Update on clinic closure

Trappers, please note the following clinic closure date and plan accordingly:

We urgently need your help!

This year we have had record calls and intakes to help homeless cats and kittens! Averaging 520 fosters in our program, we have had a significant increase in veterinary and emergency care expenses for everything from toxoplasmosis, calicivirus, panleukopenia, coccidia, and upper respiratory infections. So far this year we have spent $24,000 treating illnesses and injuries (not including spay/neuter costs) compared to this time last year when we had spent $10,000.

We desperately need your help to continue caring for these precious babies! Please donate today and if you can’t donate please share to your friends!


Intake Closed

This year we have had record calls and intakes to help homeless cats and kittens. We are now averaging 520 fosters in our program, and unfortunately we are now having to close our intake. If you need help, please call our helpline at 210-877-9067 and they will be able to give you a list of resources. 


Thanks for donating to our Amazon Wish list

Thanks so much to the generous individual that donated the pictured cat food item to our Feral Food Program list. Our Feral Food Program is a small resource we manage through donations only, but as the number of calls for help come in, this program too is often stretched thin. In fact, for the first time this year, we had to cap the number of participants we could help.

SAFCC works with established partners to get more cat food donated but beyond this effort, our ability to help is determined by our available supply and monetary donation status. Please consider a donation now and help us help those that care for community cats! If you’d like to donate cat food (or a gift card) please consider a donation HERE. If you’d like to make a monetary donation to our program, please do so HERE. Thank you!


Cat of the month: Speedy

Speedy

Speedy’s journey has been nothing short of miraculous. Speedy was an outdoor cat and not friendly when she suffered a rectal prolapse. After being caught by SAFCC volunteer Kay, and undergoing multiple surgeries to treat Speedy’s prolapse, it was discovered that Speedy had several deformities in her digestive tract. When Speedy prolapsed again, her odds were poor. It was decided the only way to save her was to have a resection and anastamosis operation, along with redoing a colopexy.

Thankfully, Speedy is now a healthy six-month-old and ready for adoption. She lost much of her kittenhood to medical treatments and is still learning how to play. She’s friendly with other cats but is still learning to trust human touch and kindness, as she’s associated it so long with discomfort. Seeing her sweet personality come through in spite of all her hardships has been incredibly rewarding. She loves kneading and nuzzling her fuzzy blankets, she enjoys being pet all over but especially enjoys face and ear pets. She also has an incredible purr engine on her and a great appetite! She should not require special care beyond patience, but she does love good quality wet food and will sing and prance for it until you put it down for her. If you’d like to enquire about adopting Speedy, please email us at adoptions@sanantonioferalcats.org.
