Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter partners with National Relocation Program; 51 Cats Transported from Shelter in Two Days
The Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter (TPAS) announced yesterday via social media that it has partnered with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Relocation Program, which transports animals from shelters in areas of high homeless pet overpopulation, known as source shelters (such as TPAS), to destination shelters—where there is a higher demand for adoptable animals.
Fifty-one cats were transported from the shelter in the last two days.
“That’s right! Our team works non-stop to find every avenue to help animals and we couldn’t be more thankful to the ASPCA team for our new partnership,” reads a Facebook post by TPAS.
The post also notes animals in destination shelters and rescues are typically adopted within a few days.
Monday morning, ASPCA drivers picked up 30 cats from the facility to be transported to Indiana.
Twenty-one felines from the shelter departed for Pennsylvania this morning.
