Thank you to our donors for contributing to the saving pets challenge!

From July 5 through August 4, Cat Town will be part of the Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge, a nationwide fundraising competition for rescue organizations. The organization that raises the most money will be awarded an extra $50,000. This would be a game changer for Cat Town, but the only way we could ever get there is with your help! 

Every donation, regardless of size, contributes to our life-saving mission. Please give what you can to help deserving, adoptable cats find relief from shelter stress and put their best paws forward to potential adopters in the uplifting environment of Cat Town Café & Adoption Center.


Cat Town, Oakland Animal Services and Heart of the Town Events are delighted to host the inaugural "Meow at the Moon", a frolicking, cat-themed festival supporting cats in need of loving homes.

Our festive fundraiser will feature a cat-themed costume contest, cat video showcase, music and dancing, and a “cat-tastic” photo booth in addition to Oakland beer, wine, food, and more “purr-tastic” fun!

This people-only event welcomes guests to dress as (or in the spirit of) cats and party the night away under the moonlight in Frank Ogawa Plaza. We invite animal lovers, Oakland boosters, night owls and other fun-seekers looking to toast The Town!

A 501c3 nonprofit, Cat Town has a unique partnership with the city’s shelter, Oakland Animal Services. Together, they have found “fur-ever” homes for 1,400 hard-to-place cats and reduced the shelter’s euthanasia rate by 32%. Event proceeds will help care for many at-risk cats.

Join the fun on Saturday, September 17!
