You've helped get Cosmo out of the shelter!
July 13, 2016

Thanks to your generous support, Cat Town has raised almost $30,000 in the first week of the Saving Pets Challenge!  More importantly, because  See more

THE STORY:

Cat Town is unlike any other rescue organization. With our mission to help shelter cats in Oakland with no options for placement, we are challenging the national norm that 40% of shelter cats are euthanized because they're "unadoptable."

After taking in more than 1,300 cats since 2011—and helping Oakland’s euthanasia rate for cats drop from 42% to under 10%—we've proved that stressed, senior, shut down, and under-socialized shelter cats do have a place. Through our innovative foster-care program and opening of the first (and only) non-profit cat café in the U.S., our strategy for saving cats struggling in shelters can impact euthanasia rates across the country. 

Founded by shelter volunteers, Cat Town was started with the understanding that a cat's response to a shelter cage can be very different from their behavior in a home. The shyest, hissiest shelter cats can be some of the most loving in a home where they feel safe. Cats who are often euthanized in shelters include seniors, cats with unknown medical needs, fearful cats stressed by shelter noise, "forgotten kittens" born to the streets who have not yet learned to trust people, cats too shut down to eat, mourning the loss of their homes—the list goes on, and these are the cats we are dedicated to save.
