MISSION: Re-homes cats 6 and older from Monterey County who are at risk in shelters or whose guardians can no longer care for them. Places these cats, who have no other options of a safe place to go, into temporary foster care while working to find them permanent loving homes, enriching the lives of both the cats and their new families. Golden Oldies makes a lifetime commitment to those cats. They will either be adopted or live out their lives in their foster homes. Golden Oldies also has a Temporary-Emergency Foster Care Program for guardians of its adopted cats who are facing short-term medical issues, pending available foster homes. In addition, it has a Matchmaker Fund that pays expenses for life for a Matchmaker Cat should someone be the perfect fit to be a pet parent but cannot afford to adopt.
