.Petco Foundation Invests in Lifesaving Work of Hobo Hotel for Cats
Grant of $10,000.00 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in Southwest Louisiana.


Lake Charles (December 28, 2016) – Hobo Hotel for Cats of Lake Charles, Louisiana, today announced it has been awarded a $10,000.00 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its spay/neuter prior to adoption program.

Hobo Hotel for Cats is a nonprofit organization serving Southwest Louisiana that is organized exclusively for the purpose of prevention of cruelty to animals through the operation of a no-kill shelter for cats and kittens. Hobo Hotel for Cats rescues , the rescue of abandoned cats and kittens and adopts them into loving homes, and provides , the adoption of cats and kittens, the development of foster homes until adoption is possible, education about pet care, and promotion of spaying and neutering., and the encouragement of relationships with pets. Since 1999, Hobo Hotel for Cats has spayed/neutered over 5,300 cats, found loving adoptive homes for over 3,132 cats and kittens, and operated a successful TNR (trap, neuter & release) program for feral cats in the community.

The Petco Foundation investment will help to enable Hobo Hotel for Cats to find more homes for stray and abandoned cats and kittens in Southwest Louisiana and prevent the overpopulation of the community by having the cats and kittens altered and vaccinated to lead healthy lives.

“This generous grant from Petco Foundation will help us prepare approximately 115 cats/kittens for adoption (which includes spay/neuter and vaccinations) and find them forever homes. This in turn helps us reduce the stray cat population in our area, eliminate the need for euthanasia in our shelters, and enable very animal to live its best life,” said Diana Andersen, Director of Operations.

About Hobo Hotel for Cats
Hobo Hotel for Cats is a multi-faceted rescue group in operation since 1999 that performs various services to aid the community in placement of animals and to reduce the overpopulation in Southwest Louisiana. We operate a no-kill shelter that houses between 50 to 70 cats year round. At our shelter, we maintain an adoption program for kittens and cats during certain hours. We house “special needs” cats that have FIV, heartworms, are blind, or have certain diets. Some of our programs consist of low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for people who cannot afford the full price of having a cat altered and a very successful TNR (trap, neuter, release) program. We also offer opportunities for the people in the community to volunteer for such activities as working adoptions, cleaning, and providing TLC for the cats.

About the Petco Foundation
At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $170 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay/neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than 5 million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit petcofoundation.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
