Our Mission

Animal Aid for Vermilion Area is not your ordinary rescue who picks which animals to rescue from animal shelters. We have the unique task of networking and saving animals from the Vermilion Parish Rabies Animal Control facility in Kaplan, LA. We are the only rescue allowed to pull from the facility so all rescues and adoptions are screened and approved by our organization. We are theses animals only shot of getting that second chance! But we cannot do it alone. We can only put so many animals into our foster program so we count on adopters and other rescues to help save the lives of the abandoned and wanted animals of Vermilion parish.
