Robinson’s Rescue, a Shreveport nonprofit organization that offers low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for cats and dogs, has made an extra push this week to fix feral cats.
Veterinarian Andrea Master Everson has sterilized 50 feral cats this week in an effort to bust colonies that have ballooned across the city. One feral cat she points to in a cage came from a group congregating behind Hickory Stick restaurant.
Feral cats roaming in one Shreveport neighborhood will be able to be fixed for free through a new grant program. Robinson’s Rescue, a Shreveport nonprofit organization that provides free and low-cost spay/neuter services, announced it launched a new Free Feral Cat Program made possible through a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
