BENEFITING: Surfcat Cafe and Adoption Center
Imagine a place where the scent of fresh roasted coffee fills the air and the sound of soft purring fills your ears. Imagine a place where delicious pastries fill your plate, and a cuddly, warm, kitty fills your lap. Imagine a place where the furniture is cat friendly and the ambiance people pleasing. Imagine a place where two souls--one human, one cat--can connect, become acquainted, and maybe fall in love. This is not a dream…. this is Surfcat Café and Adoptions - Providing compassionate care and community connections for cats in need of forever homes.
Surfcat Café & Adoptions in Ventura, California, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit enterprise that will provide sanctuary for and connect adoptable shelter cats with people and potential new homes. To this end Surfcat Café & Adoptions will become, to the greater Ventura County community, a gathering place offering coffee, baked goods, and gift items. The business focus of Surfcat Café & Adoptions will be to draw people in to enjoy time with adoptable cats while relaxing in a comfortable and inviting setting. Surfcat Café & Adoptions will be working in cooperation with Ventura County Animal Services to help keep Ventura County a “no kill” community. Surfcat Café & Adoptions will be more than a cat café. Surfcat will also be dedicated to educating the community about cat care, and responsible animal stewardship. There will be story hours for children, facilities for hosting small gatherings, and our vision even includes Cat Mat Yoga, Movie Night, and an Open Mic Night for singers, songwriters, and poets!
For those who don’t know, a cat café is part cafe, part cat adoption center. Visitors can relax with a group of adoptable cats in a home-like environment that is designed to keep our resident cats content. Guests can also enjoy craft-brewed coffees and teas, and locally baked goodies. Food and beverages are prepared and served separate from the "cat room" due to Health Department regulations.
Cat cafes are great for people who love cats or want to get to know cats; it’s a “purrfect” place to be. A cat café is also a place where people who may not be able to have a cat at home can come and enjoy the company of cats. At the same time, cat cafes help get homeless cats out of shelter cages and into permanent homes while providing support for our local animal shelter.
