feral cats, stray cats, & owned cats

IMPORTANT!  THE SHELTER IS STILL LIMITING THE INTAKE OF CATS. PLEASE SEE THE RESTRICTIONS BELOW:

  • We will accept sick or injured strays.
  • A true, unwanted feral will be accepted.
  • We are not accepting healthy, friendly cats. Many outdoor cats that are brought to the shelters are actually owned cats, and so this drastically reduces their chances of being found. This is due to the fact that cats are allowed to be free-roaming in the city of Sacramento, and cats rarely go more than 7 houses away from their home. As a result, they are likely to return home at some point.

SPAYing OR NEUTERing A FERAL CAT 

Feral cats can be fixed at the Sacramento SPCA on Sundays for FREE. To make an appointment, you may email feralcats@sspca.org or leave a message at (916) 504-2818. For more info on this program, go to www.sspca.org/feralcats.

SURRENDERING YOUR CAT

If you own a cat that you wish to surrender, please contact the Sacramento SPCA at (916) 504-2851. An appointment is required, and there is a fee for surrendering your cat. For more info, go to www.sspca.org/post/surrendering-your-pet.
