LUXE PAWS

Every animal advocates goal should be fewer discarded animals, not more adoptions. If you consider California taxpayers spend more than $250 million annually to house and euthanize animals in our shelters, you’ll see why we believe the most compassionate, humane way to tackle this crisis is by reducing the number of unwanted animals utilizing spay/neuter.

A lack of focus on spay/neuter is the leading cause of chronic pet overpopulation. Even, worse, most animal advocates are virtually unaware of the magnitude of the deadly problem. The responsibility for saving lives lies with all of us.

Luxe Paws is a team of part time volunteers, laser-focused on decreasing the number of unwanted kittens by FIXING neighborhood cats. We practice Trap/Neuter/Return or “TNR” in our corner of LA known as Silver Lake, Los Feliz & Echo Park. We don’t “pull” kittens from shelters because there’s thousands on the street who may not live long enough to make it into a shelter. Every spay equals at least 12 lives saved and each little soul we rescue is 1 less homeless kitty struggling to survive on the streets of LA.

See Cats? Think Spay/Neuter! 

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.

In 2009 the city of LA was slapped with an injunction, meaning all efforts to spay/neuter instead of kill stray cats became illegal. thanks to that injunction, The city of LA cannot fix stray cats or direct any city funds to do so, but this doesn’t prevent private citizens or rescue groups from stepping up and solving a very deadly problem.

The city is fighting to overturn the injunction, but our volunteers aren’t willing to ignore such an easy and humane solution like spay/neuter and focus soley on adoptions while millions of cats are breeding out of control.

 

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 shelter facility, we rely 100% on neighborhood fosters to care for the kitties our team rescues while we’re on the street doing Trap/Neuter/Return. We don’t re-home cats, relocate cats, or board cats. Our mission is to SAVE KITTENS by fixing cats.

Think Solutions.

It’s always kitten season in la.

So how could 1 person save 120 kittens? Just donate time to fix 10 female cats.

Now, imagine if 50 people donated their time to fix 10 female cats, 6,000 kittens could be saved from ever being born on the street, or ending up in a shelter.

anyone can make Major impact by donating a few hours to spay or neuter cats.
