In the weeks since Saving Pets Challenge ended, I continued my fundraising for Cat Town by shamelessly exploiting my 60th birthday. ;-) Additional  See more

THE STORY:

Every day cats are euthanized in shelters because they are deemed unadoptable from the stress of being there. But Cat Town has proven that, with creative solutions and help from caring supporters, the fate of at-risk cats can instead be a life of giving and receiving joy. I'm proud to have joined Cat Town's effort to change the paradigm of fearful shelter cats from certain death to the chance to shine and connect with caring adopters who will love them for the rest of their lives. Please donate here and be part of this change-making movement!

Cat Town started in 2011 as a foster program for cats that were destined for euthanasia at the Oakland shelter—those that hid in the back of their cage or tried to bite anyone who came near; seniors that found themselves in a tiny kennel after the death of their caretaker; shy cats that couldn’t show their lovable selves because they were intimidated by the sound of barking dogs.    

In just six years Cat Town has helped over 1,600 cats find loving adopters and played a crucial role in reducing the euthanasia rate at the Oakland shelter from 42% to 14%. With your support of Cat Town, every shelter cat will have a chance at a joyful life!

Through innovative programs—i.e., In It for Life for senior cats, and Forgotten Kitten Project for older kittens that have had no previous socialization with humans—Cat Town has proven that many seemingly unadoptable cats in a shelter just need to feel safe.     

In a few weeks Cat Town will open a new cage-free adoption center for animals that need a quiet space to feel safe and secure. It will be the first of its kind, and one more step toward ending the needless killing of cats in our local shelter. At the same time, Cat Town is creating a replicable model for other communities.   

On any given day Cat Town has over 100 cats in its care. Your support will give crucial medical attention to sick and injured cats, provide lifesaving medication to cats with pre-existing conditions, and give all of Oakland’s adoptable cats a chance to get out of a cage and on with happy lives.   

Please help Cat Town save more at-risk shelter cats.  Visit www.cattownoakland.org for more information. Thank you!
