Save Community Cats in Jefferson Parish!

We’re working on a very exciting project and we could use your help! The Jefferson Parish community cats program has 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 feed and care for cats after surgery on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Volunteering just one hour a week can make a BIG difference in saving cats’ lives! Volunteer work can even be done on the way home from work!

To learn more, please see the Kennel Assistant volunteer position description for details: https://bestfriends-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/kimberlyb_bestfriends_org/EeNLxsfjxflGrQGwgV7PuxgB_v0_w3xrZCfdtDnIKosVXg?e=yspJbd

If you’d rather volunteer on a Saturday, we’re also looking for volunteers to help clean our humane traps. Are spreadsheets more your thing? Our hotline is BUSY so having someone transcribe voicemails would be a huge help!

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 in Jefferson at the Acadian Affordable Vet Clinic.

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.
