Our Mission at WFAHS is to provide a safe, healthy, and caring environment for the animals under our care as we search for their original owners or a caring adoptive home. Our mission is also to help reduce the pet population in our parish.
Our animal shelter was founded in August 2012. A community member and animal lover, James "Bo" Bryant left a legacy when he donated the funds to begin the construction of our shelter. Before 2012, animal control was operated with a few holding kennels behind the parish jail. Now, we are able to operate a full-time animal shelter thanks to Mr. Bryant's generosity and love of animals. Our parish has moved from saving less than 10% of the parish's stray population, to now saving more than 95% of the stray population per year!
Are you ready for the best adoption event this year at WFAHS?
If you are thinking about adding a new four-legged family member, now is the time to adopt!
Our nation’s animal shelters are facing an overcrowding crisis. The devastating increase in owner surrenders and stray intakes has left tens of thousands of socialized, trained pets waiting in shelters for a second chance. These adorable pets, many of which have previously lived in family homes, are ready to be loved by YOU!
The cat or dog of your dreams is waiting for you, and we are making it easy! From Oct 1-15, #BissellPetFoundation and Cathy Bissell is sponsoring reduced adoption fees at 330+ participating organizations in 42 states. Dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens of all breeds, personalities, and ages are waiting to meet you.
At WFAHS for $50/animal that has been at the shelter for 1 year or less and only $25/animal that has been with us for over 1 year.
