Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Center (LASCC) needs your help. They have been taking in more and more animals and need to get some of these sweet babies adopted.

So, now through Saturday, August 27, the shelter is waiving adoption fees as part of NBC's "Clear the Shelters" campaign.

This is the straight year that NBC and Telemundo-owned stations are partnering with affiliate stations and animal shelters and rescues to promote adoption and help raise funds to support animal welfare.

Since the program launched in 2015, Clear the Shelters has helped more than 700,000 pets find new homes.

Unfortunately, LASCC is currently at maximum capacity so LASCC Shelter Supervisor Shelley Delahoussaye is hopeful that the waived fees will help find permanent homes for cats and dogs.

All animals are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.

To visit the available animals, swing by LASCC at 410 N. Dugas Road in Lafayette. Shelter hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm and Saturdays from noon to 2:00 pm.

Before you go, you can visit to see the available pets.
