Happy Endings


Our dogs

They really are man’s best friend and we have many, many looking for a loving, caring permanent home. Some or our dogs have had a rough start in life, some have been abandoned or neglected, some have been abused. Some have known the comforts of a home and love of a family and are now missing their former life. We believe every dog deserves a home and strive to find every one of the many dogs in our care a home and a loving family to call their own.

 

 

You can see some of our dogs by clicking HERE, and you can meet them in person (or in canine) at our shelter in Carencro (just outside of Lafayette) by appointment during the week or on weekends, this way we can ensure we have time to dedicate to you and your family.


 

Our Philosophy

We seek to make the best possible match between you and your new companion, to ensure a lifelong commitment. We do our best to match the animal's needs and temperament with the adopter's lifestyle. We reserve the right to deny adoptions. Our priorities are the health, safety and future well-being of the animals in our care and the health, safety and expectations of people who visit us with hopes of finding a pet who will match their interests, lifestyle and existing companion animal(s). We do require a fenced-in yard for our dogs, unless you live in an apartment complex.


Our adoption process

starts with an adoption questionnaire (you can complete it online below) which will help us to learn more about you and the type of dog you’re looking for, so that we can best match you with your ideal pet.

 

 

Our Fees

All of our Puppies and Dogs are spayed or neutered and up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations. They’ve been tested for Heartworms and treated if necessary. And they’ve received excellent veterinary attention while in our care. Adoption fees are $150 for each dog or puppy.
