Sue Rabeaux on March 6th, 2019

Acadiana Humane Society volunteers have been busy so far in 2019 between new rescues including puppies, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs, and a stray parakeet. As well as the Krewe des Chiens dog parade, and other fundraisers and events. We would like to give a shout out of thanks to UL GLASS for their members volunteering with us during the dog parade this year! Thank you also to the others who volunteered with us for the dog parade and other events!

We are currently very full and starting the year out very low on funding, as donations always slow down after the new year begins. We are in urgent need of donations to help with vet care on our newest rescues, as well as to purchase pet food and cat litter. You can donate through one of many options (Paypal, check or money order, etc.) listed on our donation page: http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/donate

Below are the events that we plan to participate in the near future (event participation is subject to change due to availability of volunteers). Please like and follow Acadiana Humane Society on Facebook for the most recent updates on events, new animal intakes, and newly adopted pets.

Thank you to those who donated to Acadiana Humane Society before the mew year! Now is the purrfect time to start off 2019 by supporting your local animal rescue! We still need to raise $1,715.00 to pay off our 2018 vet bills. Any size donation is much appreciated. It all adds up to help us continue to save lives. We have no paid staff. We are a no-kill, 501c3 non-profit animal rescue run 100% by volunteers. So your donation will be used to pay vet bills for the rescue animals. Until we pay off these vet bills we are not able to take in any new rescues. Please help Acadiana Humane Society? continue our mission to save one life at a time!

You can donate through one of many options (Paypal, check or money order, etc.) listed on our donation page: http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/donate 

If you prefer, we also set up a Fundraiser through Facebook.

Here is a collage of just a few of the rescues we saved in 2018. Please help us to continue to save and improve the lives of more homeless and in danger animals in 2019!
