About Us

Our Mission

Golden Oldies Cat Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit. We are a resource and advocate for cats ages 6 and older residing in Monterey County, CA, whose guardians can no longer care for them or who are at risk in local shelters. When cats are surrendered to us, they live in our volunteer foster homes until we find permanent loving adoptive homes for them. We do not accept stray or feral cats. We do not accept cats who do not use a litter box.

Our Team

Golden Oldies is led by a dedicated group that includes an all-volunteer Board of Directors, medical consultants and a small staff.
