Lafayette is trying to open a no-kill animal shelter.

In January Mayor-President Joel Robideaux said he wanted to implement changes at Lafayette Animal Control to lower kill rates and increase adoptions, but the process could take years.

“It’s probably about a four-year window to get us to no-kill status,” said Robideaux.

Robideaux said in order to build a new shelter we have to first limit the amount of animals that are being euthanized.

Owner of camp bow wow Suzette Fowler fosters animals until they find homes. “I think a no-kill shelter is extremely progressive and overdue for Lafayette,” said Fowler, “everyone deserves a chance, even the little four-legged creatures.”

Robideaux said in the first year or two they hope to make significant strides to get the number of euthanized animals to zero.
