Thirty years later...My own neighborhood has the concept of The Neighborhood Cat very well integrated into its fabric. All the cats in my neighborhood are spayed and neutered, well fed and “litter free” - referring not to garbage, but to the fact it has been over twenty years since there has been a litter of kittens born in our neighborhood. A neighborhood can be transformed with the right type of help and we have the experience of both having been educators and animal lovers to make these changes happen in Oakland neighborhoods.
Oakland and Hungry Kitty has the volunteers who are willing to do the hard work of education, transportation of cats to surgeries and other volunteer and charitable work with cats. Funds for these expenses often make the difference between an area being a healthy and happy neighborhood where cats are respected and loved or being part of a neighborhood where the cats are mistreated and abused. Hungry Kitty has the years of experience to help neighborhoods make these important changes. We need your help to continue our important work!Pat Smyklo, Director
