The Big Give moved to Sep 10

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Big Give SA has been postponed until September 10th. As SAFCC’s BIGGEST fundraiser all year, we hope you will save the date and remember SAFCC and our efforts to support community cats.

Currently our page on The Big Give website has been switched to fundraise for emergency relief efforts for our Feral Food Program. As we have received an increase in requests for food help from those who feed community cats, any donations you give now will go toward assisting these individuals.

You can still donate by clicking HERE. Thank you to all our supporters!

First bottle babies of kitten season

While worries of the recent pandemic are causing many to take shelter indoors, our volunteers are still out and about answering calls to rescue cats and kittens. These bottle babies pictured here are the first kittens accepted by our Community Cat Adoption Program and serve as a reminder that kitten season is here! There will be hundreds of kittens born this spring and our small foster/adoption program will soon be overwhelmed.

If you find a litter, please do not touch them if they are in a safe place. Watch and wait for mom to appear. Please put food and water out for mom. When weaned at 5-6 weeks, let us know if you can bring them inside to foster. Our CCAP team will try to help you get them adopted. If you cannot bring them inside, depending on circumstances, they may need to stay with mom and everyone get TNR’ed at a later date. If you are sure after several hours mom is not around, call our helpline.

SAFCC’s Community Cat Adoption Program is a small, all-volunteer organization that saves hundreds of friendly cats and kittens off the street. These efforts are done through donations only. Please consider a donation to support CCAP by clicking HERE.

If you’d like to adopt a cat, please view our adoptable cats online. Adopting one cat opens the space for a foster to take in another, and this is a perfect time to add a new family member to your home. Click our website HERE.

Lastly, consider a donation via our Amazon Wishlist.

Cats of the month: Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a 1-year-old orange and white, male tabby. The orange in his coat is a vivid and striking rust color. Pumpkin is friendly, gets along well with other cats and is an affectionate, active, lap boy. He does prefer being an indoor cat with some backyard access. If you’re interested in adopting or meeting with Pumpkin, contact his foster mom Susan at (210) 803-9334 or email her. For all of our adoptable cats, please visit our PetFinder page HERE.
