“Hi my name is Thurston! I am a gentle, lovable boy. I love to be in the company of humans and I am looking for that special person(s) to give me my forever home. Unfortunately , my last person had to move and could not take me with them. I am used to, and would prefer, to be your one and only kitty. I was born in 2002, and by nature I am a pretty low-key fella. I would be happy just lounging around and enjoying my senior years with you. If you are looking for an only kitty who would be a loyal companion, I’m your guy. Please come by the center to meet me soon!” Feel free to visit our website at www.homelesscatnetwork.com. You can also see Thurston and our other kitties at www.petfinder.com and www.adoptapet.com. You may call the Homeless Cat Network Hotline at 650—286-9013.
Homeless Cat Network works hard to help cats and kittens in need on the San Francisco Peninsula. We provide advice, support and guidance to people who have found and wish to help community cats, and our volunteers do hands-on rescue work.
Our lifesaving initiatives focus on solving the root problem of cat homelessness and include: TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) programs for feral cats; kitten rescuing, fostering and adoption efforts; educational outreach; responsible community cat colony management; and mentoring people to help cats in need. We also have a unique Socialization Center, which gives abandoned, abused and neglected adult cats the chance to heal from their emotional and physical wounds and find the home of their dreams. All of our efforts work toward a single goal: to bring about a day when there are no more homeless cats, and with your help, we'll make that dream come true.
Our adoption process includes: (1) The application; (2) An in-person meeting with the cat and an HCN volunteer; and (3) A home visit to discuss safety and adjustment issues, prior to the adoption. An adoption contract will be signed and an adoption fee collected.
