Animal Aid for Vermilion Area

To date, Animal Aid for Vermilion Area, a non profit 501(c)3 animal rescue organization established in 1995, located in South Louisiana, has helped rescue thousands of animals.AAVA has worked through 5 natural disasters, including hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In the aftermath of Katrina, they helped unite people with their pets and saved cattle from drowning and starving.AAVA also helped pass the Pet Evacuation Bill that keeps service animals and pets from being left behind during a disaster.AAVA has been helping animals and their owners for over 25 years, and one of their goals is to rescue and rehome as many animals as possible from the local Animal Control facility, a high kill pound with no adoption program.While all pounds are always full of dogs and cats for adoption, we are facing a particular challenge: this is a high kill pound with no adoption program

Meet Christine

Sweet Christine is a 2 year old beautiful cat with a great purrsonality. She came into the shelter with her 5 kittens who were just a few days old. They are old enough now for their own homes and Christine is looking for hers. She’s great with other cats. We haven’t had her around dogs or kids but we think she would do just fine.
