Lafayette shelter offering pets at discounted price

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. -

This Saturday, March 10 is a second chance for animals at the Lafayette Parish Animal Shelter and Care Center (LASCC) to find them forever home. LASCC’s monthly “Second Chance Saturday” adoption event will be held from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at its facility located at 613 W. Pont Des Mouton Rd. in Lafayette. The event is open to the public for anyone interested in adopting dogs, puppies, cats or kittens housed at the shelter.

Every adoptable animal from the shelter is neutered or spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested and microchipped, a value of $200-500. Regular adoption fees for dogs and puppies are $35 and $25 for cats and kittens. Adoption fees are waived altogether for military veterans with IDs and senior citizens over 65 years of age. Cash, Visa, MasterCard and Discover payments are accepted at LASCC.

Held on the second Saturday of each month, Second Chance Saturday works around people’s busy schedules and allows both the adopted animal and their new owner time to become acquainted before resuming the regular week on Monday.

For individuals interested in gifting a shelter pet, adoption gift certificates are the best option. Giving an LACC “Gift Fur-tificate” ensures that the recipient is ready to welcome their new pet and allows them to select a puppy, kitten, dog or cat of their choice. LASCC adoption gift certificates are available for purchase at the shelter and cover costs associated with regular adoption, including spaying/neutering, vaccinations and microchips.

LASCC will only be open for adoptions on March 10 and animals will not be accepted for intake on this day. Regular adoption hours are from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
