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.

News & Activities

COVID 19 and FCF
Due to the continued Covid19 threat in California our services are extremely limited right now. The veterinarians we work with are still severely limiting services and appointments. Although we have opened up a few of our adoption locations and are once again able to do some trapping, rescue organizations like ourselves are facing some challenges that may make those things difficult. One of those challenges is just how many stray cats and kittens need rescuing. Because we were unable to do much last year, the population of unwanted cats and kittens has exploded. We have taken in a record numbere of these forgotten felines. Some of our fosters are housing 2 to 3 times the usual number. Please be patient with us and continue reading to see how we are being impacted.And, as always, remember Spay/Donate/Foster/Adopt. We can't do it alone!

Volunteers And Veterinarians Needed

It's been a rough couple years. Due to the pandemic and just the passage of time, we have lost long time members, volunteers, fosters and partnr veterinarians. These losses mean we are doing far less spays and neuters than we would like and are able to help far fewer callers and homeless kitties. We are in desperate need of the following:

  • New Members-members pay a small membership fee each year and in return get access to medications, reimbursement for veterinary expenses related to TNR and adoptabe cats and kittens, access to adoption venues and support from our board of directors
  • Veterinarian Partner for ordering vaccines and medications-as a non-profit rescue, we keep our costs down by ordering vaccines and medications at wholesale but need a vet office to have them deliverd to. We are currently in need of a new partner office for this.
  • Veterinarias offering rescue discouonts for spay/neuter-with the proper resources, we can spay/neuter a couple thousand stray and feral cats each year. I*n return for discounted services, we refer ouor adopters and hotkine callers to our partner vets for continues pet care. A win/win!
  • Volunteers-we need vollunteers to answer our hotline, foster adoptable cats and kittens, and hep with TNR projects

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.
