What Should I Do If I Can No Longer Care for My Cat?
Because we are overwhelmed by rescuing cats that are on the streets and at great risk, we do not accept surrenders (cats that currently belong to someone).
We strongly urge you to re-home the animal yourself – networking with your friends, family, and community is the best way for you to find a safe home for your cat. Effective strategies include:
Posting flyers in your neighborhood (sample flyer here)
Asking friends, family, colleagues, and community members if they know someone looking for a cat.
Try the website Rehome, which is sponsored by Adopt-a-Pet and the Petco Foundation.
If you find a potential adopter, we strongly advise:
Charging a small re-homing fee
Checking vet and/or personal references
If you have absolutely no other options, you must bring your pet to your county’s animal control shelter. Please do this only as a last resort, as animals turned in to these facilities may be euthanized (put to sleep, killed).
