Mission: FERAL CAT FOUNDATION'S GOAL IS TO REDUCE AND IMPROVE THE LIVES OF THE FERAL CAT POPULATION, PRIMARILY IN THE EAST BAY. THE CATS ARE TESTED FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES, VACCINATED, SPAYED OR NEUTERED. HURT OR ILL CATS ARE TREATED FOR THEIR NEEDS. CATS THAT ARE TAME ARE ADOPTED BY THE PUBLIC AND FERAL CATS ARE RE-RELEASED INTO COLONIES. COLONIES ARE FED DAILY BY VOLUNTEERS.
Target demographics: homeless cats
Direct beneficiaries per year: spay/neuter over 1800 cats and found homes for more than 600.
Geographic areas served: Alameda and Contra Costa Counties
Programs: TNR (trap-neuter-return), feral colony management, adoption placement for tame cats and kittens, medical/dental and surgical care for sick or injured community cats.
With my years of being with this group and answering the phones. It is one of the best groups that come together to help the animals. A call comes in and we do everything in our power to help that animal and the client that calls about it. This is one group that goes the extra mile in helping.
In my years of affiliation with Feral Cat Foundation, I have experienced an organization of volunteers that have provided a much needed service to the communities by providing a trap, spay and neuter program for feral cat colonies and then setting up feeding programs to help keep these cats fed and healthy. We are also available to the public, via a hotline, to provide assistance for sick or injured cats and kittens.
By trapping, spaying and neutering one cat at a time, we are saving thousands of unwanted, homeless cats that would be born feral.
I've been with FCF for many years now & I have found when helping the general public with cat problems such as trapping & Spay or Neuter or trapping a sick cat or injured cat or just answering questions that they are very appreciative on the fact that we called them back & offer to help. Many if not all say, thank you for calling back & helping us. I am very surprised that other rescue groups are not more willing or helpful to the public.
