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.
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.

done with her loving. She likes to talk-hence her name. She gets

children and adults.
