Who We Are

Cenla Alliance for Animals (CAFA) is a program of Central Louisiana that focuses on improving animal welfare through Spay Cenla, education, public awareness, and local partnerships.


What You Do Not Know

It costs approximately $100 to impound, hold & destroy an animal on a community shelter.  

Why Support CAFA? 

CAFA is a non-profit organization governed by a board of volunteers. Memberships and donations support the volunteer based nonprofit organization.  Due to the location and size of our community, our increasing financial need is limited with grant funding; therefore, we rely solely on private donations.  One hundred percent of every dollar goes directly toward the animals in our community.  CAFA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and our tax ID number is 72-1008673 . Donations can be made via PayPal and by mail to PO Box 8641, Alexandria, LA, 71306.

What We Do

Each year, our community disposes of thousands of healthy, adoptable cats and dogs due to pet overpopulation. CAFA partners with local vet clinics to provide financial assistance to low-income families for spay/neuter surgeries and rabies vaccinations, which directly impacts our local animal community by reducing euthanasia and preventing the spread of preventable diseases.

In 2012, CAFA assisted with more than 750 spay/neuters in our community.  To date, CAFA has exceeded 800 and we are still working to provide spay/neuters.  With your help, we hope to reach our Spay Cenla 2014 goal of assisting more than 1,200 low-income pet owners with spay/neuter surgeries and rabies vaccinations.

As an animal alliance, CAFA’s goal is to be a community resource of information pertaining to animal welfare, adoption, rescue, and spay/neuter.  The residents of Central Louisiana can find direct links to local animal rescue and adoption programs on our website.  CAFA promotes reducing pet overpopulation through our spay/neuter program and facilitates adoptions through our links to local no-kill shelter adoption programs.
