Our vision is to have a community where no kittens are born wild on the street, no cat  capable of living in a home is lacking one, and no feral cats are wanting for food, water,  and appropriate care and concern.
Happy New Year from the 
San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition!

Thank you for a very successful year! With your help and support, we were able to help many more cats lead better lives. Here's to a productive 2017 where new friends will be made and we will continue our life-saving work.

With gratitude and best wishes,

The SAFCC Board of Directors 
 


Annual SAFCC Christmas fundraiser a success

Thank you to all that showed up to our Annual Christmas Fundraiser Bazaar. We had a great crowd and all enjoyed shopping, snacking and socializing. We love this opportunity to talk to all of those volunteers and supporters that make our work possible. 

We raised $1,489 for our Community Cat Adoption Program. Rescue is a part of any TNR group and our CCAP team frequently pulls friendly strays and kittens off the street. Last year, our adoption program placed over 249 cats and kittens for adoption. We're sure these funds will help us increase that number next year.   
Support us every Third Thursday at California Pizza Kitchen 

Join us on January 19 for a great meal while fundraising for the San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition. Present this FLYER when you dine in or take-out and 20% of your bill will be donated to SAFCC. 

With two convenient locations, which one is closer to you?  California Pizza Kitchen (Huebner Oaks) or California Pizza Kitchen (Quarry)

This fundraiser occurs every Third Thursday at both California Pizza Kitchen locations. Enjoy a healthy meal while helping our community cats stay healthy!
Shop for cool tee-shirts and support SAFCC 

SAFCC is now a designated rescue supported by 5 By Design, a tee-shirt design company. Their goal is to save and improve the lives of abandoned animals. After helping in shelters around the world, the owners felt the need to do something to help financially and 5 By Design was born! The tee-shirt design company donates the net profits of every tee-shirt purchase to the animal rescue you select. If you're an animal lover who wants to wear something that will look good, feel good and do good - check out the website and, when making your purchase, be sure to designate SAFCC as the animal rescue. Thank you! Join 
Tails of Success
 
Martha, a SAFCC volunteer, has been helping and trapping throughout her Southcross and New Braunfels area for years, one family at a time. Martha identified a dumping area at a small trailer park with over a dozen 3-4 month-old kittens plus some adult cats and took on the task of a mass trapping. 

Within two days, Martha got 12 cats. The weather turn cold and the remaining cats disappeared seeking shelter. In order to not mix up the recently fixed cats with those still needing to be trapped and fixed, Martha kept the first 12 feral cats in her home for a week so she could trap the others.

Overall Martha caught and recovered 23 cats from the trailer park-a clean sweep! Sandy, another SAFCC volunteer used our cat van to deliver traps and transport all the cats to and from the spay/neuter clinic. The three Siamese-looking kittens pictured here-were fostered and socialized within one week! They ended up at the San Antonio Humane Society for adoption.

The feral and stray cat population will never dwindle unless people like Martha step up and take responsibility for cats in their local area. Thanks to Martha, the number of kittens in this trailer park will be greatly reduced and all the cats have been fixed and vaccinated!
