Can CC4C help me with feral, stray, or abandoned cats and kittens?
What should I do if my cat is missing?
I would like to volunteer or foster…
I need to re-home my cat—what should I do?
- Giving up part of your family should be your last resort. Before you decide to surrender your cat, consider the reason for the rehoming.
Is there a behavior issue that can be mitigated? See Behavior modification or Litter Box Behavior
- Are you transitioning between housing where a family or friend could take in your cat until you settle into a new home. Reach out to family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and community organizations that you belong to.
- Is there a medical hardship? See Medical Financial Assistance
- Is there a financial hardship that makes it difficult to buy cat food & supplies? See Pet Food Resources – Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (arflife.org)
- Is a member of the household allergic? See Allergic to Cats?
- Need kitty to become indoor-only? Consider building an enclosure or “catio”. See Enclosures
- Have you added a new pet to the household? See Introductions to Other Animals
- Since CC4C relies on volunteers to foster rescue-cats until they are adopted and does not have a shelter facility, CC4C cannot “take in” your cat.
- If you are able to continue housing the cat and it is spayed/neutered, then a member may be able to sponsor you to bring the cat to our adoption site on the weekends or provide a courtesy posting online:
East Bay SPCA surrender program
Contra Costa Humane society surrender program
