Cats are often overlooked victims when it comes to natural disasters and their aftermath. Alley Cat Allies has been on the ground in Louisiana assisting cat owners and community cat caregivers impacted by the recent devastating flooding. We’re helping these unsung heroes—providing expertise, resources, and much-needed support.
Yesterday, we connected with Robert and Ramona Sanders of Plaquemines Cat Action Team (PCAT) – an Alley Cat Allies’ Feral Friend in Plaquemines Parish that we founded as part of our ongoing work on the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. When disaster struck, Robert and Ramona took action to help those hardest hit by the flooding in Livingston and St. Helena parishes.
These rural areas are home to thousands of people who lost everything, so Robert and Ramona are checking in to see who needs pet food, supplies, or medicine. They are also continuing to support community cats, working with local residents to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) community cats who survived the flooding.
Alley Cat Allies will continue providing assistance to local disaster support and relief efforts, helping to save lives and care for cat flood victims.
No matter where you live, you can help the animals and people displaced by the devastating floods:
Donate at alleycat.org/Donate to help Alley Cat Allies continue to provide emergency funds to local boots on the ground activists to save as many cat flood victims as we can.
Develop a plan in case you need it by reading our disaster readiness and response advice at alleycat.org/DisasterTips.
Volunteer to foster animals from your local animal shelter, which will make room for animals being transported out of Louisiana and into shelters across the country.

Recently Ramona and Robert embarked on their first transport, to bring cats to new adoptive homes in the Northeast. They stopped for a visit to the Alley Cat Allies Headquarters. They can be seen in the photo with Alley Cat Allies Director Becky Robinson.
