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
This little sweety is Cobi. She needs a quiet home with a patient person. She has blossomed some already but was semi feral when she and her kittens came to me. Her babies have gone to their homes but sweet little Cobi is looking for hers. She has the potential to be a love bug. She just needs a little encouragement. She is a gentle soul and loves attention just not having to compete with too many other cats to get it. She is easily bullied but I think she would eventually get used to a friend or two with time.
