In the early part of this year, we were running SMOOCH-A-POOCH Promotion to give back to our friends at the Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Center (LASCC). You might not know this, but LASCC has a new shelter and a new location and according to Timothy J. Verret, our Front Desk Clerk and Creative Marketing Rep, the shelter is "REALLY GOOD NEWS!"
The new $8.9 million facility, located at 410 Dugas Road, is 20,000 square feet, more than TWICE the size of the previous shelter (see picture to the right), and can house 70 cat kennels and 90 dog kennels.
Improvements include dog kennels with indoor/outdoor access; a dog dorm featuring a 'bark wall,' which prevents dogs from seeing each other and results in less noise and stress; a portal that separates cats' litter and food from the living space; and a community cat rooms that allow cats to spend time in a home environment. The new shelter also features an upgraded pet surgery center, an air filtration system for odor control, and an outdoor area for exercise and visitations.
Please make "REALLY GOOD NEWS!" this summer by adopting your next pet from LASCC! Please don't buy from a breeder while we have shelter animals so desperately needing a forever home! Fill out the adoption application at https://www.lafayettela.gov/lascc/adopt. Send us pictures of you and your new best friend so we can post them on our website!
We love this "REALLY GOOD NEWS!" about LASCC, and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to help them with the SMOOCH-A-POOCH Promotion. And who knows? The monetary donation we gave them earlier this year just might have made this new shelter all the more possible!
PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER TO PREVENT PET OVERPOPULATION!
PS: We continue to have the LASCC Donation Box in our lobby, so please bring in towels and blankets and anything else that would make it more comfortable for the pets at the more comfortable, more new-and-improved LASCC! 🐾💙😻💚🐶💛🐾💜
