Surrender A Pet




Acadiana Animal Aid has limited space for owned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies and stray animals. Because of the high demand for space, there may be a waiting period before an animal can be accepted into our shelter. Please note, Acadiana Animal Aid accepts pets if we have space and by appointment only.

If you would like to surrender a found or owned animal please email a recent picture of the animal to:

Please include the following information in the email:

• Why are you surrendering this pet?

• What is the estimated age of pet?

• For dogs only:

            • Date of test?

            • Result of test?

      • Does he/she get along well with other dogs?
