The City of Natchitoches and Natchitoches Humane Society would like invite the public to attend a dedication ceremony of the newly constructed feline facility located at the Natchitoches Animal Shelter located at 450 Fairgrounds Road, on Wednesday, July 17 at 10 a.m.

The structure will be dedicated to Bobbye Lee and Dr. Brenda Woodard for their years of service, support, and love for the animals in the Natchitoches community.

The feline facility is located at the Natchitoches Animal Shelter and has provided a space which includes an enclosed space separate from the dog area for the cats to walk around, play, climb, and lounge with a safe access to the outdoor area.

For more information on the ceremony, please contact the Mayor’s office at (318) 352-2772.


  1. I like seeing this happen! Don’t Know who’s paying for it,but rather see it spent on fur babies and not tourist. I like animals more then most people! Good job to whoever!!

    • They are not. The ancient Egyptians worshiped them. They are beautiful, like all God’s creatures.

  2. On what are you basing your allegations that the city will kill an animal less than an hour after it ‘s been brought in? It sounds like you are talking about a specific event that happened to you personally. I’m sorry you went through that.

    This article doesn’t do a good job of telling what the cat facility’s policies will be. But I expect this new facility will have the same operating procedures as the regular animal shelter. As far as I can tell, this new building is to help with the severe overcrowding at the shelter we’ve been using for decades.

    One step forward for cats in Natchitoches! Trap, Neuter and Return is the next step!

  3. That’s nice and all, but it’s not like they’d use it. You’d think you could bring a lost animal there for safe keeping until the owner is found, but not with these people. If an animal is hot and scared because it’s outside for the first time, it definitely won’t let you touch him. If an animal is 100% trusting and allows ANY one to touch them, their lives may be spared. Otherwise, the City Shelter will kill them, even after being told that this animal seems like an inside cat and that its owner will probably come looking for him, and that he allowed someone to pick him up and put him in a carrier. It was someone’s pet that they didn’t even give an hour to settle down and cool off. I hope they felt like monsters when they had to tell the owners that they euthanized their pet in less than an hour from which he was found and brought to the shelter for safe keeping.
