Cat and Kitten foster parents provide short and long-term care for animals in their homes. By offering your time, love and attention, you prepare your foster cat or kitten for adoption into a permanent, loving home.
Four common reasons cats/kittens are in foster care:
  • They are too young and or underweight to be placed up for adoption.
  • A momma cat and her nursing kittens need a home environment where they can feel safe and receive proper socialization.
  • Cats or kittens who need time to recuperate from an illness or injury.
  • Cats who need socialization or behavior modification.

Our mission is to ensure and protect the health and safety of the people and animals of unincorporated
Santa Clara County.

Our shelter accepts stray dogs, cats, and livestock from the
unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County. We maintain lost and found records and actively work to reunite pet owners with their lost companions.


Our shelter accepts surrenders of dogs from owners who reside in the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County. We also accept cats as owner surrenders who were previously adopted from our facility. We evaluate each animal and attempt to place these pets in new forever homes. Please contact us in advance if you are in need of surrendering your pet.


Our shelter offers dogs, cats, and livestock for adoption. Staff and volunteers are available to assist you in choosing a new pet for your family.

Our shelter offers humane euthanasia for dogs and cats who are ill, elderly, or aggressive. Please call in advance to make sure a technician is available.
