ARFLA is a small group of concerned individuals who provide veterinary care and housing for abandoned or unwanted animals in Lafayette Parish and the surrounding area. Space in our shelter facility is limited. We work to rescue these animals, obtaining necessary veterinary care and placing them in loving, responsible homes. We DO NOT euthanize adoptable animals. Over the last few years we have placed more than 1200 dogs and cats into loving homes. ARF-LA exists on donations from generous people who believe in our mission and give to us financially and otherwise so that we may continue.
All animals in our care are current on vaccinations. Dogs are screened for heartworm and other diseases and put on heartworm prevention. .
The animals we place are already neutered. ALL ANIMALS WE PLACE MUST BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED.
We are recognized by the IRS as a non-profit, charitable organization, so any donation you make to help our cause is tax deductible.
We are in great need of Foster Homes and Volunteers. In addition to the daily needs of the animals we need extra hands for adoption days, transportation to/from vet visits, and fundraisers. Please consider being a foster home to an abandoned animal. If you are interested in any of these rewarding opportunities, please call 337-332-4756. We will call you back!
