Acadiana Humane Society volunteers were honored to have our animal rescue nominated by Chip’s adoptive parents for the Tractor to Tractor Rescue to Rescue Contest in August 2018! We were surprised and amazed that we made it to the top ten! We were all overjoyed when it was announced that we made 3rd place and won $3,500.00! This will go a long way to pay off our current vet bills so that we can continue to save more lives! Thank you to Chip’s family for nominating our rescue! Thank you to everyone who shared and voted for Chip! Thank you to Tractor Supply Co. for this opportunity, and for the wonderful prize to help the animals! Thank you to Tractor Supply Co. in Opelousas for allowing us to host adoption events and fundraisers at your store, and for presenting us with the giant $3.5K check!

Did you know you can double your donation to Acadiana Humane Society TODAY on SOLA Giving Day? Donate now, May 10th to our no-kill, non-profit animal rescue through the following link, and Lafayette Veterinary Care Center will double your donation up to $2,500.00! Help us raise over $5,000.00 to help save and improve the lives of #animals, and the people that love them, in our community! We provide many services to Acadiana and surrounding areas: We rescue dogs, cats, rabbits, small exotic pets, birds, and even farm animals. We provide proper veterinary care and rehabilitation before these animals are made available to the public for adoption. We have a Pet Food Bank to provide pet food and supplies to those that have fallen on hard times, so that they can keep their pets. We also have a Spay Neuter Program for low income families and individuals to help them spay their cat, dog, or rabbit. We provide educational opportunities for local children’s clubs and schools when we have the opportunity. Please donate if you can! Your gift will go twice as far today! Thank you!

A special thank you goes out to our friends at Lafayette Veterinary Care Center for their generosity with their matching grant for today’s fundraiser! https://www.southlouisianagivingday.org/AHS

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 ahspets@gmail.com for the fastest response. http://www.acadianahumane.org/application
