You may visit our cats at the Dancing Cat cat lounge or via a foster home visit if the cat is not residing at The Dancing Cat.
If you have not done so prior to your application submission.
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization dedicated to saving local at-risk shelter pets from the San Jose Animal Care Center. Our goal is to give adoptable animals a chance to shine in a casual and relaxed environment, and expand opportunity for adoptions, thereby reducing the euthanasia rate in Silicon Valley. The project also seeks to create a community of cat lovers by providing a place for fun social and educational events.
The Dancing Cat's cage-free environment provides previously homeless adult cats a place to wander and play. Given a chance for their authentic kitty natures to emerge, they can find wonderful forever homes, and leave the shelter behind.
A visit to The Dancing Cat may range from active and playful to cozy and quiet. Remember, cats sleep an average of 16 hours per day. If cats are snoozing, simply relax and enjoy their calming presence. If the cats are awake, you are invited to socialize, play and join in their fun.
If there are fewer than ten cats in the room, it's because some have been adopted — a happy event! We bring new cats in to The Dancing Cat on the days that we're closed to give them a chance to adjust to their new surroundings.
The Dancing Cat first opened in May 2015 as a 4 week pop-up. The project was so popular our doors remained open for five months. In that short time The Dancing Cat welcomed over 2000 guests and found wonderful homes for over 50 cats.
In May 2016 The Dancing Cat reopened its doors and remains a popular place for cat lovers to meet and mingle in the company of cats.
We are always on the look out for volunteers who want to work hard and enjoy the company of cats.
We are located at 702 East Julian Street San Jose CA 95112. We are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 shelter in place orders. We are facilitating adoptions via Zoom meet and greets.
