Our Cat Community

Cat rescue is a significant undertaking that requires the support of the community, many nonprofits, and animal shelters. In Santa Clara County, there are numerous organizations dedicated to cat rescue and welfare, including Garlic City Kitty Rescue and the San Martin Animal Shelter.


According to recent data, there are over 687animal welfare organizations operating in California, all working to provide care and support for cats and other animals in need. These organizations offer a range of services, including spaying and neutering, medical care, and adoption services.


The San Martin Animal Shelter is one such organization that plays a crucial role in cat rescue and welfare in Santa Clara County. The shelter provides temporary housing for cats in need, as well as medical care, spaying and neutering services, and adoption services. In addition to these services, the shelter also offers educational resources and outreach programs to help prevent cat overpopulation and improve the overall welfare of cats in the community.


Garlic City Kitty Rescue is another nonprofit organization working to support cat welfare in the area.  Our organization is dedicated to rescuing cats and kittens from homelessness and neglect, providing medical care and support, and finding loving homes for these animals.



Despite the efforts of these organizations, the number of cats in need of rescue and welfare remains high. According to statistics, there are still thousands of cats and kittens in need of homes in the area, and many cats are still at risk of overpopulation and homelessness.


One major issue that many nonprofits and shelters face is managing situations where individuals have a bunch of cats but are afraid the shelter will euthanize them. In these cases, education and outreach are essential, and nonprofits and shelters must work together to provide resources and support to both people and cats in need.


Partnerships and collaborations are also essential in managing these situations, and organizations can work with local veterinarians, animal control agencies, and other animal welfare organizations to provide low-cost spaying and neutering, medical care, and temporary housing for cats in need.

As a community, we must continue to support the efforts of nonprofits and animal shelters in their work to improve the welfare of cats and other animals in need. Whether through donations, volunteering, or adoption, there are many ways to get involved and make a difference in the lives of cats in our community. Together, we can help ensure that all cats have the opportunity for a happy and healthy life.


If you would like to help cats and kittens in your community, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help care for the cats waiting in foster care to be adopted into a loving home. https://www.garliccitykittyrescue.org/donate.  Your support is crucial in saving lives!
