Peanut was pulled from the Vermilion Parish Rabies Animal Control on August 6th and was placed in boarding because we did not have a foster home for him.  That is where he was when the flood waters came.  He almost drowned. Peanut had to be rescued by wading in chest deep water.  When they got there you could only see his snout and he was clinging to the gate of the kennel to save himself.

He was placed into a temporary foster home where we discovered he didn't get along with the the female dog in the house.  So once the water went down, he was brought him right back to the cell where he almost drowned. We cannot imagine how he must feel.

Peanut has a great personality and does well with male dogs.  We feel once he is able to be neutered, he will be a fantastic pet.

About Animal Aid for Vermilion Area

About Our Rescue Group...

To date, Animal Aid for Vermilion Area, a non profit 501(c)3 animal rescue organization located in South Louisiana, has helped rescue thousands of animals.

We have worked through 5 natural disasters, including hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In the aftermath of Katrina, we helped unite people with their pets and saved cattle from drowning and starving.

We also helped pass the Pet Evacuation Bill that keeps service animals and pets from being left behind during a disaster.

We have been helping animals and their owners for over 25 years, and one of our goals is to rescue and rehome as many animals as we can from the local Animal Control facility, a high kill pound with no adoption program.
