I am currently the Board President of Lafayette Animal Aid and could not be more proud of the direction that we are growing in. We have the ability, the potential and the obligation to make a chance in regards to animal welfare in our community and we will certainly do so. Our save numbers have jumped from 385 in 2013, to 605 in 2014, and we are currently at 700 lives saved this year. We are very open to our community and also like to give back to our community by partnering with other organizations that are focused on inspiring a healthy community for Acadiana through compassion for animals. We are tackling the overpopulation problem through a multi-faceted approach that is going to actually get to the root of the problem. We have been around for 40 years and will be here "Until they all have a home"

For thirty years I have been associated with non-profits and I am very thankful that my experience led me to this outstanding organization. I feel extremely fortunate to be connected with an organization where literally everyone is passionate about what they do for the general welfare of domesticated animals. Lafayette Animal Aid is an organization that cares for it's cats and dogs on all levels. They receive the very best of medical care, nutrition, exercise, play, social interaction and human love. At this wonderful organization each and every animal has an amazing opportunity to heal and begin its journey to find a forever home. Lafayette Animal Aid adopts its animals to loving homes in its local community and out-of-state. Their adoption process insures that every animal is adopted into homes that are perfect for the needs of that animal. Lafayette Animal Aid is a "no-kill" animal shelter that has served its community well for over three decades. Everyone and anyone is invited to visit this amazing shelter - I promise you will leave with a huge smile on your face. H. Paterson

Don't bother. They refuse to adopt ANY dog to ANYONE living below the Mason Dixon line. They don't serve the poeple or the pets of the area (Lafayette). The staff says they are no kill, but if its a dog that they think will be there for a while, they refuse it. "give it the pink needle" even when its a dog they adopted out! They would rather have flat screen tv's for the paid staff to sit around then actually put the money to the animals. There are many worthy organizations in the area...go with one of them.
