Cat's Clocking In

Working cats are available at no cost to Lafayette Parish citizens in need of all-natural pest control through the Cat's Clocking In Working Cat Program. A working cat is a domestic cat that is unsuitable for traditional adoption and instead "works" for its food, shelter and care by hunting and deterring rodents from its “employer’s” property. They are commonly employed where pest control is needed such as barns, farms, factories, warehouses, stores, and private property.

This compost is available to citizens at no cost. The composting program helps to keep Lafayette's garbage disposal rates stable; reduces waste that would otherwise go to a landfill; and best of all, citizens can pick up free compost.
