When visiting Cat Town, it’s not uncommon to hear a volunteer use the term “under-socialized” when referring to one of our adoptable cats. These cats, due to their challenging or fearful behavior in a shelter, are typically considered “unadoptable” by most rescue organizations. Part of the magic of Cat Town is that we believe in the potential of every cat and frequently get these cats out of cages and into a safe environment, where they can grow comfortable and confident enough to show their true personalities — all while waiting to find a good home.
This March is coming in like a lion — with lots of rain, and plenty of adoptions to celebrate! Didi, who came to Cat Town with wounds requiring multiple surgeries, was adopted by our very own Foster Coordinator, Dawn. Two sweet kittens with feline leukemia, Hammy and Louie, got adopted together, so they'll always have a friend nearby. And ten-year-old Tony found the perfect person to give his ears a good scratch. You can see all of our February adoptions below.
Cat Town, in partnership with Oakland Animals Services and Friends of Oakland Animal Services, has been selected as one of seven organizations across the nation to compete for a finalist spot at the 2019 Innovation Showdown. Now, we need your vote so we can pitch our lifesaving idea to a panel of investors — for a chance at $450,000 in funding!
