Wandering Animal's Insurance Fund

WAIF is a small, grassroots effort to help animals. We trap, spay/neuter and release feral cats, we help people get their pets spay/neutered and we help those who love their animals afford necessary medical care when the expense is too great. When we are able, we also rescue, rehab and rehome animals in need. It’s a big job for just 2 people.

But never underestimate 2 crazy ladies on a mission.

We work in a nonprofit manner (although we are not yet 501C3). Most of the money we need to accomplish what we do comes from our own pockets and from donations from caring people (like you!). We could use all the help we can get. Please consider buying one of the items we sell. 100% of the profits from items on this page goes directly to help animals. We work on a 100% volunteer basis which means that no one gets paid for what they do.

If you don't have a pet or don't see anything you want please consider donating a buck or two anyway. Even a dollar helps!

Keep checking back. We will be adding more items for sale soon!

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
