FUR (Friends Underwriting Rescues) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and small foster-based program and trap-neuter-return initiative. We promote community education regarding humane treatment of animals and the importance of spay/neuter awareness in the community. With gifts of supplies and financial support gathered through fundraisers and donations, we look to our long-term goal: increasing the animals’ chances for adoption and transport to other adoption organizations.
St. Landry Parish has an obvious problem with overpopulation and abandonment.
FUR hopes to:
- increase public education about humane practices.
- encourage people to adopt pets from shelters rather than purchase them from breeders. When you adopt an animal, you give a shelter pet a home and create a space for another homeless animal.
- encourage and facilitate spay/neuter responsibility and awareness.
