SAFCC's BIGGEST fundraiser all year, we hope you will save the date and remember SAFCC and our efforts to support community cats.
Currently our page on The Big Give website has been switched to fundraise for emergency relief efforts for our Feral Food Program. As we have received an increase in requests for food help from those who feed community cats, any donations you give now will go toward assisting these individuals.

Thank you to all who gave food donations
We know our SAFCC supporters are the best, but even we were surprised with the enthusiastic response to our request for help with cat food donations. As quarantine measures seem to be here for some time, the need for cat food donations for those colony caretakers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic will be felt for some time and we appreciate your help in bolstering our Feral Food Program funds.
At the food drop off event held the past two Saturdays, several hundred pounds of cat food was donated by our supporters. Those in need were able to come by and pick up a bag or two to tide their colony over. If you need food for your colonies, please let us know!
Lastly, many have donated directly via our
and we have received more than 20 deliveries of food items with many more to come!
We love how our community comes together to support community cats in times of need. Thank you for being the best!
First bottle babies of kitten season
While worries of the recent pandemic are causing many to take shelter indoors, our volunteers are still out and about answering calls to rescue cats and kittens. These bottle babies pictured here are the first kittens accepted by our Community Cat Adoption Program and serve as a reminder that kitten season is here! There will be hundreds of kittens born this spring and our small foster/adoption program will soon be overwhelmed.
If you find a litter, please do not touch them if they are in a safe place. Watch and wait for mom to appear. Please put food and water out for mom. When weaned at 5-6 weeks, let us know if you can bring them inside to foster. Our CCAP team will try to help you get them adopted. If you cannot bring them inside, depending on circumstances, they may need to stay with mom and everyone get TNR'ed at a later date. If you are sure after several hours mom is not around, call our helpline.
SAFCC's Community Cat Adoption Program is a small, all-volunteer organization that saves hundreds of friendly cats and kittens off the street. These efforts are done through donations only. Please consider a donation to support CCAP by clicking HERE.
If you'd like to adopt a cat, please view our adoptable cats online. Adopting one cat opens the space for a foster to take in another, and this is a perfect time to add a new family member to your home. Click our website HERE.
Thank you to everyone and please stay safe!
