FREE Sonoma County CAT Adoptions


Saturday, November 12 and running through Saturday, November 26, more than 100 cats from the Sonoma County Animal Shelter will be available for adoption at no cost.
The shelter’s cat population is at capacity, and more cats are taken in each day. According to shelter supervisor Cathy McCafferty, “Cat adoptions have slowed, while we’ve had an increase in the number of cats coming in”.

McCafferty added that despite the high numbers, shelter staff remain committed to making the right adoption match. “The adoption fee will be waived, but our adoption screening process will be the same”.

All cats have been examined by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, leukemia/FIV tested and microchipped.

Sonoma County Animal Care and Control is open Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5:30 p.m. Adoptions can be processed until 4:30 p.m. daily. Our mission is to protect the health and safety of people and animals, investigate and prosecute animal cruelty, abuse and neglect cases, educate the public about responsible domestic animal ownership, reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs, provide a safe environment for animals in need and place adoptable animals into caring homes. Sonoma County Animal Care and Control enforces local, state, and federal laws pertaining to animals, and operates a full service animal shelter serving more than 5,600 animals annually.
