Alley Cat Allies Responds to Extreme Flooding Affecting Louisiana

With your support, Alley Cat Allies was one of the first organizations in the nation to provide expertise to local disaster support and relief efforts after Baton Rouge and much of southern Louisiana was left devastated by recent extreme flooding.

Thousands of people, animals, and local shelters and rescues continue to be at risk, as 20 parishes have been declared major disaster areas by the federal government.


Helping Animals Displaced by the Flooding

Alley Cat Allies dispatched a team to Louisiana to support rescue efforts on the ground. The team was deployed to the Livingston Parish Animal Shelter, and visited animal shelters across the region to see what is most needed and offer assistance. Read more about the work at Livingston Parish Animal Shelter.

Rescue Efforts Continue for Stranded Cats

The Alley Cat Allies team in Louisiana is meeting with grassroots organizations to see what can be done to assist them. They are also helping cat owners and community cat caregivers in accounting for cat colonies, locating surviving cats, and ensuring they have food and shelter. View photos of their efforts.

Providing Care to Surviving Cats

Alley Cat Allies continues to offer on-the-ground assistance to make sure that cats aren’t overlooked victims of the devastating flooding. We met with Plaquemines Cat Action Team (PCAT)—an Alley Cat Allies’ Feral Friend that is currently working to Trap-Neuter-Return surviving community cats. View photos of their efforts.

While in Louisiana, our team visited the Care and Treatment of Neglected & Indigent Pets (CATNIP) Foundation at Big Sky Ranch—an Alley Cat Allies’ Feral Friend in Folsom, LA.

CATNIP Foundation is helping take in cats abandoned in the flooding, including a group of community cats rescued from the Denham Springs Animal Shelter, which is in need of rebuilding and repairs once the flood waters recede.
