Bay Area Rescue Resources

Bay Area Rescue Groups and Shelters

Town Cats is not the only rescue group in the Bay Area. There are many cat, dog, rabbit, and other animal specific groups who work hard to rescue as many animals as possible. If looking to rehome or surrender an animal, we encourage you to contact each group. Just because one group is full does not mean all the other are.

When contacting Rescue Groups/Shelters, provide as much information as possible such as situation, timeframe/urgency, history, color, sex, age & personality of animal, reason for placement, medical work, etc. Most rescue groups are volunteer and not government funded. They will assist you if they can.

Below is our resource listing showing all the rescue groups and shelters in the bay area. In addition, we have provided resources for purchase and rental of humane traps used in Trap-Neuter-Return.
