My Shih Tzu , Cherry have received annual exams, need appointments and surgery at this clinic. I have always been extremely grateful for the care, kindness and consistency even throughout this pandemic .The physician NickM. even took the time to do a follow up call and made sure, I was comfortable with Cherry’s care

As my kids have become more aware of the world's problems, we've chosen to work with the SPCA. We foster kittens and volunteer in the shelter and at community events. We've also done TNR. This is a way for my kids to get involved with a real problem with some clear solutions. They feel effective and appreciated for the work we do. Also, by visiting the shelter they get a taste of the scope of the animal overpopulation problem, and the real challenges the SPCA has in addressing it. It's easy to care for a few kittens as if they're your own. But to see the volume of kittens who move through the SPCA over a single kitten season is a real education.

I am a volunteer cat trapper with the Louisiana SPCA and our group of volunteers traps and transports cats to the Louisiana SPCA for spay/neuter so more cats won't be born on the streets of New Orleans. We trap about 30 cats a week all over the city. Trap Neuter and Return TNR is a lifesaver for cats. Fewer litters of kittens turned into the shelter, fewer litters of kittens getting run over in the streets or abused by mean people and less neighborhood complaints about out of control cat breeding situations. We would not be able to do this without the support of the Community Clinic of the Louisiana SPCA. Many people can't pay for spay/neuter so the SPCA has the Feral Cat Fund that covers the cost. We are so grateful for this program because spaying and neutering of cats is the only way out of pet overpopulation.

We also reunite lost pets with their owners thanks to the Louisiana SPCA. Just today we returned a cat to his owner! One of our volunteers trapped the cat which turned out to be chipped! We contacted the chip company and found the owner. The owner said the cat had been missing since April, for 5 months. Had this trapper not trapped the cat the cat would still be on the streets! Again, due to the Feral Cat Fund we were able to get the cat back home.

The trappers also foster kittens who are candidates for adoption. SPCA Clinic provides veterinary care which also is paid for by the Feral Cat Fund.

In summary, we would not be able to do what we do without the Louisiana SPCA, the Community Clinic and the Feral Cat Fund! Thank you to the LASPCA and all the people who donate to the Fund so we can continue to save cats.

Pictured - traps on my porch filled with cats, a couple of kittens that we rescued and a photo of a cat owner who was reunited with her cat today. She was in tears she was so happy to have Peter back home.

NO help in New Orleans East with TNR of over 60 colonies... Kittens everywhere, dogs in the streets and calls for help not returned. They are also way too far in distance from the area and should have an intake location in the East of New Orleans.

Although this organization runs animal control for New Orleans and is a kill shelter...they do a lot of work to prevent - as much as possible, putting down the animals. Their support of TNR for feral cats is very good and they also hold TNR workshops. There is also a feral cat caretakers group, so when an eartipped cat arrives at the shelter, colony caregivers are notified in the event it is one of their's so they may retrieve it.
