Can I bring in a feral cat?

Yes, but please be aware that truly feral cats cannot be accepted into our adoption program. If a cat is semi-social, we are able to place them as barn or shop cats. We encourage you to attempt cat deterrents to help solve issues you are experiencing.

We also encourage you to contact the Central Coast Humane Society to learn about local Trap/Neuter/Return options. You can also contact the Feral Cat Coalition for information about caring for community cats. We encourage colony caretakers to take steps to help the cats be good neighbors.
