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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Your story and picture will be displayed in the front lobby.
