MISSION: Finds good homes for local shelter animals in need. They occasionally accept an animal from outside the Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay areas but the bulk of their adoptable animals come from the Santa Cruz/Watsonville, Salinas City and Monterey County shelters.
Their Working Whiskers Program is designed to help cats that are not readily adoptable. This includes at-risk cats at local shelters that are not “social” (feral or semi feral cats), but that would be wonderful working cats. A working cat is a cat or group of cats placed in a safe location with shelter (barns, garages, commercial buildings, sheds, etc.) and typically do the job of rodent control very effectively. A bonus is that often these cats become more social once placed and some become highly social with their caregivers.
