The Fauna Foundation

Malibu, CA

Our Mission

The Fauna Foundation is a nonprofit private operating foundation that provides shelter, food, vet care, and love to animals in transition.  Our adoptable pets are with foster families getting loving care where we can better access their needs and behaviors.

Adoption Policy

Currently, we have many kittens and several adults available for adoption. Our adoptables may change frequently so please check back to find your perfect match.

Due to the special care we give all of our adoptable animals we will require a pre-adoption form to be filled out and submitted. The pre-adoption is merely informational , it doesn't require you to adopt NOR does it mean the animal your interested in would be the best animal for you. Once we've received the pre-adoption form we can set up a meet and greet with the animal(s) you're interested in. Normally we might require a home-check, although due to the pandemic we are willing to make other arrangements such as a facetime, video or photo virtual home check.

We do request an adoption donation. In general kittens and cats are $150-$175 and up. Dogs in general are $250 and up Other animals vary. Sometimes an animal will have a sponsor so the adoption fee might be lower. In Oct/Nov we typically will lower our senior cat adoption donation. Special needs animals have varying suggested donation amounts requested-however we might provide medication, food, special beds, etc to help get those SPECIAL animals into homes. Some of our animals have "fairy godmothers" who crochet blankets, or provide beds, toys, litter , boxes or carriers for the animal to take with them to their new home. Every animal goes to their new home with a small supply of their current food.

All of our animals are vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to adoption.

Our relationship with the animal doesn't end once they are in your home. We will be here for you to answer questions, give suggestions and offer up any assistance you might need now or in the future for the well being of your pet. You and the pet will be forever part of our family.

The Fauna Foundation is located in the hills of Malibu. Many of our adoptable kittens and cats are in foster homes, however we do have adoptable cats at the sanctuary. All visits must be pre-arranged. We aren't set up to accommodate drop in visitors.
