BENEFITING: CAT TOWN
ORGANIZER: CAT TOWN
Cat Town has helped over 1,600 shy, scared, senior and sick cats find homes, reducing the Oakland shelter's euthanasia rate from 42% to 14%. With your support, we can continue to give every shelter cat a chance!
Cat Town began as a foster-based program in 2011 for cats who had no other chance: senior cats 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 barking dogs, and scared cats who hid in the back of their cage or tried to bite anyone who came near.
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 neglected older kittens who missed their chance to get comfortable with humans), 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 one more step toward ending the needless killing of cats in our local shelter and while it's the first of its kind, we are creating a model for others to replicate in their communities.
With over 100 cats in our care on any given day, your contribution will help provide medical care to sick and injured cats 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.
