South County Cats does not have a physical shelter and is not able to take stray or owner-surrendered cats.

As volunteer foster homes are available, South County Cats takes in kittens whose mother (and other cats in the household or yard) are spayed or neutered through our programs. These kittens receive treatment for internal and external parasites, and are vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped before adoption.
