In a Facebook post, workers at the facility were lamenting the fact that they were set to carry out a euthanasia list at 1:00 p.m. on Friday when the Dad walked through the doors and said "well that's not gonna happen." Isidora had been with the center since July 5th and has been brought back to the shelter twice. The euthenasia list keeps the empty kennels for pets that need.

The Dad told the workers he needed a dog that is good with the kids and dogs. Isadora knows basic commands, loves other dogs, and is great with kids.

And now, she is marked safe as she enjoys her time with her new family!

If you are looking for an animal, consider the Lafayette Animal Shelter & Care Center. All animals are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped.

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
