TNR Classes

SAFCC offers free TNR classes. These classes are open to the public and are available both on-line and in-person. Learn how you can help outdoor community cats using the ONLY method that works! By attending one class, you will learn the basics about the TNR process; how to safely and humanely manage and reduce the outdoor cat population numbers; low-cost spay/neuter options; free trap loan resources; after-surgery recovery protocols; and how to help solve cat nuisance problems.

Thank you for your generous donations!

We are so grateful to those who donated to our Community Cat Adoption Program fundraiser. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to surpass our fundraising goal of $10,000! With the onslaught of kitten season and limited clinic hours, our CCAP team has been busy saving cats and kittens off the street. When our CCAP funds are low, the ability for our team to take in additional fosters is threatened. Your donations make all the difference. If you’d like to support the fundraiser while it’s still active, please click HERE.

Get a cool sticker and support SAFCC

Stop by What’s Brewing? to grab some great coffee and a cool sticker featuring community cat Midnight. Midnight was a feral that showed up at their warehouse and who SAFCC volunteer Megan, helped trap and fix. The coffee company became smitten with the cat and named Midnight as their honorary warehouse cat. Midnight is now gone, but this cool sticker honors her memory. Stickers are $1 each and all proceeds from their sale go to SAFCC. Thanks so much to What’s Brewiing for being a friend to ferals and for supporting our work with community cats.

Cat of the month: Lucky

Meet Lucky Skywalker a sweet brown tabby who got his name because he literally fell out of the sky when he was dropped by a hawk who wanted him for dinner. A SAFCC foster took Lucky in who required surgery but is now fully recovered. Lucky is a very affectionate, playful, healthy kitten, who still has at least 7 of his 9 lives left!

Lucky has amazing tabby markings with both stripes spots, somewhat like a Bengal. Like most kittens Lucky can be very active, but he especially likes to be a lap cat. Sometimes he wants to be a shoulder cat will climb up the back of your chair to get to his favorite perch. He gets along with other cats and is familiar with his foster mom’s 2 big Labrador-cross mutts. If you are interested in Lucky, please email his foster mom Donna HERE.

The adoption fee of $85.00 includes spay, rabies & FVRCP shots, feline leukemia and FIV tests and a microchip. For all of our adoptable cats, please visit our PetFinder page HERE.
