Robinson's Rescue receives grant to control feral cats in Shreveport


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.

The program will allow residents of the Highland neighborhood of Shreveport to bring free-roaming cats to Robinson’s Rescue to get spayed or neutered for free. The goal of the grant is to reduce the number of these cats in zip code 71104.

Robinson’s Rescue said in a news release that it has performed more than 21,000 spay/neuter surgeries since it opened five years ago.
