Make a monthly pledge to support Acadiana’s no-kill animal shelter.
Lafayette Animal Aid’s Guardian Angel supporters are a critical part of the daily function of the shelter and the health and welfare of each special animal.
Your monthly sponsorship allows LAA to feed, shelter, and provide medical care to all LAA animals, many of whom arrive unexpectedly and with serious medical conditions.
All Guardian Angels pledging $25 or more receive a Lafayette Animal Aid Guardian Angel T-shirt as our special thank you!
Serve Breakfast! Your $25 monthly sponsorship will purchase a healthy bag of dog food every month! This will go a long way to $50 nourishing our 250 shelter pets!
Spay or neuter an intact animal! An unaltered cat can birth as many as 15 kittens each year. Your $50 monthly sponsorship will sterilize a cat or dog each month, helping to control pet overpopulation in Acadiana.
Prevent parasites! Your $100 monthly sponsorship will help provide flea and heartworm prevention to keep our animals healthy and safe.
Save a life! The majority of LAA’s rescue dogs arrive heartworm-positive. Untreated, heartworms are a fatal condition. But your $250 monthly sponsorship will save the lives of 10 dogs each year!
Thanks for being a Guardian Angel!
Be sure to include the correct mailing address and T-shirt size of the person you’d like to receive Lafayette Animal Aid’s Guardian Angel T-shirt!

A STORY OF SADNESS AND HOPE.
This is Yoda. He is a small male poodle that is between 3 to 5 years old. It is easy to see by the “before” picture what a horrible state of neglect this little guy lived in. Many people do not understand that when certain breeds are not groomed, their hair will mat into the skin causing horrible sores and pain. It is obvious that Yoda was left to live in filth, neglect and pain. He is also undernourished and anemic. Yoda is also being treated for a severe urinary tract infection that has resulted in blood in his urine. This little guy had to have his collar surgically removed because it was embedded into his neck. Lafayette Animal Aid rescued Yoda several days ago and we are working to get him on a path of recovery. Our organization works hard to promote compassion and kindness towards animals, and we hope that our community will develop a zero tolerance towards neglect and abuse.
Lafayette Animal Aid has made one of its priorities caring for sick and injured animals such as Yoda. Please support our work and help us do more by making a monthly pledge and becoming a Guardian Angel today. Please help Yoda and others like him by making a donation that will save lives.
Thank you for your kind support.
LAA Education Program
Lafayette Animal Aid’s Education Program utilizes a Therapy dog to visit second-grade students in Lafayette parish schools, community centers, YMCAs, libraries, and children’s clubs. Our service dogs are trained, captivated listeners, and their affection and attention can help children learning to read to develop more self-confidence in their reading skills and enhance their overall reading abilities. During these visits, Children read to the dog, are provided with educational material and a small stuffed animal that they can read to at home and help them develop a passion for reading and animals. Please help us keep this program going so more Acadiana children can benefit from this wonderful opportunity.
Pet Food Bank
Everyone needs a little help sometimes, our Pet Food Bank allows Pets to stay in their homes that would otherwise not be able to feed their animals and would give those animals up.
Would you like to donate to our Pet Food Bank but are unsure what to get or what we need? Don’t want to or can’t drive all the way out to the shelter to donate? You can now donate online to our Pet Food Bank and we will purchase what is needed for our existing and new Program participants. We sometimes get very specific requests for kitten or puppy food (or kitten milk) and this way we can fulfill these requests quicker. Donating online also allows us to pool donations and purchase bigger bags for individuals with multiple animals.
Thank you for your donation!
