A little help for friends in need

Community Action Team

The Community Action Team (C.A.T.) is a response to the growing call for help from people in our community who struggle to meet their pet’s needs. We are here to help pets and their families stay together and nurture the human/animal bond within our community. We provide equal access to pet food and supplies, low-cost preventive care, education, as well as connections to other resources in our community.

Our goal is to:

  • Assist our community with compassion and care through our direct services
  • Find partners that share our values and our mission to help neighbors in need
  • Collaborate with other animal welfare organizations to maximize access to resources
  • Nurture the human/animal bond with safety net programs that minimize pet surrenders to local shelters and help pets and their families stay together
  • Reduce pet-related barriers that limit access to housing
  • Encourage community involvement to help neighbors and their pets
  • Provide access to animal welfare education for communities with limited resources

Our Pet Food Pantry provides free dog and cat food to local pet owners when they need a little extra help caring for their beloved pets. This service is supplied only through donations and is proving essential, now more than ever, due to rising costs and uncertain times. Your donation helps fight hunger for Sonoma County pets.
