The Lafayette Animal Shelter & Care Center (LASCC) is the municipal animal shelter serving the two and 4-legged residents of Lafayette Parish. Our mission is to find, protect, and serve the citizens and animals of Lafayette Parish through community engagement and innovative methods to obtain harmony between the two. After introduction of the No-Kill 2020 initiative in 2016, LASCC has successfully increased adoptions, implemented a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program for cats, increased rescues, and decreased euthanasia rates. The shelter has increased its save rate of 52.88 percent in 2016 to a successful No- Kill status save rate of 90.3 percent in 2020. Community support as well as partnerships with nonprofit organizations such as Wildcat Foundation/SpayNation and Acadiana Animal Aid have been instrumental in obtaining and maintaining a No-Kill status.
