Do you see or feed cats in your neighborhood? Stray cats with no particular home or owner? These are San Francisco's community cats.

The San Francisco SPCA spays and neuters San Francisco's community cats for free. Spay-neuter, along with consistent monitoring, easily and effectively controls the community cat population. It also eliminates behaviors associated with mating such as yowling and fighting. We also vaccinate and microchip community cats before returning them to their outdoor homes.

We offer advice and assistance in managing community cat colonies. Just give us a call 415.522.3539 or email us. Whether you are an experienced advocate or need assistance trapping, we can help.
