In the first harrowing hours of the crisis, Surfcat Rescue & Adoptions (formerly Surfcat Cafe & Adoptions) was contacted by Alley Cat Allies, headquartered in Maryland.

One step forward….

Today was an emotional day. We got to say farewell to Bobble (Now Walter for his cute little “waltz”) and wish him well in his forever home. I say forever because his new mom and dad are amazing animal advocates for all creatures big and small.
