Opelousas, LA –  In collaboration with the Bissell Pet Foundation, St. Landry Parish Animal Control is excited to announce a Waived Fee Pet Adoption Event as part of the Empty the Shelters initiative. The event is scheduled to take place on December 2, 2023, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at Tractor Supply in Opelousas, located at 241 Acadiana Prep Circle.

The pet adoption event will be hosted at Tractor Supply in Opelousas, offering a convenient and welcoming venue for prospective pet adopters. St. Landry Parish Animal Control encourages all animal lovers in the community to come out, meet the adorable canines and felines available for adoption, and consider opening their hearts and homes to a new furry friend.
