Facts about Chance

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10781681
  • Hair: Short

As his name suggests, this sweet little guy was given a second chance at life when he was rescued from a car engine.  In such a short amount of time, Chance has gone through a lot.  He had to have his tail amputated due to an injury, one of his eyes removed, and he tested positive for feline leukemia!  Now that he’s in the good care of a foster home, he’s ready to find a family who’s willing to give him the wonderful, comfy life that every cat deserves, no matter where they came from!

Chance is super affectionate, and one of his favorite places is people's’ laps.  He adores full body pets, and even enjoys a nice footrub (this is good news, as it will help you immensely when it comes time to trim his nails!)  Like all young cats, he’s got lots of curious energy, and loves to play.  

Since Chance is FeLV positive, he will need to be indoor only, and go to a home without other cats, or one that has other cats that are already FeLV positive.  To learn more about it, send us an email!  Chance is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and negative for FIV.  He is $50 to adopt.

About Cat Town

About Our Rescue Group...

Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) cat rescue organization based in Oakland, CA. Formed by volunteers of Oakland Animal Services (OAS) (Oakland's municipal shelter), our mission is to find homes for the cats least likely to be adopted from OAS because they can't handle the stress of the shelter environment. By getting these cats into foster homes, they can relax and show their true personalities to potential adopters. We focus on older semi-feral kittens, stressed, shy or undersocialized cats, and cats who are older and/or have special needs. We are a relatively new organization and are all-volunteer run. We operate on a shoestring budget so can always use financial donations, as well as food, litter and other supplies. We are always looking for great foster homes and volunteers for everything that we do. Helping these vulnerable cats is pure joy! Please contact us at info@cattownoakland.org to get involved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats are in foster homes, mostly in Oakland, CA, but some are in surrounding cities. Our fosters are generally very flexible about scheduling cat introductions.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our cats are in foster homes, mostly in Oakland, CA, or other nearby cities. We will talk to you by phone to make sure the cat sounds like a good fit for your home before setting up an introduction in the foster home. We have a pretty straightforward adoption application, which you will be asked to complete only after you have met a cat who you want to adopt. Our adoption fees for kittens and cats up to age 7 are $50 for a single cat or $75 for pair; cats age 8 an older are $35 for a single cat or $50 for a pair. All cats are spayed/neutered, current on their vaccinations and microchipped. Cats age six months or older are tested for FIV/FeLV.
