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 coloniies.

Each year, a percentage of the donations we receive is allocated for these expenses. But this year donations are down and expenses are up. Please consider donating to our Medicat Fund so that we can continue providing necessary care for the forgotten felines in our neighborhoods.



Cats of the Week

Cozy and Gizmo

Hiya. We're Cozy and Gizmo and we are 5 month old silver tabbies. We are looking for a cuddly furrever home for us both because we're brother and sister and love each other very much so we need to stay together. We've been desexed, microchipped and had all our tests and vaccinations.

We were rescued from a storage shed in Castro Valley and now we are being fostered in a home in San Ramon with other kitties.

Dogs are new to us but we wont have any trouble making friends with a gentle cat loving pooch. Gizmo is a bit shy so we'd probably adapt best to older children and adults. Also they sit still longer and we can earn our keep as lap warmers. We are healthy, frisky, funny, friendly and pretty good lookin'.

Come and see us at the Petco in San Ramon on Saturday between 11am and 3pm. You are going to love us and want to take us home, guaranteed.

We have wonderful cats looking for homes Many have lost their homes and families.
