Fostering Saves Lives……

They say that when the weather cools down kitten season should slowly come to an end. That may be true in some areas but certainly not in Southern California. As kittens stream into our local shelter daily the adult cats languish in small cages in hopes of finding a home. I am fortunate to live in a community where our shelter does not kill purrfectly impurrfect cats for space. Unfortunately cats and cages are like fire and gasoline.
So what do we do as a community to help these forgotten cats?
Fostering Saves Lives.
It’s life changing for both kitty and foster parents alike.
This is Theo at Surfcat Intake and then a week before going to his forever home. Theo was in medical foster to heal from a leg amputation.
He was people and cage aggressive. It took about two months to recover him.

This is the difference a foster home can make. Look for our “Where are they now?” page featuring the journeys of
less adoptable cats from Shelter to Home coming soon!

Theo has been rescued!

Theo was hit by a car, brought to the shelter and was saved by the amazing veterinary team at Ventura County Animal Services. During his recovery he became more and more aggressive to the staff and was unable to be cared for properly due to his behavior. Surfcat got the call that he was no longer adoptable and would need to be humanely euthanized. Because of his medical condition he was not a candidate for the barn program. Surfcat was able to rescue Theo and offer him a homelike setting while he recovered from his leg amputation, cracked hard palate and numerous other injuries. He is able to learn how to walk on three legs and is socializing with the other Surfcats. This picture speaks volumes as to what can be accomplished with space, love and patience. But Theo isn’t the first and most definitely not the last to need our help. Please donate today so we can help more kitties like Theo.
