Adopting a FriendEach cat receives a health check, is tested for FeLV/FIV (Leukemia and HIV), double vaccinated, and is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. As a preventative measure, our kitties also receive flea treatment and are dewormed.
A tax-deductible donation is required from each would-be adopter, which ensures the safety and welfare of the next abandoned cat or kitten in need.
Our adoption process includes filling out an application, an interview with a volunteer and a contract. All applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors to ensure that our kitties end up in homes that are perfect for them to live in forever.
Remember, donations come in many shapes and forms:
Volunteers are welcome and needed. Inquire within your own heart.
History/BackgroundLegend has it that back in 1931, movie magnate Jack Warner had a temperamental star on his hands. During the filming of "Public Enemy Number One," James Cagney found his favorite wool cap chewed up by rats that had inhabited his dressing room. Cagney fumed to Warner: "Everyone in the world knows the best exterminator of rats is the cat! You ain't seeing me back here 'til I hear some meowing!" The same day, Warner paid a visit to the local animal shelter and returned to the studio with a limousine full of cats. Warner placed a tin can in his office - called the 'kitty kitty' - to collect donations for the new studio "employees." Today, most of Tinseltown's original stars have made their farewell performances, but the descendents of Warner's studio cats still roam the sets. In 1984, a group of studio employees on the Warner Brothers/Columbia Pictures lots decided something had to be done for the growing number of homeless cats in their workplace. The result was Cats at the Studios (Cats, Inc.), a non-profit group whose caregivers have picked up where Warner left off. All the cats have since been spayed/neutered and have their vaccines, medical needs, food and love provided. In return the cats provide a soothing, relaxing and rodent free workplace!
The few founding members of CATS, INC. who have ran this organization all these decades, have found homes for many of the tame cats on the lots and care for the existing cats on the back-lots of Warner Brothers Studios every day. These heros still continue to rescue from the city, county and private shelters and find homes for abandoned cats and kittens and hold weekend adoptions at various locations.
REMEMBER, A PET IS A LIFETIME COMMITMENT!
