LUXE PAWS

Why are LA’s shelters always full? 2 unaltered cats can produce 420,000 descendents in just 7 years & 2 unaltered dogs can produce up to 67,000 descendents in just 6 years? THIS is the leading cause of chronic pet overpopulation in LA & most city residents are virtually unaware of the magnitude of the deadly problem. The responsibility for saving kittens by fixing more cats lies with all of us.



We're a volunteer team, laser-focused on SAVING lives by FIXING neighborhood cats utilizing Trap/Neuter/Return or TNR in the LA neighborhood of Silver Lake, Los Feliz & Echo Park. We don’t “pull” from shelters, we rescue the most at-risk animals from the streets of LA.

Find Cats or Kittens? 

LA is home to an estimated 3 million homeless cats and just 3.9 million people. 1 female cat can have 12-16 kittens PER YEAR. Adoption alone isn't the answer, and  shouldn't the goal be fewer animals in need of a home? 

Until spay/neuter becomes a top priority for every cat, caring for homeless animals is EVERYONE’S responsibility. 

Our goal is to fix cats and PREVENT unwanted litters of kittens to control the population of free roaming cats, and decrease the number of unwanted animals entering our overcrowded city shelters. 

 

What We Do:

We’re part time volunteers dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted kittens, by donating our time to Trap/Neuter/Return or TNR.

Our volunteer trapping team utilizes the medical services provided by FixNation.org 

Where We Help: 

The Los Angeles neighborhoods of Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Virgil Village, Silver Lake/Echo Park, Chinatown, Glassel Park/Cypress Park/Eagle Rock/Highland Park, Rampart Village, and Downtown LA (Olympic Blvd. north to Main & Alameda)

What We DON'T Do:

We don’t have a facility, we rely on neighborhood fosters to care for the kitties our team rescues from the street while doing TNR. We do not re-home cats, relocate cats, or board cats. Our mission is to focus on SAVE KITTENS by fixing cats.

Spay / Neuter is our priority

IN THE LAST 5 YEARS, A WHOPPING 39,031 CATS AND KITTENS WERE KILLED IN THE LOS ANGELES SHELTERS ALONE.

THESE DEATHS ARE PREVENTABLE.  

THAT'S 39,031 PRECIOUS LIVES DYING NEEDLESSLY.

Dedicated to change.

Yes, it's kitten season. So what would it take to save 6,000 kittens? Just 50 people, trapping and fixing 10 female cats per person. Let's say you want to donate a few hours a year to help save kittens, try trap/neuter/return or TNR. If you trap and fix 10 female cats, on the low end, you'll be saving about 120 (3 litters) of kittens. That's 120 kittens who won't end up in a shelter, won't be living a very hard life on the street, and 120 kittens you won't need to find homes for. BTW, its NEVER ok to give kittens away. 


So let's say, like you, 49 other people decided they wanted to save kittens too, and each one of them trapped and fixed 10 female cats, even with our low ball of 3 litters per year of 4 kittens, that's 6,000 kittens SAVED. 
Major impact for a few hours a year donated by a few people!!!! TNR isn't easy, but we really hope a few more people out there hook up with a #trapneuterreturn or #TNR rescue effort. 


If you ❤ cats and kittens, please help prevent all these sweet little souls from ever winding up in harms way.
