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.

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.
