Cal’s build is like a feline football player – he has a big head and a thick, muscular neck that he enjoys having massaged. Having lived outdoors, he has a few scars from his…Continue

Someone to Love and Adora
Our sweet Adora was found as a stray when she was still a young kitten. Her time on her own has made her a little shy and wary of humans to start, but with a little love and patience, this girl will be sure to settle in and steal your heart.

THEY ARE OUT!!!!!
Enormous "THANKS!" go to our President, Karen Dwinell, and Head of the Cat Adoption and Foster Teams, Bob Miegl and Corinne Mitchell, for spending untold hours finding homes for each of the critters who had suffered through the ringworm outbreak.
Now the cats and dogs, kittens and pups can rest and recover from the turmoil of the past few months...and so can Karen, Bob and Corinne! But, these dedicated volunteers remain on call…
Many of our supporters have contacted us with concerns over the ringworm outbreak at the Coronado Animal Care Facility. Unfortunately, we have become aware that many people have received inaccurate information regarding the situation. Here are the true facts:

It turns out that Sophia is a delightful cat – sweet natured, gentle and loving.…
