Feral Paws Rescue Group

by Lupe Gore


It was late summer in 2017 when Feral Paws Rescue was asked to pull some cats and kittens from the CCSPCA in Fresno. They brought a mother and her two kittens back to the Rescue, along with others whose lives needed to be saved.

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.

It was the summer of 2012, and Paula of Feral Paws Rescue traveled to the Los Angeles County Shelter in Lancaster, CA to pick up cats who had to be pulled as their time was up at the shelter.

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.

My name is Yo Yo, and if I say so myself, I am a handsome Angora-mix boy. I am 10 years old. Five years ago, I was taken to the shelter in Lancaster ( Los Angeles County ), California. I don’t know what I did that my people would take me there, but there were a lot of other cats in the shelter, all in cages, and if they didn’t get someone to pick them up after a few days they were taken out of the cages and put to death.

Last month, Feral Paws Rescue received a call from the CCSPCA Shelter to rescue several kittens, mostly Torties, which they did. The kittens were brought to their main rescue location. At the same time, there was a dilute Tortie female who had been at the shelter along with her kittens.

One of the most rewarding parts of working in rescue is watching a cat transform from being scared to becoming friendly and trusting. I shall tell you about one very special cat I have worked with while volunteering at Feral Paws Rescue.

In June 2012 a handsome, big, brown and black tabby found himself at North Central Shelter in Los Angeles. His human had betrayed him and left him there at age eight. Thanks to some networking and help from local rescuers, he arrived at Feral Paws Rescue on June 25, and immediately went to a foster home. Feral Paws had to make sure he would be kept inside, as he was declawed.

Around three years ago a handsome gray and white cat named Austin somehow found himself at the Los Angeles County shelter in Lancaster, California. He was scared and only had days to be rescued or adopted. Thankfully Feral Paws Rescue found out about him and made the long trip to the shelter and rescued him along with a few others. Since Austin was friendly and healthy he was brought to the Rescue’s Adoption Center.

Caleigh is a beautiful long-hair Calico who was rescued by Feral Paws Rescue from a kill-shelter in Los Angeles County in late 2011. She was brought to the main rescue in Fresno, and in early February 2012, Feral Paws Rescue received a call from a lady who was interested in their Rescue and wanted another cat to add to her existing family of a handful of mostly black cats. Feral Paws Rescue brought Caleigh over to the lady’s house, and it was love at first sight. At the time, it was estimated that Caleigh was three years old. No other history was known about her, but she quickly assimilated herself to living indoors with other cats and most of all to her new human as she wanted to be with her and followed her all over the house.
