UPDATE:  May 2024

Our intake capacity is very limited to receive surrendered cats at this time. We are making every effort to add more foster homes and volunteers.

The requirement to accept a cat into our care: 

* Must have our approval 

* Complete and submit the Surrender Form

If you have a cat-related vet emergency, please contact BAY AREA PET HOSPITAL for assistance. 

Our area has other rescue groups

We don’t know whether these groups are taking animals or not and offer them as possible sources of help.
