The Feral Cat Foundation (FCF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people live with the feral and forgotten cats and kittens in the communities of Alameda and Contra Costa counties of northern California. We accomplish this through the nationally-recognized and effective method of "TNR" (trap-neuter-return). When possible, tame cats and kittens are adopted to loving homes. Cats that cannot be socialized are returned to the location where they were trapped and fed daily by caring volunteers. The lack of resources and a sanctuary prevent FCF from being able to take owner surrenders, rescue cats from shelters, or remove cats from neighborhoods. We invite you to read FCF's Commitment Statement and hope you enjoy your visit to our website.

URGENT-Colony Feeders Needed
We have lost several colony feeders due to health reasons and moves. If you have an hour or two to spare each week and would like to make a real difference, please check out our priority needs page.

Kitten Fosters Needed!

Kitten season is upon us and we desperately need fosters to house the kittens until they are adopted into forever homes. Foster families provide food, shelter, love and socializing. They also transport the kitties to vet appointments and adoption events. FCF pays all medical bills, provides medications, flea treatment, support and guidance. If you have room in your home and your heart, please call our hotline 925-829-9098.

If You Find Kittens

It is very important to assess the age of kittens BEFORE handling them. If you pick up a kitten that still has it's eyes closed, chances are the mother will reject the kitten. Babies this young have a very slim chance of surviving with bottle feeding. On the other hand, waiting until a kitten is 6 months old to attempt socialization is also asking for disaster. Here is a guide to age and appropriate action.

Although our main focus at FCF is TNR and colony management, many of the cats we rescue off the streets are sick or injured and require more in depth and expensive care before they can be adopted out or put back in their colonies. This year we have had leg amputations, eye removals, major dentals, several battles with ringworm and the calici virus. Surgeries and extensive medications deplete our coffers quickly. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation now to help us continue our life-saving work.

Cats of the Week


Meghan, Ivan and 2 other kittens were dumped in a yard in Oakley. Fortunately, the people that lived there were compassionate to animals and began caring for them. She wanted a better life for these poor souls than living outside but already had a full house, so reached out to us to get them fixed, and hopefully re-homed. Meghan, a cute little tabby with a round face and big eyes, is very sweet with one on one but would prefer to be the only kitty. She is about 6 months old. Ivan, a beautiful Siamese tabby mix, is playful and affectionate and does well with other cats. He is about 3 months old. This pair can be seen Saturdays at the Petco in San Ramon between 11am and 3pm or by appointment by emailing katykat37@gmail.com.
