SpayMart is a private nonprofit organization that runs a no-kill shelter and foster care program. We receive no federal or state funds, and rely solely on private donations and grants. We are a registered charity with 501( c) 3 status. Established in the summer of 1998, we work to enhance the lives of animals in the Greater New Orleans area and the Gulf Coast region through programs directed at education, adoption, rescue and low cost spay/neuter.

SpayMart Goals:

REDUCE pet overpopulation in our community
PREVENT cruelty to all animals
PROMOTE respect and compassion for all animals
PROVIDE shelter and care for homeless and unwanted cats and kittens
FIND loving, forever homes for the cats and kittens in our care.

Operating on a shoestring budget, and directing all donations toward the care of animals, SpayMart contributes to the community by offering the following programs:

Spay/Neuter assistance – Provide low-cost spay/neuter to animals of indigent pet owners and homeless, feral cats. Based on a voucher system.

Kitten Foster – Volunteers foster kittens until they are ready for adoption. All kittens are sterilized, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for parasites. In 2012, the Kitten Foster program found homes for over 300 beautiful kittens!

Sanctuary adoptions  – Currently we have over 275 cats at the Sanctuary. Each cat offered for adoption is sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped.

Feral cat program – Significantly reduce the number of homeless stray cats in our community by providing affordable spay/neuter services.

Seniors for Seniors – Place senior cats with senior people so both can enjoy the rewards of lower stress, less loneliness and better health.

Felicity Charity Fund – Assist homeless or recently rescued animals suffering from life-threatening conditions that require specific and immediate veterinarian care


Note: At present the sanctuary is at capacity and cannot accept animals from the public.
