We do not have the capacity to trap cats. However, we can refer you to Neighborhood Cat Advocates at 530-324-2292 or FUR at 530-413-7955.
At this time, we only have the capacity to take in domesticated cats. Please reach out to Neighborhood Cat Advocates, a non-profit organization that does TNR (trap, spay/neuter, re-release) for feral cats. Call 530-324-2292.
Our shelter is not set up to take in or care for cats under 6 months of age. Our facility is not equipped for the needed care of baby kittens. Please reach out to FUR (Friends United in Rescue) at 530-413-7955 or Butte Humane Society Cat Adoption Center at 530-343-7917.
We work with people on a case-by-case situation for strays. We work within the Chico area and immediate surrounding areas. The first step is an owner should be looked for. Legally, an owner needs to be sought out for 30 days. You can post on 530 pets and also Cody alert. They are both on Facebook.
We have a surrender process! This is what it entails: - Cats need to be up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered. - Pre-intake paperwork from our website needs filled out and then presented to the Board for consideration. - We have a surrender fee of $200. If finances are a consideration, you can put a Facebook post together with pictures, personalities, temperament, and your story/need for your kitty. Tag us, (please notify us via Facebook Messenger so we can look for it) and we can do a complimentary post on our FB page for you. Friends, neighbors, family, co-workers are good to reach out to as well. If you are affiliated with a church, you can put a posting there. Your local veterinary office may allow a posting there.
We'd love to show you around and introduce you to the cats. You can contact us to set up an appointment via Facebook Messenger.
Adoption fee for one cat is $75.00. Adoption fee for one kitten (6 mo. - 1 yr.) is $85.00
