Town Cats Community Cat Cupboard


Town Cat’s established The Cat Cupboard Relief Program in 2020, with the intent of providing support to families who are experiencing financial hardship caused by the pandemic and other economic challenges. Town Cat’s knows how important it is to have support during difficult times, and we aim to keep families together and reduce the possibility of animal surrender due to lack of resources.

Our new, permanent Community Cat Cupboard is here to help ensure that a lack of food won’t cause undue stress due to surrendering the pet to a shelter and losing a beloved part of the family. Our program is available to all residents of Santa Clara county experiencing financial hardship regardless of the reason. We operate out of our shelter- and have bags available at St. Catherine’s Reach Out pantry in Morgan Hill.

If you need help or would like more information about our Cat Cupboard Relief Program, please contact us by emailing info@towncats.org
