Other Pets at Shelter...
Panther got his name from his sleek black fur, solid muscular build, and extra toes. He's a polydactyl cat which means he has an extra toe on each foot. He's stealth-like and is a very large, solid guy. Even so, he is a very gentle cat. Panther is also very affectionate and outgoing. He loves everybody and loves to be with you. He does like to play at times but mostly ends up sitting in the sun and watching goings on outside the window. Panther likes most other cats. He's an alpha cat but generally keeps to himself unless provoked. Kittens love to crawl all over him in his foster home! He'd be fine as a solo cat or with another cat and he's gentle, so kids are okay too, 4+. He tolerates mellow dogs. He'd be a great family pet! We estimate he was born in June of 2007. Bio# 3196 DJ
Rescue Group Info...
ICRA is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the suffering of the abandoned cat population of Alameda and Oakland, and to educate people to their plight. We provide foster homes for our rescues until we can place them into loving homes through our adoption program. On a limited basis, we humanely trap feral cats in order to spay/neuter them before releasing them back to their colonies. Our goal is to expand our program for maintaining cat colonies in our communities. To make this expansion possible, we need more volunteers.
Adoptions are hosted at PETCO, 2310 S. Shore Center, in Alameda's South Shore Center, every Saturday from —
11 am to 4:00 pm
No cats show on major holiday weekends.
Enter the store, head to the right past the registers and straight ahead to the far wall of the store.There is a door there where you will find our cats.

Potential adopters pick out a cat or kitten and fill out an application.
There will be a short interview with one of our volunteers. Adoptions do not happen the same day. We will arrange a time to visit your home and the foster parents and a volunteer will meet there. Our adoption fee structure is:
- Cats and kittens (six months to 8 years): $100
- Cats (over 8 years): $75
- Two cats: Full amount for the higher amount cat, half amount for the lower amount cat
For example: a kitten and an adult would be: $100 + $50 = $150
Prior to Adoption all cats and kittens are:
- Spayed or neutered
- FeLV and FIV tested
- FVRCP vaccinated
- De-wormed, and
- Treated for fleas with Advantage or Frontline
