About Our Shelter:Mission Statement
The John Cotton Memorial Animal Shelterĺs mission is to provide compassionate short and medium term care to lost pets and adoptable stray animals. Our three main principles are:
1.The City of Louisiana is pet friendly, every lost companion animal that comes under it's care deserves to be reunited with its family.
2.Every stray or abandoned companion animal that comes under it's care deserves a decent, honest chance at being adopted into a loving family or placed with a state licensed rescue organization, or other regional partner for the purpose placement in an owner home.
3.JCMAS is a 'Near Zero' Kill shelter. As long as public donations cover daily operating expenses, euthanasia will be a last resort used only when an animal is not adoptable for reasons of public safety, or has an incredibly severe injury and is suffering.
