We met our goal for our TNR matching campaign. THANK YOU all so much! Because of you, we can now spay/neuter 300 community cats!!

It costs $35 to spay/neuter, vaccinate and ear tip one community cat. We have four extremely generous supporters who will match every $35 donated up to $5,250. That means we can raise $10,500 to spay/neuter 300 community cats! We only need 55 more gift to achieve our goal!

Pets with Perks

Sam
BCAS Pet Id: 36168734

Sam is a handsome DSH cat who is searching for a family to love. Though he is not an overly affectionate cat, he would love to hang around the house with you and look out the window and chill. Sam also loves petting and head rubs. Sam is already neutered so is ready to head home with you today.

Happy Tails

Star was adopted after five months at the shelter. Star's forever family says, "Star has been really great since we adopted him. He seamlessly fit right in with our family. He is very patient with our 3-year-old and is genuinely one of the people-friendliest dogs you'll ever meet."
