    Town Cats

    Town Cats is a private, non-profit, No-Kill Feline Adoption Center/Shelter. Their mission is to maintain a No-Kill Adoption Center/Shelter and foster home network for friendly homeless cats and kittens awaiting adoption; to bring attention to and alleviate the suffering of homeless and feral cats in Santa Clara and San Benito counties; to educate the public about the pet overpopulation problem and provide the public with the tools to become part of the solution to assist homeless and feral cats through Trap, Neuter and Return programs; and to find permanent, loving, and safe homes for all the homeless house cats and kittens in their care.

    Detailed Information:
    Not only is Town Cats the only no-kill Shelter in Santa Clara County, it is also the only animal control agency for Gilroy and Morgan Hill. Most of the cats are rescued from county shelters that have been put on the euthanasia list due to overcrowding. Because they are a no-kill facility, they work hard to provide a healthy and happy home for all homeless cats regardless of their physical condition. This year alone they have taken in cats that have had to have eyes removed tails amputated, and mouth surgery. In each of these cases, the injury was a result of animal abuse or cruelty. In most shelter environments, these animals would have been euthanized because of the expense associated with their treatment. However, they rescue these animals, treat them, and eventually adopt them out to happy homes.
    
    In 2006, they adopted out 802 adult cats and kittens to loving homes throughout San Jose, Santa Clara, Los Gatos, Campbell, Sunnyvale, Morgan Hill and Gilroy. In addition, they managed Trap-Neuter-Return projects throughout Santa Clara County resulting in spay and neuter of over 500 feral cats. Every cat they adopt out is spayed/neutered, updated on all necessary shots and microchipped. They are also putting together several community workshops on what to do when you find a feral cat, and how to find homes for cats.
