Community Cats
Ear tipped community cats

We’re working on a very exciting project and we could use your help! The Jefferson Parish community cats program is in the middle of a three-year plan to provide spay/neuter for 7500 cats.

This lifesaving endeavor will involve trapping, neutering, vaccinating and returning community cats to their original outdoor locations. Not only is this the most humane method of preventing cats from entering the shelter system, but it’s also the most effective.

To carry out this huge community effort, we’re going to need a few helpful hands like yours to help the program in a variety of ways. Volunteer work is very flexible and training is provided.

If you’re interested in volunteering to help the cats, or if you have any questions, please email us at bfvolcoord@bestfriends.org. Our office is located in the West Bank Animal Shelter at 2701 LaPalco Blvd in Harvey, LA but we also have cats and office hours in Jefferson!

The Jefferson Parish community cats program is a partnership between Best Friends Animal Society and Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter. We can’t wait to hear from you, as we work together to save the lives of community cats.
