Alley Cat Allies Workshops

February – June 2009
Feral cats are outdoor cats that are healthy but unsocialized to humans and therefore unadoptable as pets. Our workshops provide information on how to stop the cycle of breeding with Trap-Neuter-Return—the only recognized humane and effective method of stabilizing feral cat populations. The workshops provide information on building inexpensive shelters and a short video presentation gives a step-by-step guide for how to help cats. Learn how to humanely trap outdoor cats and how to safely deter cats from where they are not wanted. Join us to network and meet others who are helping cats.

Cat Help Desk

Spring 2007
Alley Cat Allies worked with a group of volunteers to create and establish the Cat Help Desk. Our experiences and expertise went made up the training manual used to educate volunteers answering inquires. The Cat Help Desk serves five parishes (counties) in the Greater New Orleans area, covering 28,000 square miles. Cat Help Desk volunteers are trained to ask the questions necessary to define the problem and then do what it takes to achieve resolution. Caseworkers have been able to successfully resolve 70 percent of the cases within two weeks through interventions ranging from referrals to local low-cost spay/neuter services to intensive hands-on trapping.
