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.

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.
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.

Each year Feral Cat Foundation gets calls to rescue hundreds of kittens off the streets of Contra Costa and Alameda counties. These kittens are found on the side of the road, in bushes, behind woodpiles, under decks, in tool sheds. Many of them are orphaned at just weeks old when their mothers get hit by cars or killed by coyotes. We need your help to save as many of these babies as possible.
Cats of the Week
This gorgeous maine coon mix is a BIG sweetie pie. He will turn 1 in April so is still technically a kitten. He is loving and playful and would do well with kids or dogs. You can meet him at the Petco in San Ramon Saturdays 11am-3pm.
