Our Mission, Vision, & Guiding Principles

Our Mission & Vision

Acadiana Animal Aid is dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted, stray and neglected companion animals with a focus on those most at risk of euthanasia at our local municipal shelter, in addition to 22 other municipal shelters throughout the state. Overall, our biggest goal is to help achieve No Kill by the year 2020 here in Lafayette Parish.

We work daily to accomplish our vision in saving the lives of companion animals until they all have a home.

Guiding Principles

Acadiana Animal Aid is the largest local animal welfare organization in the area that is leading the way in inspiring a healthy community through compassion for animals.

We strive to not only rescue and find homes for these companion animals, but, also, to be an integral part of inspiring our community through education, volunteer, foster, transport and adoption programs. As a partner to the Pet Food Pantry, we strongly believe in serving as a resource for our community, which includes providing opportunities for them to be responsible, loving pet owners that have access to affordable care and nutrition.
