Acadiana Humane Society has lots of cats, kittens, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs that need wonderful adoptive homes in time for the holidays! We have been working very hard to place them and to raise funds, but there is still so much more that can be done. Please, promote adoption! All cats, kittens, and dogs are spayed or neutered, had initial vaccinations, and are tested and on prevention before they are available for adoption. Many are also microchipped. If you would like to adopt a cat, kitten, dog, or rabbit, please download our prescreening application by clicking here. Then, save it on your computer, fill it out, and save it as a new file. Then attach the completed application to an email and send it to us at ahspets@gmail.com. We also currently have several spayed/neutered rabbits available for adoption, as well as some guinea pigs in need of homes. We are also in need of even temporary foster homes that would like to give some of our current older adoptable dogs, cats, and rabbits a family life for the holidays. To foster, you need to still download and fill out prescreening application, just put “foster” or “holiday foster” where it asks “What pet do you want to adopt” and let us know if you want to foster dogs, cats, and/or rabbits. 

If you can’t adopt or foster, please do what you can to help us raise funds to care for these rescued animals. There are many ways to help financially. 

One way to help, is when you do your Holiday shopping at AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to Acadiana Humane Society Please bookmark this link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/72-1468289 and support us every time you shop. The more people that support us this way, the bigger the check from AmazonSmiles.

Another easy way to help: If you normally go grocery shopping at Albertsons, then you can help Acadiana Humane Society by using one of our Albertson’s Community Partner key ring cards when you check out. We will have some available at our Petco South adoption event. Or, you can print your own using the image below. You can also save this photo on your smartphone and have them scan it at the register when you shop.

Another easy way, is to do some of your holiday shopping through Three Geeks Studio, which is run by three of our volunteers. A portion of the money raised from the sales of their handcrafted jewelry and gifts goes to help the animals of Acadiana Humane Society.

You can also like and watch our Acadiana Humane Society Fundraiser Facebook page for when we list items for sale to help raise money for our rescue. We will be listing some items over the next few weeks as we can find the time between working on finding homes for animals, and working the various events this time of year. Many of these are brand new items that were donated for the purpose of raising money for the rescue. There will also be some collectible items, as well as some gently used items. Please read each items description to see if the item is new or not. Also, if you have any items you would like to donate for this purpose, please email us at ahspets@gmail.comwith pictures and information.

You can also donate directly to us through Paypal using the Paypal button on the side of this webpage. Or, by mailing checks, money orders, and gift cards to stores that sell pet food & supplies to Acadiana Humane Society; P.O. Drawer C; Sunset, Louisiana 70584-0536. If you prefer to donate pet food, supplies, or other item directly to us, please email us at ahspets@gmail.com to arrange a pickup. Or, you can leave items in our donation box in the lobby of Bridge Storage on Ambassador Caffery in Lafayette. We can also accept donations via Amazon by sending them to ahspets@gmail.com. If you watch our website and Facebook page to know when we are at adoption or community events, you can also donate directly to us at our adoption table at those events. If donating in person at one of our adoption events, we do have a Square Reader account and can accept donations via credit/debit cards that way.

Even if you can’t help by adopting, fostering, or donating, you can help by sharing this post on your Facebook page or other social media. Please help us get the word out to those that can help in one way or another. Thank you!

*Note: Dates, times, and locations are subject to change. Please refresh this page or check our Facebook page, our Twitter page, or our Instagram page for the latest updates to our event schedules. Thank you!

*Also, please be aware that while our office may be closed during some days, we will reply to emails and process applications as we can. We are a foster based rescue, so there is no public facility to visit. Our animals can be viewed online on our Facebook page and our Petfinder page. If you are interested in meeting one or more of our pets, please download and fill out our prescreening application and submit it to us via email or fax. Email is actually faster as we are not always in the office to check the fax machine, and sometimes the fax fails. Once an application is processed, we can make an appointment to meet, or we will arrange to bring the selected pet to our next adoption event. Our animal rescue is 100% volunteer and all of our volunteers have families and jobs outside of the rescue, so it may take a little time to hear back from us. While we try to respond to everything within one business day, we get hundreds of emails and messages daily, and sometimes it is just not possible to reply to every one right away. Email is usually the fastest way to get a response, since replies can be made late at night if need be. We believe it is important to allow our volunteers some free time to spend with their families. Thank you for understanding.
