Mae L. is a rock star volunteer who always steps up wherever needed. Not only does she train our volunteers to socialize our hardest to place cats, she’s also an Adoption Center counselor connecting cats and families. And when odds and ends come up, Mae is always there to help with painting projects, medical tasks, and even recently caring for special-needs cat Didi while her foster was out of town .
OAKLAND — We launched the Kitten Wire one year ago to document Cat Town’s innovative approach to rescuing older kittens — the ones who hide in their shelter cages, bolting from hands, hissing instead of purring. These are the kittens who missed out on positive human interactions in their first few months and are deemed “unadoptable” by traditional shelter standards.
