of cats & kittens still under vet care, and we have filled the cat adoption centers in both Lafayette Petco locations. We need adopters for cats and kittens! We need foster homes! We also need sponsors to help us finish caring for the kittens and cats that need to see a vet before they can be available for adoption. If interested in fostering or adopting a cat, kitten, dog, or rabbit, please download our prescreening application from our website. Where it says “which animal are you interested in adopting” put “foster” or “adopt” and the type of animal you are interested in, or the name of the animal you want to adopt. Fosters must be willing to transport animals to one of our veterinarians for appointments, as well as to at least one adoption event per month once they are fully vetted and ready for adoption. Acadiana Humane Society provides all veterinary care. If we have donated pet food, we also provide that. If you have any questions before fostering or adopting, for fastest response, please email questions to ahspets@gmail.com with the word foster or adoption questions in the subject line. Thank you! To submit your application, please fill it out on your computer answering each questions clearly and completly, save it as a new file, then attach the file to an email to send to us. Or, you may print your application, fill it out clearly so we can read it, then scan or photograph it and email it to us. Putting “application to foster or adopt” in the subject line helps us to find it faster as we get a lot of email. Thank you!

Acadiana Humane Society will take in unwanted bunny rabbits, baby chicks, and ducklings as we can. Please email ahspets@gmail.com with a photo and information on the pet you need us to take. If you are willing to donate any supplies or a cage with the pet, please let us know in the email. We will respond as soon as we can and let you know when we can meet you to get them. We are also currently accepting other small animals that need rehoming such as guinea pigs, ferrets, iguanas, and other small caged pets. If the cage and supplies can be donated with the pets, then we can take them sooner. Donations to accept your pet are not required, but are tax deductable. Thank you!

They will have application available that you can fill out. You can also download our application from our website and send it to us via email once completely filled out and saved. Donations will be accepted at our adoption table. Kitten food, cat litter, pet carriers, Petco gift cards, and checks made out to Acadiana Humane Society to be used for vet bills are what are most needed at this time.

It’s that time of year again. Please do not give animals as gifts. While Acadiana Humane Society will take in unwanted baby bunnies, chicks, & ducklings after Easter, we would rather not have to take in too many. Please do your research before getting any pet, and never give a pet as a gift if the recipient is not prepared to properly care for it for the rest of it’s life.

Barney, the 4 lbs. poodle mix that we pulled from Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter, has been in medical boarding at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic in Baton Rouge for the past week to evaluate his heart murmur, treat the blood in his bowels and urine, and determine the best route of treatment for his heart condition, as well as to kill the heart worms. The veterinarian has had Barney on blood pressure medication for his heart, as well as Doxycycline to prepare him for heart worm treatment. However, because of his size, the vet and our rescue agree, that we need to bring in a Cardiologist Veterinarian to determine exactly what his heart murmur is caused by (hole in heart, congenital birth defect, or heart worm damage, etc.) so that we can choose the fastest, yet safest method of treating his heart worms. We need to raise $350.00 ASAP to pay the Cardiologist on Friday afternoon when he has his appointment. We have faith that those who have been following Barney’s rescue story will want to help him. Please, if you can donate today, please do so! Any amount helps! Donations through WePay using the YouCaring fundraiser link are automatically deposited into Acadiana Humane Society’s main account on the next business day so we can pay the vet faster! https://www.youcaring.com/acadianahumanesociety-721729 If you prefer, we do also have a Paypal donation button here on our website. You can also call in a credit/debit card donation directly to Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic by calling 225-755-3838 and asking them to apply your credit/debit card donation on the account of Acadiana Humane Society for Barney’s Cardiologist bill. The Cardiologist will be going to Azalea Lake’s Vet Clinic to see Barney for his examination and tests. 

We can not provide this important veterinary care without your support and donations! Please help us help Barney! Thank you!
