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.
COVID 19 and FCF Due to the current stay at home order in California our services are extremely limited right now. Although many people stuck at home are thinking this is the perfect time to adopt a cat, foster some kittens or tackle that spay/neuter project they've been putting off, rescue organizations like ourselves are facing some challenges that may make those things difficult. Please be patient with us and continue reading to see how we are being impacted.
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.

Nate and Kira are a beautiful pair of kittens, a bonded teenage brother and sister. They had a very rough time when their caretaker passed away earlier this year and they were left alone in an apartment for over a week before anyone realized they were in there! They may be a little shy at first but once they have a chance to bond with you they will be very affectionate and will love nothing more than to curl up in bed with you. They cannot be separated. Nate cries loudly for his sister when they are apart. You can meet these sweeties by appointment at the Petco in San Ramon. Contact Katy at firstname.lastname@example.org
