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!
Many people aren’t aware of Cat Town’s extensive foster network. There are a variety of reasons why a cat may be in a foster home; they might be recovering from an illness or surgery, they could be a cat who may not do well in our public Cat Zone space, or they could simply be decompressing from being in the shelter while they wait to be adopted.
Angeline Y. has been a rockstar foster since 2017. She chooses to focus on senior cats and cats with medical needs who may be passed over for younger, healthier cats. I talked with Angeline about her experience fostering for Cat Town and why she hopes others will consider opening their hearts to cats with special needs.
