• Dogs seriously calm you down in high-stress situations.
• Your pooch could be your cure for loneliness.

• They increase our social connections.
• They give us a self-esteem kick.

An adopted dog can be all these things -- and so much more!

“Lafayette Animal Control” or a “Local Rescue Group” is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality -- all waiting for a loving home. Or, if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.


If you have adopted, we would love to hear from you. You can submit your adoption success story to Your story and picture will be displayed in the front lobby.
