The Iberia Parish Rabies and Animal Control facility operates the Animal Shelter located at 2017 Seaway Access Road. The shelter is open from 8 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday for rescue release and reclaim, and is open from 1 pm to 4:00 pm. for adoptions. The Iberia Parish Rabies and Animal Control Department’s main purpose is to provide a public health program to ensure rabies vaccination and registration for all dogs and cats residing in Iberia Parish. The program includes enforcing the rabies and leash law ordinances, inclusive of animal quarantine and observation due to animal bites. The shelter also houses unwanted and stray animals picked up by animal wardens, or dropped off at the shelter by citizens. The shelter has an adoption program which consists of a variety of cats and dogs. All animals are required to be spayed/neutered and rabies vaccinated prior to adoption. Therefore, an $80 money order only is requested at the time of adoption. The $80 provides the animal with the spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, 7-in1 vaccine, bordetella and microchip.
