Mission: Lafayette animal aid was incorporated and filed for exempt status 501(c)(3) in 1976 with sole purpose of helping to manage and care for the animal population in the lafayette parish area of louisiana.
Programs: Lafayette animal aid is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide, care, shelter and provide medical attention to stray, abandoned and unwanted animals, as well as place homeless animals in good, lovings homes through adoption events. The organization also encourages and educates the public to spay/neuter their pets through a reduced cost neutering program to prevent future pet over-population.
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"
