Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We are located in the eastern part of Ventura County, CA. We serve the communities in this area including Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Moorpark, Fillmore, Santa Paula and Westlake Village.
We were a group of volunteers who worked for various nonprofit organizations. We decided to form our own nonprofit corporation in 2008 and incorporated in March of 2008. We are 3 full time volunteers with varying numbers of part time volunteers. We mainly rescue feral cats and kittens but also will take cats and kittens from the shelter when they are to be euthanized. We trap, neuter and return the ferals to a safe place . We socialize the kittens in our foster homes, sterilize them and put them up for adoption. We are the only organization that traps feral cats in the eastern part of Ventura County. We do it for the love of cats and all animals.

Our Adoption Process:
We have the adopter fill out a application questionnaire with their general information. If the adopter is a renter we require permission from the landlord before approval for adoption. Adoption is also contingent upon home approval by one of our foster mothers. If all is satisfactory then we mutually choose a pet for for adoption ie a cat that is good for the surroundings they have outlined in their application. Upon delivery of the pet by one of our foster mothers the adopter signs an Adoption Contract and pays an adoption fee of $95.00. We contact the adopters by telephone for follow up on the adoption about 1 week and 2 weeks after the adoption.
