BS you can't be a nonprofit and try to charge for an animal that is not in your care, to start with they lie about there animals, I adopted JANE a blue pitbull terrier, she is allergic to some dog foods and I know they will not tell the new owner which means she will develop a rash again. I will never get another animal from here, and I will NEVER tell someone to get their future pet from this greedy "supposed" animal rescue. I got my baby from them everything was all cookies and cake. A few months down the road I decided to join the Navy, contacted them like they're contract stated asked if I could find my baby a new home. They agreed to let me all I had to do was email them my intentions, which I did. After emailing them I the find out they intended to change another adoption fee for my baby, to which I replied I was going to ask a fee but NEVER FORGET INTENDED to take just wanted to make sure my baby went to a good home. With all this I returned my baby to this place agents my better judgement, I walked away crying my eyes out. The only reason they got a star from me is cause I had to so I could write this review.

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.
