The Feral Cat Consortium (FCC) was founded by Joanie Diwi and Wendy Guidry in 2004. Heartbroken by the plight of free-roaming cats living in and around Madisonville, Louisiana, FCC’s primary function became managing an active TNR (trap-neuter-release) and feeding program in St. Tammany Parish that resulted in hundreds of cats living safer and healthier lives. The program continues to this day, and has expanded to surrounding communities in southeast Louisiana.
In addition to TNR, FCC provides medical care and rehabilitation for cats (and the occasional lucky dog) who have been abandoned or stranded outdoors. Volunteer foster caregivers provide comfortable homes for animals in the program. Over time, many of them find permanent indoor homes through adoption.
FCC doesn’t have a storefront or facility, but operates in the homes of its volunteers. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, FCC is funded by donations, grants, and gifts of service and supplies.
Feral Cat Consortium eliminates the suffering and breeding of free-roaming cats in southeastern Louisiana by humanely trapping, neutering, and returning them to their outdoor homes. Sick and injured animals are given care and placed in new indoor homes as appropriate.
– To eliminate euthanasia as a means of animal control for free-roaming cats within the community.
– To educate the community about the importance of spay/neuter to the health and safety of free-roaming cats.
– To engage volunteers within the community to support the organization’s mission.
