Ashton is a part of our Field Feline Program.  AAVA is looking to place healthy cats that aren’t suitable as pets in environments where they can flourish, working alongside humans to control rat and mice populations. These cats can be placed successfully outside of homes, in barns, and other businesses looking for inexpensive and effective rodent control. Our experience has shown that cats are more successful and effective when placed in pairs or groups, so multiple-cat adoptions are encouraged, but not required. These cats will be spayed/neutered and up to date on rabies vaccine. A $20 donation per cat is required to help keep the program running. Adopting a “Field Feline” for this purpose offers these cats a second chance at life. These “Field Felines” reside at Vermilion Parish Rabies Animal Control. Because they aren’t adoptable, this is their only way out. Homing a “Field Feline helps the shelter avoid euthanasia, and helps provide a better life to cats that wouldn’t otherwise be candidates for adoption. Cats who fit this description are often most successful when adopted in groups of two or three. Adopters must agree to provide: A warm, safe shelter like a barn or shop to keep the cat protected from the elements Food and clean water every day Future medical care if needed A way to keep the cats contained for 2 weeks to acclimate to new surroundings (an acclimation kennel can be provided for you) Upon approval a volunteer will come to your property to assess the shelter and or to set up an acclimation kennel for you.

May update: Biggie was nervous again when we had him out this past volunteer day. Due to the number of dogs in the shelter, some dogs go months before they make it back into rotation for play dates. That is the case with Biggie. We hadn't seen him in nearly 2 months. Unfortunately large black male dogs are the least wanted dogs, so they get bumped for the more appealing dogs when we are only allowed to see so many dogs per weekend. Biggie needs an adopter or foster to take a chance on him so we can see that true personality shine through. We have seen glimpses so we know its there! March update: After several weeks in the shelter, Biggie is finally starting to show us his amazing personality. He stays close to his handler for assurance, but he is not nearly as scared as he once was. He is dog friendly but not interested in playing just yet. He greeted the other dog and then walked away. Biggie came to the shelter absolutely petrified with Pretty Girl. He is still very frightened, but we were able to coax him out of his kennel to walk to the play yard. He stayed close to his handler and did not seem interested in meeting other dogs. He was non-reactive around other dogs, but preferred being with his handler. Treats are his best friend, and if you give him treats, he will warm up to you. We’d love to see Biggie fostered or adopted so that we can learn more about his personality! Biggie is currently a resident at Vermilion Parish Animal Control. He will be vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped upon placement in an adoptive or foster home.  To adopt, complete the adoption application at AAVArescue.com.   show less
