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 Odin, a gentle soul with a heart of gold. While he may be a bit shy and uncertain in the shelter environment, Odin's true character shines through when he's around other dogs, displaying a natural affinity for companionship. This sweet pup finds solace in the comforting presence of volunteers, and his eyes light up with gratitude when he receives their love and attention. Odin and his siblings are now long term residents, having spent well over 100 days in the shelter. They are growing up in the shelter and it breaks our hearts. Please share them and let’s get them seen and saved!LONG TERM RESIDENT: This animal has been in Vermilion Parish Rabies Animal Control for over 100 days.
