Lowcost Spay&neuter

Posted on January 2, 2015 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (0)
Hi all-
Please spread the word regarding some AMAZING news. In honor of the 10 year Hurricane Katrina anniversary in August of 2015, LASPCA will now be offering $10 feral surgeries from January through August at our Community Clinic. Great promotions on pet surgeries and microchipping are also being offered (please see attached press release.) Help spread the word that spay/neuter is now affordable and help save the lives of New Orleans ’ animals! This promotional is good for cats caught in Orleans Parish ONLY, though we are still honoring the Jefferson Fix a Feline program as well.
Only 1 other announcement before the New Year. We have a litter of 3 semi ferals that we’d like to find a safe colony for ASAP. They are rabies vaccinated 4 month olds (2 male, 1 female) and were recently neutered in anticipation of going to a colony which didn’t end up working out. Anyone interested, please let me know, as they are available for relocation immediately to a responsible caregiver.

Summer tips for colonies/outdoor cats

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 12:20 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Summer Weather Tips - Alley Cat Allies
Alley Cat Allies' Summer Weather Tips
Warmer weather means special considerations for feral cat colony care. Here are some tips to keep your feline friends cool and eating right.
Food Tips
When feeding feral cats in the summer, bugs can certainly pose a problem. Make sure you continue to follow the 30-minute “rule” for removing uneaten food. (Some cats may be slow to arrive at their meal so you may want to wait 45 or 60 minutes.) Also, maintain clean and neat feeding locations, and keep the food dishes in one place to facilitate cleanup by using a feeding station. Read Alley Cat Allies' plans for building one.
In addition to raising the food off the ground, other ways to deter insects from the cats’ food include:
  • Surrounding the food bowl with a ring of baking soda.
  • Placing a tray or flowerpot tray with about half an inch to an inch of water in it on the feeding station platform and then placing the food bowl on the tray.
  • Cutting back, or completely cutting out, the amount of wet food that you feed, because dry food tends to attract fewer bugs. Be sure to add more dry food to compensate.
  • Elevating feeding stations slightly off the ground and surrounding them with a line offood-grade diatomaceous earthwithout chemical additives (available from some natural food stores and environmentally conscious pet-care supply companies).The diatom dust should be reapplied after rainstorms. Note that diatomaceous earth sold for swimming pool filters is not safe to use for this purpose.
  • PurchasingAlley Cat Allies’ recommended ant-proof bowls, available online.
  • Deter slugs and snails by creating a barrier around food dishes or feeding stations with copper tape. Copper tape can be found at most hardware and gardening stores, or online. It doesn’t kill slugs or snails, but its natural electric charge deters them.
  • Even if you’re not having bug problems with wet food, you could be having another issue—wet food can dry out fast in the heat. To counteract this, add water. It has the added benefit of providing extra hydration for the cats.
    Water
    This is a time of year to take the cats’ water needs seriously. Consider putting out extra sources of water during the summer months, and placing them in areas that will remain cool throughout the day. Water evaporates quickly in the summer heat, so keep bowls out of the sun. A feeding station (see above) can help provide shade. A bowl with less surface area will reduce the evaporation rate as well, so use a bowl that is narrow, but deep.
    Trapping Conditions
    If you are performing Trap-Neuter-Return during the summer months, make sure to take into account the extreme heat and how it affects the cats’ safety. It is possible for a cat to die from heat stroke when confined in a trap for too long. A simple guideline: if it is too hot outside for you, it is too hot for the cats. Make sure the cats don’t remain in their traps for long by making your neuter appointments for directly after your trapping. Also, don’t place traps on surfaces that can get extremely warm from the sun, such as asphalt. The metal trap can absorb the asphalt’s heat and burn the cats’ paws.

Dangerous product Do not buy

ALERT) Posted by Simone Jacob Lewis
Please tell everyone not to buy this product. I bought them at TJ Maxx and they fell apart into hard, plastic pieces. They lodged into all three of my dogs airways forcing me to seek emergency veterinary care. They are now on steroids and antibiotics due to the damage to their airways. I contacted the company but I don't want any other animals to get injured

bite prevention by body language

Posted on May 22, 2014 at 1:30 PM Comments comments (0)
Bite Prevention! This is not cute. This is irresponsible and dangerous. Dog use body language to communicate. They give cues using their face, ears, tail, sounds, movement, and expression. This picture is a great example of a dog that is st...ressed and very uncomfortable. The dog is displaying 4 very important behaviors that we need to be able to recognize. Can you identify the 4 behaviors?
Please share to educate others on how to keep dogs and kids safe! #dogbitepreventionweek #dogbiteprevention #preventdogbites

Bite prevention advise

Posted on May 20, 2014 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)
IMPORTANT to teach the child in your life.
One of the most valuable skills that children can learn is to stand still and "BE A TREE". Children should be taught to use these three steps if a strange dog comes near them or if a dog is becoming too frisky or bothersome. Trees are boring, BE A TREE, and the dog will sniff and go away! #dogbitepreventionweek #preventdogbites
