North County Paws Cause
Dedicated to improving the lives of cats and kittens in
Northern San Luis Obispo County
Did you know? The average unaltered cat has between 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more then 100 kittens!
A single pair of cats and their kittens can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just 7 years!
That is why North County Paws Cause works to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) feral cats living in our community. Please give us a call if you are needing help in reducing the overpopulation of community cats thru TNR.
North County Paws Cause partners with San Luis Obispo County Animal Services to identify feral and community cats brought into the shelter and at risk of euthanasia. These cats are good candidates for return to a colony or to our Barn Cat Program.
As volunteer availability and vet spay/neuter space allows, we typically take in over 100 cats and kittens into our fosters homes: from bottle babies to socializing kittens to get them ready for adoption.
Barn Cat/ Working Cat Program
Sometimes we meet cats that may not be or make a good "pet" cat, but they are tremendous cats with engaging personalities. These cats often have higher independence needs and less tolerance for human contact than "pet" cats and often thrive in non traditional settings such as a ranch, barn, vineyard, garden center, workshop, warehouse, etc. Working cats are valued for their alert personalities and offer natural rodent control.
We know life can have some major changes--moving, a death of a loved one--and sometimes re-homing a cat or kitten is needed. We can help!
Our adoptable cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, vaccinated (age appropriate), FeLV/FIV tested, flea and worm treated. All adoptions come with a voucher for a free veterinary medical exam.
Feral/community cats have their left ear tipped to identify that they have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated.
