Due to health issues, our Director has been and is currently unavailable to take phone calls, and our office is temporarily closed until further notice. We are still able to check email at least once a day, so please submit all applications and any questions via email. We are still holding adoptions to pre-approved applicants by appointment. Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you do call us and leave a voice mail, your name, reason for call, and phone number will be texted to Louellen, one of our volunteers, and she is making call backs for us. However, this can sometimes be a slow process, so if you are able to email us and ask your questions that way, you may get a faster response as we can respond to emails at any time of the day. If you are looking to adopt, some of our adoptable pets can be viewed on our Petfinder page. Our prescreening application is a WORD document which can be downloaded from our website, or you may pick one up at Petco in Lafayette. The fastest way to get your application processed is to be sure and answer every question, and send in your completed form by attaching the saved or photographed file to us via email at ahspets@gmail.com

Acadiana Humane Society is currently full and we do not have room for new cats or dogs. If you adopted any animal from us and can no longer care for them, then we will make room for returned cats, rabbits, and other small animals. If dogs are being returned, we will do our best to get them back into their original foster homes, but if the foster can’t help then we will do our best to rehome them as quickly as possible. The only animals that we are currently taking in are returned adopted pets, as well as small exotic animals such as rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, birds, etc.

We are currently out of canned cat food, and very low on cat litter. We have over 100 rescued cats in our care, so we go through a lot of dry cat food, canned cat food, and cat litter. We also have quite a few dogs in our care, as well as several rabbits, and some guinea pigs. Donations of pet food, especially any canned cat food, Purina Pro Plan dry cat food, any cat litter, dry and canned dog food, rabbit pellets, guinea pig food, and pet treats and supplies are always needed. We always have a couple of donation boxes in the lobby of Bridge Storage at 2510 Ambassador Caffery in Lafayette where you can drop off any pet food or pet supply donations whenever they are open. We currently also have the use of the donation bin inside of Petco South which is located at 605 Settler’s Trace Blvd. in Lafayette. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!

March 31 Day of Giving

Acadiana Humane Society has two programs to help people in Acadiana who are in need of help to be able to keep their pets. We have a program to help pay for spaying or neutering of owned cats and dogs for those that are low income and could not otherwise have them altered. When we have funding available, we will pay the vet bill directly to Spay Nation of Lafayette for cats or dogs to be spayed or neutered and receive a rabies vaccine, on those that have filled out our form and been approved for this program. We will also sometimes help with the cost of TNR of feral or community cats when funds are available. We have a Pet Food Bank which will temporarily provide cat or dog food, and sometimes pet supplies, to those who may have recently lost a job or are currently on a fixed income. When area business’ and individuals or families donate pet food and supplies specifically for this program, then this helps us to help these families in need. On March 31st we are focusing our fundraising goals on replenishing funds for these programs. If you would like to make a donation to help us help others spay or neuter and vaccinate their pets, as well as feed their pets, please consider donating to Acadiana Humane Society on March 31st. We have a Paypal button on the side of this webpage. You can also send us a check or money order, with the words “Day of Giving” on the memo area, to our mailing address at P.O Drawer C; Sunset, LA 70584-0536. Please help us help our local community. Thank you!
