Oakland like many other cities has thousands of feral and stray cats, these cats can breed rapidly, and where you might start with a couple cats without intervention two cats can soon become 10, and then 30, and then 60. Feral Change is here to help! With our group of dedicated volunteers we work to support the Oakland community spay, neuter and vaccinate feral and stray cats through TNR - Trap Neuter Return. We are 100% volunteer run, so all donations go directly to support TNR, and our foster cats and kittens. We partner with groups like ICRA and Cat Town to work with the community to fix feral cats, and to educate the community on how to do TNR on their own. 

Feral Change is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping the Oakland community control and manage its feral and homeless cat population. Our success helps ensure the health of the community and consistent care of Oakland's neighborhood cats. We focus on TNR (Trap Neuter Return) to spay and neuter free roaming and feral cats in Oakland. Our primary focus is TNR - fixing stray and feral cats. We have a very small team and limited fosters so we do not focus on foster or adoption. We are happy to help as much as we can, but we do ask that the community understand we are not a foster or adoption resource.

Cats spayed or neutered: 502

Cats and kittens we helped get off the street and find homes: 299
