The New Orleans, LA area is home to many outside, community, feral, and semi-feral cats. We hope to raise awareness about Trap Neuter Return (TNR) in which feral and outside cats are fixed and returned to their communities under managed caretakers and are "ear-tipped" to show they were fixed through a spay neuter program.

This group, the New Orleans Area Feral and Outside Cats Meetup Group, seeks to increase networking among individuals who are interested in helping feral and outside cats in this area. As the number of feral and outside neighborhood cats continues to increase, and this year after good efforts for TNR there are still many new kittens being born. Local shelters cannot handle the influx of new arrivals. The importance of spay neuter to reduce the numbers of new kittens born outside requires active participation within this community.

To this end, the goal is to empower people to learn to do TNR in their neighborhoods, to put people together to assist others who need help with trapping and fixing cats who cannot do it themselves due to health issues or who are elderly, to discuss issues or questions involving feral and outside cats, and to assist with rescue or fostering of street-rescued kittens and adoptable stray cats through networking and foster home care.

Through e-mails, outreach, and organizing you can learn about outdoor and feral cat colony care, Trap Neuter Return, to train others and help set up workshops, or organize together to do TNR projects. There are always requests for assistance that need volunteers to do the trapping and take cats to the vet under free or low cost programs and re-release. In addition, there is always a need for fosters and bottle feeders for kittens born outside that can be socialized and placed for adoptions.

As a member of this group you will also receive updates on currently available low cost spay neuter programs and information from the local rescue community on current activities and cat-related issues. We also seek to support the efforts of high-volume TNR trappers who dedicate their services to the community as volunteers.

We are also seeking people who would like to sponsor TNR trappers for costs for additional vet services for TNR'd cats and rescued kittens, low cost spay neuter in Parishes where program is not free, foster kittens and cats, and post and network to help others. In addition we are always looking for people with backyards and porches who can accommodate 2 or 3 outside semi-feral or feral cats that need to be relocated as a last resort who are in danger at their current spot or have been turned in to the shelters.

This Meetup group will provide an opportunity for you to network with other like-minded individuals in the New Orleans area community!

Thank you for considering joining our group! Welcome!
