Well now, this is awesome! The Port Lavaca Police Department in Port Lavaca, Texas realized their office was missing something … or rather, someone. To help fill the empty space, the police department decided to adopt a cat from the Calhoun County Humane Society!

The department named the ginger kitty “The Captain” and he spends his time helping the various officers with their needs. Here, The Captain is assisting on dispatch! 


The Captain also supervises the detectives’ lunch break. Hey, someone’s gotta do it! 

He also manages employees’ inboxes, to ensure they are always on top of their case load.

While The Captain really enjoys getting into mischief every once and a while, he helps bring smiles to everyone he meets. 

The police station even got him his very own uniform! 

Thanks for helping keep morale up, The Captain!

If you’re looking to add a feline to your family, please always adopt. Every year, six to eight million dogs and cats find themselves at animal shelters with 2.7 million being put down. Approximately 70 percent of the euthanized animals are cats. Heartbreakingly, many of these marked cats are healthy and able to be adopted. If you’re unable to adopt right now, consider fostering a cat. This will allow for more space at your local shelter, allowing them to save another animal in need. Learn more ways to help end pet homelessness by clicking here.
