Jenelle SAYS:
Thank you for supporting Cat…
Thank you for supporting Cat Town by making a donation!!!

Volunteers, such as myself, have devoted hours of their time since 2011 to help Cat Town provide timid, sick, shy, injured, scared and senior cats live good lives with loving adopters. Your gift means that this work can continue to make a difference. But your donation does more than support our personal efforts -- it helps redefine what "adoptable" means among shelter cats in Oakland and beyond.

As you might know, Cat Town set out to save cats who are still largely considered unadoptable. These are animals who can live happily as loyal companions, but are euthanized across the nation because they "don't show well" in cages. Shy cats. Scared cats. Cats under tremendous stress and cats who are grieving the loss of their families. Cat Town helps cats feel safe and find their confidence. Cat Town was told time and time again that what they wanted to do was impossible, but, in just five years, they have helped slash the euthanasia rate from 42% to less than 7%, all while focusing on animals other rescue organizations - even "no-kill" shelters - said couldn't be saved.

I have seen Cat Town's magic firsthand. I have fostered kittens who had lost their trust of people and watched them turn into cuddle bugs. I've nursed sick cats back to health and seen their confidence bloom. I have seen shy and timid cats learn to roll onto their backs to get their tummies rubbed and senior cats find new laps to warm. I've also watched Cat Town volunteers help families find the perfect companion and guide café patrons as they played with cats over a cup of coffee, explaining that this "play time" is vital to helping shy and scared cats improve their social skills and their chances to connect with loving adopters. I know that my son and I will be going to Cat Town to find my son's new therapy cat in a setting where the right cat will find him.

Your support means that, despite the tremendous cos of saving these lives, Cat Town can keeps its doors open to continue this work. I'm so grateful for your generosity. Thank you for supporting my passion and saving lives.

In gratitude,
