Cat AdopTion Service

Cat AdopTion Service is a no-kill, volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and permanent placement of homeless cats and kittens into responsible, loving homes. Our goal is to significantly and positively affect the homeless cat population in the San Diego area by finding homes for domestic cats and kittens. All of our cats are spayed/neutered before adoption. Whenever possible we also trap/spay/release any feral mother of kittens that we take in.

2015 Year Wrap Up from Cat AdopTion Service

Lynwood

Hello dear supporters, and happy 2016 from all of us at San Diego Cat AdopTion Service (CATS)! 

It is hard to believe another year has passed. 2015 was a very productive year for CATS. All in all we took in 620 cats and found permanent, loving homes for 550 cats. Making the difference in the lives of that many wonderful animals takes a huge amount of time, care, and resources. As a supporter, your donation helped make it possible! We rely largely on monetary donations from supporters like you to make up our budget each year; your donation pays for food, litter, medical supplies, vaccines, vet care, and perhaps most importantly- spay/neuter surgeries. No one in our organization is paid- we rely soley on our huge team of amazing and dedicated volunteers! Whether they foster kittens or cats, work at our in-store adoption facilities, or participate in trap/neuter/release activities, all of our volunteers do what they do because they love cats and want to end the suffering of countless abandoned animals. We know you care about cats the same way, which is why you give. You can also contribute by talking to your neighbors, friends, and coworkers about spaying/neutering their pets! A world with no homeless animals is possible if everyone is responsible for "fixing" their pets, so please share what you know! 

One of the many precious lives we saved this year is Lynwood, a very sweet kitty who was dumped in an alley by his owners and started approaching strangers, begging for help. As a young and friendly kitten, he had no "street smarts," and surely would not have survived for long. However a compassionate stranger called CATS and we were able to send volunteers to rescue Lynwood. He is now vetted, and healing from a few scratches in a loving foster home. Soon he will find a forever family and start a new and wonderful life. 

Thank you again for making 2015 a successful year at San Diego Cat AdopTion Service! We appreciate your support and hope you will continue to consider us and the homeless cats of San Diego County in the new year!

Everyday Heros

Wendy

Hello Wonderful Supporters,

Today I want to tell you a simple story about what we do everyday and how anyone can change a life! 

Wendy, the beautiful tabby, got her name from the place she was found- you got it, a Wendy's parking lot! Cat Adoption Service got a call about her from a woman who noticed her several times when she visited Wendy's on her way home from work. One of our volunteers set up a trap and after several days, we finally caught her. However, something was different- she looked much skinnier. The volunteer surmised that she might have been pregnant and had given birth. After a search of the bushes around the restaurant, the precious and healthy newborn litter was found! We took the whole family into rescue, where they are now thriving in a foster home! 

Mother cat Wendy is partially feral from a life on the street, so she will need a special home. Her kittens, however, are people-loving and will be up for adoption soon! 

If you've seen a cat you think may be stray, find out more about it and call a rescue! And remember, spay and neuter your pets and spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership. Together, we can make a world where no animal is homeless!

Kittens Galore!

Mother Tararyen

Summer is a busy kitten season which means rescue groups have to work double time to save as many lives as possible. It can feel overwhelming at times, but the stories of happy endings make it all worth it for us at Cat AdopTion Service! This beautiful family was pulled from a filthy, high-kill shelter in LA several months ago. The shelter is over-crowded and under-staffed and this family had untreated upper respiratory infections. Sadly, one of the babies was so sick with pneumonia that he died a few days after transport, and a second kitten, Stark, was critically ill and hospitalized. Our foster mom, Elizabeth, took excellent care of the family and eagerly awaited good news on baby Stark. It was up and down with his recovery for weeks. Finally, after a long hospital stay and excellent vet care, Stark was able to return to his mom and adorable brother. Fortunately, thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, his other siblings Dorthraki and Lanister have already been adopted. Tararyen, (the stunning Siamese mother), Stark, and his brother Baratheon are all looking for loving homes. Many of our rescue cats have sad beginnings, but thankfully with the help of our dedicated network of volunteers and fosters, we are able to give them happy endings. 

Please help spread awareness about the plight of stray animals and the importance of spay/neuter. And encourage everyone you know who is interested in a companion animal to adopt!

Thank you for all your support!
