Cammane W., a “jack of all trades” type of volunteer. She's fostered a number of cats and dedicates her time in our Adoption Center spaces, greeting the public and socializing our cats. As a trained Forgotten Kitten Project volunteer, she helps older shelter kittens build trust in humans, giving them a second chance at finding the loving homes they deserve. And on top of that, she's helping us plan our Second Chance Soirée event this fall. Like we said, she does it all!
While we never really need a reason to talk about our feline friends, World Cat Day is as great a excuse to celebrate the close to 90 million domesticated cats in the United States! Get out the catnip and let’s learn a little more about these amazing creatures with a brief history lesson on how they came to be our furry family members.
Kitten season is the busiest time of year for shelters across the country, and thanks to our community, we've been able to help more young cats find homes this summer. In July, bonded kittens like Alicia and Emma, and Garrus and Wrex were adopted from Cat Town, emptying other shelter cages for Oakland cats in need.
