THE STORY:

CAT TOWN wrote -

Starting  as a foster-based program in 2011, when the euthanasia rate for cats at  the Oakland shelter was 42%, we focused solely on cats who had no other chance: cats who hid in the back of their cage or tried to bite anyone who came near; seniors who were devastated to find themselves in a tiny cage after their caretaker died; shy cats who were plenty lovable, but  too scared to show it when surrounded by the sound of barking dogs.   

In the six years we have been operating, we’ve helped over 1,600 cats and helped reduce the euthanasia rate at the Oakland shelter to 14%.  With your support, we can give every shelter cat a chance!     

Through innovative programs, like opening the first (and only non-profit) cat café in the  United States, our In It for Life Program (for senior cats), and Forgotten Kitten Project  (for older kittens who had no human contact during the time they are easy to socialize), we have proven that many cats who seem unadoptable in a shelter just need to be in an environment where they feel safe.  

We are weeks away  from opening a new cage-free adoption center for cats who need an engaging but quiet space to feel safe. It’s the first of its kind, and one more step toward finding homes for all of Oakland's cats. At the same time, we are creating a replicable model for others  to do the same in their communities.

With over 100 cats in our care on any given day, your contribution will give needed medical care 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 their lives.
 

Please help Cat Town save more at-risk shelter cats.
