CAT TOWN Story
Cat Town was founded by Ann Dunn while she was a volunteer at Oakland Animal Services, Oaklandâ€™s municipal shelter, she saw the challenges faced by the severely under-resourced shelter to adequately care for the number of animals it receives each year, and the specific difficulties cats face in a shelter environment. Ann was quickly joined by other shelter volunteers to create an alternative to the shelter for the cats who are at greatest risk for euthanasia.
Part of what makes Cat Town unique is that several members of our core team are still volunteers at OAS and work closely with the cats there. This helps them identify the cats who most need their help. And, while they are fully independent of OAS, they work in close collaboration with shelter staff and consider supporting that shelter to be integral to their mission.
SINCE 2011, CAT TOWN HAS HELPED MORE THANÂ 2,300 CATSÂ THROUGH THEIR FOSTER PROGRAM AND CAGE-FREE ADOPTION CENTER.
