Welcome to River Cities Humane Society for Cats!


Thanks for visiting the River Cities Humane Society for Cats website.  All of our cats are spayed or neutered before adoption, litter box trained, socialized, tested for Feline Aids/Leukemia and up to date on routine vaccinations.  River Cities cats are "indoor" only cats.  We have made this a policy because we feel strongly that indoor cats live longer and more healthy lives than outdoor cats

Please remember that requests to surrender cats must be called in to the Shelter at 318-343-3031. They cannot be handled through e-mail.

Barn Cats available at River Cities Humane Society for Cats

Most cats can slip easily into the roll of being an inside house pet, but sometimes River Cities Humane Society for Cats will have a cat that can not adapt to inside life, usually because the animal was an outside cat before they were surrendered.  We call these special felines our “Barn Cats”.  These cats are spayed or neutered, checked for feline aids and leukemia, had their age appropriate vaccinations and are looking for outside homes.  These outside homes could be a farm, a horse stable, a warehouse, a barn or out building, or other suitable outdoor location.
