Who we are


Lafayette Animal Aid is a Cat and Dog rescue and adoption organization, based in Carencro, just outside of Lafayette, Louisiana. On any given day, we care for more than 100 dogs and 120 cats at our shelter, and more in our network of foster families. All are looking for permanent homes. Our cats and dogs come to us as strays, as owner surrenders, as rescues from negligent situations or from euthanizing shelters. We’re an ‘all-breed’ rescue group and don’t discriminate against any animal due to size, age, breed, color or background. Our cats and dogs stay with us - and receive a safe and caring haven and all necessary veterinary care - until a permanent home is found for them. Our intakes are dependent on available space at our shelter or in our foster homes.

We were founded in 1974 and are a chartered 501(C)3 non-profit humane society. Our organization is funded by donations, fundraisers and adoption fees and is governed by a Board of Directors.

What we do

Our mission is simple

  • To place homeless animals in loving homes through our adoption process

  • To educated and encourage the community to spay and neuter their pets, thereby reducing the number of unwanted animals.

  • To Promote "Kindness to Animals" education in our local schools.

  • To prevent cruelty to animals and ultimately reduce the number of euthanized cats and dogs in Lafayette

"....until they all have a home"
