SNAP Cats rescued Snowy from Orange County, CA. Snowy laid half-dead on a busy Orange County street, barely dodging cars as they sped by. A heroic young woman, Erika, stopped traffic, scooped Snowy up and took her immediately to a vet where they did very little to help her condition. So Erika got in touch with Michelle, who coordinates Pilots N Paws emergency flights. Michelle emailed us. And Snowy was on her way to SNAP Cats.

On the way from Charles Schulz (Santa Rosa) Airport, Snowy stopped moving. We resuscitated her and got her to SNAP Cats as fast as we could. Gave her fluids, syringe fed her high-calorie food, and gave her around-the-clock attention. Snowy’s bloodwork showed anemia, chronic renal failure, hyperthyroid, and liver disease. We went to work to give Snowy a fighting chance. Her recovery was a roller coaster ride, but today Snowy is healthy and happy. We solved all of her issues except hyperthyroid, which is a simple two pills a day that she takes extremely well.

We don’t know how long Snowy’s new life will last. We do know that she’s a wonderful, loving kitty appreciative of attention and love. Snowy's left eye will be removed after she gains a little weight. And she will receive a dental at the same time. Snowy’s not great with other cats, but she’s not aggressive if confronted. And she does have a slight nipping problem when being pet, but we’re making progress on modifying that. If you’d like to give Snowy a warm, comfortable home until it’s her time please let us know. She deserves nothing but the best considering how far she’s come.

About SNAP Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal shelters, cat rescues and sanctuaries in Sonoma County (and the U.S.) are full. Innocent cats are being killed due to lack of space and/or funds. The first cats to be killed are special needs, elderly and feral cats, or cats who aren’t deemed “adoptable.” That’s unacceptable.

SNAP Cats is the only rescue & sanctuary in Sonoma County dedicated to special needs cats. SNAP Cats' specific focus is rescuing these cats, housing them, then finding them loving homes. We believe, if given a few more days or weeks or months, an older or special needs or feral cat can find the home that they deserve.

Therefore all cats at SNAP Cats, regardless of health, age or temperament, are available for adoption or foster care. Those who cannot or are not adopted, due to age, illness or temperament, are able to live out the remainder of their natural lives in a peaceful, healthy, serene environment, free from judgment or harm.

Come Meet Our Pets...

SNAP Cats is open by appointment only. Please email or call to set up a day and time to come see our kittens and cats.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee is a donation in an amount that the adopter feels is appropriate. All prospective adopters must fill out an adoption application, then meet with an adoption councilor. For local adoptions we perform a home inspection.
