Cats are like tribbles ...
The number-one humane call & neglect issue in our county is the excess number of cats.
Thank you for caring about homeless and stray cats. Your situation probably began with one person with a big heart, trying to help one cat. Now there seem to be cats -- everywhere.
The Bad News
There is NO shelter, NO rescue, and NO BODY who will come to your neighborhood, collect the stray cats, and find them homes.
Cats are like tribbles .. in seven years, up to 4,948 kittens can be born from one unspayed female cat and her offspring.
No action today means that the cats in your community will double in about 18 months.

Cats (and other domestic animals) are protected from abuse and neglect. It is illegal to:
* shoot, poison or otherwise injure, no matter if they are owned or unowned (See § 5534. Aggravated cruelty to animal. Tortures an animal.)
* trap and relocate to an area where care will not be provided or any place that you do not have the landowner's express permission. (See § 5533. Cruelty to animal. Abandons an animal.)
Violations of these statutes range from summary to felony offenses and are enforced.
It is legal to humanely trap and relocate cats to a location in which they are wanted and will be cared for. You must have the property owner's permission and cooperation. It is important to propertly integrate them into their new home or they will run away. Click here for how to make your relocation project a success.
It takes one person who cares enough to step up to be their advocate. You may be their only hope.
