Saturday hours offer additional opportunity for pet adoption

Saturday hours offer additional opportunity for pet adoption

Having participated in three months’ worth of Saturday hours, there’s no denying the weekend openings at the Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter (LPAS) continue to make a difference.

Since beginning the Saturday hours program in February, the shelter has adopted out 12 dogs and cats, while signing up another 10 people for the spay/neuter program.

The next Saturday opening is scheduled for May 2 at LPAS, located at 934 Highway 3185, Thibodaux.
Residents are reminded about the new adoption fee schedule reflecting the cost of spay/neutering PRIOR to adoption of any animal. The adoption fee for any cat or kitten will be $50, which includes all age appropriate vaccines, combo test, microchip, and spay/neuter. For dogs or puppies, the fee will be $100, which includes all the same things as listed above.

To volunteer on Saturdays and find out how you can adopt a pet, call (985) 446-3532 or click on the Animal Shelter adoption link in the top rotator box at This link will bring you to an adoption application form as well as other information about the shelter.
