AAVA is looking to place healthy cats that aren’t suitable as pets in environments where they can flourish, working alongside humans to control rat and mice populations. These cats can be placed successfully outside of homes, in barns, and other businesses looking for inexpensive and effective rodent control. Our experience has shown that cats are more successful and effective when placed in pairs or groups, so multiple-cat adoptions are encouraged, but not required. These cats will be spayed/neutered and up to date on rabies vaccine. A $20 donation per cat is required to help keep the program running.
Adopting a “Field Feline” for this purpose offers these cats a second chance at life. These “Field Felines” reside at Vermilion Parish Rabies Animal Control. Because they aren’t adoptable, this is their only way out. Homing a “Field Feline helps the shelter avoid euthanasia, and helps provide a better life to cats that wouldn’t otherwise be candidates for adoption.
Cats who fit this description are often most successful when adopted in groups of two or three. Adopters must agree to provide:
Upon approval a volunteer will come to your property to assess the shelter and or to set up an acclimation kennel for you.
