THE STORY:

I proudly support Cat Town, a visionary rescue organization that's reduced the euthanasia rate at Oakland's city shelter from 42% to 14%. Cat Town focuses on the at-risk shelter cats that thrive outside of the stressful shelter environment. These at-risk cats include the shy ones who hide in the back of their cage because they're overwhelmed by the din of barking dogs; senior cats who are devastated to find themselves in a tiny cage after their caretaker died; and sick cats that need extra TLC. 


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

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. Any amount helps! 


Where your money goes:


$10: Feed a cat for a week.

$25: Provide a comfy bed and toys for a cat in our foster program.

$50: Food for a month for a cat with special dietary needs.

$100: Help our cats get healthy with a vet exam and routine prescriptions. 

$250: Get a cat out of the shelter! This is the average cost for a cat in our care.

$500: Save a senior cat. Most senior cats enter the shelter with chronic or untreated medical conditions and in need of dental care. We also provide ongoing support to adopters of senior cats who can provide the love but can’t afford the veterinary bills.
 

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 by two-thirds. 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 ending the needless killing of cats in our local shelter. At the same time, we are creating a replicable model for others  to do the same in their communities.
