Meow! My name is CHICO
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Little guy Chico was one of 18 cats and kittens spayed and neutered in one neighborhood in W. Oakland over Memorial Day weekend 2012. Chico showed interest in people despite having been born in the colony and never having had direct contact with people. After being in our foster care for 6 weeks, Chico is ready for adoption and looking for his forever home. He may start out shy in a new home environment but once he gets to know his new family, he is a fun, sweet, and affectionate kitten! He is full of red-headed energy and spunk too! He needs another cat friend in his home, should be fine with careful kids over age 8 and maybe cat-friendly, calm dog. We estimate he was born in the Spring of 2012. Bio# 3079 MB

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

- Treated for fleas with Advantage or Frontline
