Shelter FAQs

Animal Intake

Are public shelters required to accept/intake stray cats?

No. California law does not require public shelters to retrieve or impound healthy cats, even if they are free-living in the community. This applies to all healthy cats, including feral cats, or tame/socialized cats who are found without an identifiable owner.

Are public shelters required to accept owner-surrendered animals?

No. California law does not require public shelters to accept animals being surrendered by their owners. If they do accept them, they must be subject to applicable holding periods like all other animals in the shelter.

Are private shelters required to accept any animals?

No. California law does not require private shelters to accept any animals and have full discretion in deciding which animals they wish to take in. An exception would be if the private shelter has a contract with a local municipality requiring them to intake certain animals.

Community Cats

What are community cats?

What is a Community Cat Program?

A Community Cat Program (“CCP”) helps stabilize or reduce the population of community cats. It involves trapping community cats near their habitat and taking them to a facility where they are given a veterinary evaluation, routine vaccinations, and are sterilized and marked. The cats are then returned to their original habitat or another suitable habitat.
