Feral Paws Rescue

by Lupe Gore


It was early 2013, and inside the shelter was a very scared white cat who was only one year old. He felt so abandoned and was so fearful, that he was pulling the fur out of his tail, yet he was very loving whenever humans paid attention to him. Feral Paws Rescue stepped in and saved him from certain death, as he wouldn’t be deemed adoptable with his self-destruction.

In early 2017, Feral Paws Rescue received a call from the CCSPCA (Fresno) asking if they would help with a cat who had a very bad injury that had caused tremendous swelling to his face. The shelter had already labeled this cat as “feral” since he didn’t want to have anything to do with the humans there.

As those who know of Feral Paws Rescue are aware, the Rescue saves cats and kittens from high-kill shelters. This is the story of a different type of rescue, and definitely one that could have ended in tragedy.

Feral Paws Rescue: Picaboo!

Hello, my name is Picaboo. My human family at Feral Paws Rescue called me “peek-a-boo” because I would hide behind something and stick my head around the corner to play “peek-a-boo” with them. But they couldn’t remember how to spell it.

When a shelter contacts Feral Paws Rescue, it is usually to pull kittens, or a family, or a stray cat (friendly or feral) brought in by Animal Control, or a cat who was surrendered by their owner and hasn’t been adopted within the allotted time designated by the shelter and is scheduled to be euthanized. Jazzy and Rocky were at different shelters, but now have found friendship with each other and a happy life at Feral Paws Rescue.

November means Thanksgiving is near, and that means a time to remember, a time to be grateful, and to give thanks. Thanksgiving Day usually means a time to be with family for a festive turkey dinner. I would like to share some Thanksgiving stories that are possible due in large part to the tireless work of Feral Paws Rescue.

It’s October, and that means Halloween is coming! With Halloween come ghosts, pumpkins, all things creepy and, of course, black cats. Now, there are superstitions about black cats and bad luck—which aren’t true at all. However, those superstitions still keep many people from adopting a black cat. Thankfully, for many black cats who were overlooked at kill shelters and given a death sentence, Feral Paws Rescue stepped in and saved their lives.

When Milo the kitty showed up one day at a feral feeding station in a dark, trash-strewn alley in South Los Angeles, he was just one of the hundreds of thousands of cats and kittens in this huge city who might have once had a home, but were then dumped on the street: their owners die, move away, or simply don’t want a cat around any more, and they are left to fend for themselves.
