The Feral Cat Foundation (FCF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people live with the feral and forgotten cats and kittens in the communities of Alameda and Contra Costa counties of northern California. We accomplish this through the nationally-recognized and effective method of "TNR" (trap-neuter-return). When possible, tame cats and kittens are adopted to loving homes. Cats that cannot be socialized are returned to the location where they were trapped and fed daily by caring volunteers. The lack of resources and a sanctuary prevent FCF from being able to take owner surrenders, rescue cats from shelters, or remove cats from neighborhoods. We invite you to read FCF's Commitment Statement and hope you enjoy your visit to our website.

URGENT-Colony Feeders Needed
We have lost several colony feeders due to health reasons and moves. If you have an hour or two to spare each week and would like to make a real difference, please check out our priority needs page.

Kitten Fosters Needed!

Kitten season is upon us and we desperately need fosters to house the kittens until they are adopted into forever homes. Foster families provide food, shelter, love and socializing. They also transport the kitties to vet appointments and adoption events. FCF pays all medical bills, provides medications, flea treatment, support and guidance. If you have room in your home and your heart, please call our hotline 925-829-9098.

If You Find Kittens

It is very important to assess the age of kittens BEFORE handling them. If you pick up a kitten that still has it's eyes closed, chances are the mother will reject the kitten. Babies this young have a very slim chance of surviving with bottle feeding. On the other hand, waiting until a kitten is 6 months old to attempt socialization is also asking for disaster. Here is a guide to age and appropriate action.

Stormy and Nix

Kitten season is winding down but we still have several adolescents like Stormy (above) and Nix (below) just waiting for a home like yours! Check out our schedule to find the adoption site closest to you.
Stormy is a sleek, beautiful and sweet 4 month old grey short haired male. He was rescued from a storm drain as a baby, hence his name, and has been fostered with other cats/kittens and dogs. He loves to play and will make a great companion. He is showing at our Livermore Petco adoption site.
Nix is a handsome 4 month old black and white boy with striking markings. He was rescued along with 5 siblings from under a maintenance shed of a local high school. It has taken him a bit of time to fully come out of his shell but he is now playful, enjoys petting and talks in a sweet little voice. He is showing at our San Ramon adoption site.

We have wonderful cats looking for homes Many have lost their homes and families.
