Cenla Cat Project Cat rescue in Pineville, LA

Who do we serve?

The Cenla Cat Project (CCP) serves the central Louisiana region (Cenla) residents and homeless felines.

Why are we needed?

There are several humane societies in the Cenla area, but none of them emphasize the feline population. We will work with the homeless feline population, as well as cats that are owned and unaltered. These unaltered feline perpetuate the exponential growth of the feline population. Residents complain about free roaming cats. The government response is to trap and kill these homeless cats.

An organization is needed for the following reasons:
*To educate people about the importance of sterilization of the cats and help them to realize that Trap Neuter Release (TNR) of feral colonies can be an asset (ie. rodent control, etc.) to the community.
*To place socialized cats into homes through adoption.
*To place feral felines as “barn” cats in rural / industrial areas or with the cooperation of the human community return to community colonies.
*To assist people in having felines altered and feline maintenance.
*To educate young people in the care of felines and the importance of sterilization.

What is our mission?

CCP's mission is to be part of the solution of feline overpopulation and homelessness in Cenla. Our goal is to reduce the feline overpopulation and homelessness in central Louisiana by rescuing homeless felines and providing sterilization, medical care and adoption services. It is also our goal to serve the residents of Cenla by providing humane education about feline care and encouraging the sterilization of their homed felines.

What are our programs?

Programs include feline adoption, education on care and importance of population control, working with communities / neighborhoods to setup TNR programs.

Who do we work with?

*Local veterinarians and low cost sterilization clinics
*Volunteer fosters
*Local Future Farmers of America and 4-H members
*Local governmental animal shelter

What resources do we need?

*Veterinary partners to alter, administer rabies and assist with providing health care to sick and injured cats
*Volunteers to foster, transport cats to Veterinary appointments, assist/run adoption events
*Support of the community with donations of money, food, cleaning supplies, etc.
*Local news media to promote the mission of CCP
*Social Media

What do we want to accomplish?

*Reduce the number of homeless cats and shelter cats without the use of euthanasia, through sterilization and adoption placement.
*Create a cat adoption center where a community member may come to interact with cats and adopt.
*Assist the community with low cost sterilization of their cats.
*Encourage and assist the community members to responsibly re-home unwanted cats and kittens rather than releasing them to the outdoors.
