Funding and Support for Our Programs

We have no paid staff and no office - we rely on donations, community support and volunteers. Your donations directly support our Fostering Programs, "Meow Town" at Jefferson Feed, Pet & Garden Center, the Shelter Dog Socialization Program, and office supplies to support our programs. Donations help pay for food, medication, health screening tests, spay/neuter fees, toys, and instructional materials.

There are several ways that you can help us:

You may send donations directly to Friends of the Jefferson Animal Shelter
You may donate through JustGive
Adopt-a-Cage - Adopt a cage at our offsite adoption center, Meow Town Cat Adoption Center at Jefferson Feed, Pet & Garden Center. A $100 donation to the Adopt-a-Cage Program sponsors a cage for one year. Your name will be placed on the cage as sponsor, and if you'd like an inscription (such as in memory of Fluffy), let us know. The adopt-a-cage program provides funds for the cats at Meow Town Cat Adoption Center. These funds are used for food, litter, toys, beds, and any medical care needed. Donations should be marked "Adopt-a-Cage" and mailed to Friends of the Jefferson Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 1079, Metairie, LA 70004-1709. Send us an e-mail along with your donation and we will send you a photo each month of the cat residing in "your" cage.
Sponsor a Pet - Each pet's webpage has a "Sponsor Me" link to make a donation through the Petfinder Foundation. Donations are processed through Petfinder and forwarded to our organization.
