Great Harvest of Acadiana has a giving program and Acadiana Humane Society is participating in August’s contest. They have three jars in their bakery each month for customers to cast a vote for one of the charities. Every purchase equals one vote! Stop by Great Harvest at 854 Kaliste Saloom Road in Lafayette, and when you purchase your bread or other baked goods, you will receive a token to cast your vote. Please consider tossing your token in the jar for Acadiana Humane Society. If we win, Great Harvest will donate $200.00. If we lose, we still win, because they will donate $50.00. This is the last week to vote for Acadiana Humane Society!  Thank you!

Some of the ways Acadiana Humane Society helps our community:

  • Rescues pets of all kinds, not just dogs & cats.
  • Provides all basic vet care of our rescued pets.
  • Finds homes for pets in our care.
  • Offers a Spay/Neuter Program for qualified low income.
  • Has a Pet Food Bank to help people keep their pets.
  • Provides a free Lost & Found service to post pets.
  • Offers Courtesy Posting to help rehome pets.

We had 14 vet appointments yesterday! Two puppies were spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, fecals, exams, etc. Seven kittens and one cat were spayed, tested, vaccinated, microchipped, fecals, ear mite treatments, etc. One cat had skull X-rays and exam to determine cause of stumbling, lethargy, and sneezing large amounts of blood. Another cat had blood work, to determine cause of giant, bulbous chin and red gums; as well as laser treatment and medications to treat the problem. We also took two sick ferrets in for exams and treatment. We really need donations and adoptions ASAP so we can pay down our vet bills as we have another litter of dumped kittens to be spayed/neutered, etc. If you can help, please send PayPal donations to info@acadianahumane.org or ahspets@gmail.com or use the PayPal button on our website. You can also send donations via Amazon to ahspets@gmail.com. Another option is to call in a credit card payment directly to one of our vets. Just be sure to tell them to put it on Acadiana Humane Society’s vet bills. Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic is our largest vet bill, and their phone number is 225-755-3838. If you prefer to pay on our smaller vet bill at Pet Care Animal Hospital, their phone number is 337-988-1100. You can also mail in a check or money order donation if you prefer.

We will also have a table set up inside the store with adoptable cats, kittens, guinea pigs, and possibly a special needs bunny rabbit. Stop by and visit with us! Petco South is also running a guinea pig special from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday while we are there and you can purchase your guinea pig cage/kits for half price!

We will also be accepting donations to help with vet bills, as well as pet food & supplies, and Petco gift cards, at our adoption tables. The donation bin in the lobby of Petco South is for Acadiana Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank. If you prefer donations to go to our rescue animals, either hand them to Sue or Moriah at our adoption table, or write AHS on the items before leaving in the Petco South donation bin. Any items in the donation bin not marked “AHS” will be used for the Pet Food Bank recipients to help them keep their pets during hard times.

Acadiana Humane Society needs your help! We currently owe our vet at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic $1,047.96 for recent spays, sick rescues, and emergencies. We also owe Pet Care Animal Hospital $123.00 for the care of sick kittens and puppies, and some vaccinations. We currently have numerous vet appointments for this week alone, and we must get our vet bills down as quickly as possible!

On June 10, 2014 Acadiana Humane Society took in a litter of white kittens and their mom that were found in a dumpster. They were very sick with upper respiratory infections, eye infections, and intestinal parasites including coccidea. All of the original donations for them have already been spent to get them healthy enough to be spayed. They have a spay appointment this week, and we need to raise an additional $700.00 ASAP to pay their vet bills for spay, feline combo testing, fecals, vaccinations, and microchips. We also have two puppies that are being spayed this week, and will need to raise an additional $300.00 for their spays, vaccinations, fecals, microchips, heartworm pills, and flea medication. Plus we took in a sick kitten today that was dumped, and we will need to get her vet care ASAP. Poor girl has infected eyes and bald spots which could be ringworm or parasites. We will have to do some major shuffling to make room for her & keep her quarantined from the rest of the cats & kittens since we are already full. Donations are urgently needed for Purina Kitten Chow, Purina Naturals, cat litter, & vet bills!

PayPal donations can be sent to info@acadianahumane.org or ahspets@gmail.com or using the PayPal button on our website. There is a Paypal button and our mailing address on our website. http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/how-you-can-help/ You can also send donations via Amazon to ahspets@gmail.com Another option is to call in a credit card payment directly to one of our vets.
