If you or your family is looking to add a furry friend to your pack, then there is an event happening this weekend that you should probably check out.

The Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Center (LASCC) is hosting a Community Adoption Event at Cajun Harley-Davidson in Scott on Saturday, April 15th.

At this event, the LASCC is offering free dog adoptions. All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, and the adoption fee is waived.

LASCC Adoption Coordinator Lynn Bourque said some of the dogs have been cared for at the shelter for 30 or more days so she's hoping that the exposure will pique the interest of potential adopters.

"What's great about getting our animals out in the community is sometimes you'll see a different side of them when they're out of the shelter environment. They'll be sporting their "Adopt Me" vests, and hopefully, leave with a forever home," said Bourque.

The adoption event will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at Cajun Harley-Davidson, 724 I-10 South Frontage Road in Scott from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.

As a reminder, LASCC is also open on Saturdays from noon to 12:00 pm. However, the adoption fee is waived only for pets at Cajun Harley-Davidson and does not apply to animals at the shelter.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
