Protect stray animals this winter!

Statistics show that there are about 70 million stray animals living in the U.S. Of those, only about 6-8 million cats and dogs make it into a shelter. 


Stray cats and dogs are a big problem in NELA, and with the cold temperatures, it&rsquos more important than ever to protect these homeless animals. We&rsquove put together a list of 4 ways you can help the homeless pets in NELA this winter. 


  1. Report

If you see a feral cat or stray dog, the first thing you should do is contact your local rescue organization so they can take proper action to provide a safe and secure shelter for them. 


  1. Bang on the hood of your car

It doesn&rsquot get too chilly in NELA, but on any especially cold morning, cats may seek the warmth of your car. Banging on the hood of your car before starting it will allow for any cat or kitten hiding from the cold a chance to move to a safe location. 


  1. Provide shelter

If you have a stray cat living near your home that you cannot catch, you can still help them! Make them a shelter using an insulated box and warm blankets. This only takes a few minutes and will help ensure any homeless kitties have a safe place to cuddle up when it gets cold. 


  1. Food and water

If you notice a stray animal in your area, it is a kind gesture to provide food and water while the authorities take action to rescue the animal. Stopping by daily to refill a water and food dish could mean life or death for the animal and will provide peace of mind to you as well!
