Who We Are
Cats About Town Society (C.A.T.S.) incorporated on March 19, 1998, with a mission to rescue, protect and support cats in need in the Sacramento area and to help reduce the suffering that is caused by overpopulation.
C.A.T.S. is an all-volunteer group without any paid staff. Most of our cats and kittens are surrendered to us by people who cannot or do not want to care for them anymore. We also take in abandoned, orphaned or stray cats.
Adopting a friend
C.A.T.S. spays and neuters all animals in our system before we offer them for adoption. We have our animals tested for feline leukemia (FeLV) and vaccinated with a 4-in-1 serum (FVRCP-C). Sometimes, we do not have a cat or kitten long enough for a full course of vaccinations. In this case, the new owner can bring the cat to our adoption center where we complete the remaining vaccinations at no charge.
We also offer a health warranty for the first 10 days after adoption. If an animal becomes ill during this period, for any reason except accidents, we will provide necessary medical care through vets who work with us. With prior approval from us, new adopters can also take the animal to their own vet. In these cases, the reimbursement is limited to the amount that one of our vets would have charged.
C.A.T.S offers a lifetime return warranty on all animals adopted through us. Our adoption contract stipulates that the animal must be returned to us if the adoption does not work out. This is to prevent that the cat is abandoned or taken to an animal shelter where it may be euthanized.
Volunteers and Fosters Always Needed
We need your help staffing the weekly adoption events. As an adoption center volunteer you will talk with people interested in adopting cats and kittens, cover adoption policies and keep the cats and kittens entertained. Helping to set up and clean out the cages before and after the events would also be helpful.
We always need foster homes for the many homeless cats and kittens that are abandoned each year.
Help a cat or kitten and your community, become a Cats About Town Society foster parent. For more information email Andrea@catsabouttown.org.
Need community service time?
Why not become an adoption volunteer and knock off a few hours of that community service requirement. You can also volunteer for special events such as yard sales, car washes and adopt-a-thons. Contact us for more information at (916) 224-1117.
Come Visit Us!
We have weekly adoption events every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm at the Natomas Marketplace Petsmart located at 3641 Truxel Rd.
