Due to COVID, volunteer opportunities are very limited and orientations are suspended. We will update our website when we’ve reopened to the public and volunteers.
We Would Not Exist Without Our Volunteers!
Volunteers are the backbone of Acadiana Animal Aid’s success
Located on 10 beautiful acres in Carencro, LA, Acadiana Animal Aid, a no-kill animal shelter for cats and dogs, is the regional leader in animal adoption and transport. Founded in 1974, we currently have over 145 volunteers assisting us in caring for our animals seven days a week. Our dedicated volunteers and staff are fueled by passion and a desire to educate, advocate, rescue, shelter, and protect animals in our care until they all have a home.
Volunteering is easy at Acadiana Animal Aid! All it takes is a little love for our shelter pets, and a desire to give back to our homeless animal community. We have many programs where your time will impact the daily mission of Acadiana Animal Aid. Your skills and experience are invaluable, so let us know how you’d like to participate.
Help Us At The Shelter
We have many different volunteering opportunities, like the ones below.
To ensure the safety of our shelter staff and pets and to maximize our efficiency, we require that all “routine” volunteers train with an experienced handler for at least three shifts before being assigned to a regular schedule. Feel free to complete this training at your own pace, but please be willing to commit to six months of volunteering to help us utilize our resources most effectively.
