LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – The Lafayette Animal Shelter & Care Center (LASCC) has announced that this weekend, May 20-21, pet adoption fees will be waived, thanks to Bounty Paper Towels and Best Friends Animal Society. The two have teamed up to make an effort to save pets everywhere.
Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society, believes this promotion couldn’t have come at a better time, as May is one of the peak admission months for animal shelters, putting old and new pets at risk. Bounty says this free weekend will save two lives: the pet that comes home and the one that now has room to come to LASCC.
“The no-cost adoption events are our favorite! Not only are we cleaning out the kennels, but we’re helping our community through a tough financial time. Our large breed dogs seem to be sitting in the shelter the longest and we hope a crowd will come and meet them,” said Lynn Bourque, LASCC Adoption, Foster Care and Rescue Supervisor.
All pets at LASCC will be neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and will be available to go home the same day! The LASCC will be open on Friday May 20 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday May 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
