Review for ANIMAL AID FOR VERMILION AREA INC , Abbeville, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Animal Aid for Vermillion Area (AAVA) a 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization that saves dogs and cats from the gas chamber in the high-kill shelter in Kaplan, Louisiana that offers no adoption program to the public. Pets who are brought may be killed within 4 days in an gas chamber where it takes 45 minutes or longer for the dogs to die. AAVA has rescued over 1,600 dogs and 500 cats from the shelter, sending them to other animal rescues, foster homes, adopting them to the public and maintaining the remainder themselves -- covering all vetting and transportation charges. They work very hard to promote the animals and find families for them and they've gained the trust and respect of the shelter in Kaplan, which makes an effort to work with AAVA. We are a foster home to one of the dogs AAVA saved. AAVA desperately needs more support from the community to continue doing the amazing work they've been doing.
