Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Project Delta View Cats Has Arrived!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I promised to share what Mom L and Dad P have been up for almost two years.

Stop the press!!! Breaking News from Savannah’s Paw Tracks!!!

When we moved to our final forever home in Pittsburg, CA, Mom L and Dad P found more abandoned, stray community cats than they have ever known. Their work began with the kitties in the photo collage below.

The orange kitty is Pumpkin, living on a street corner for eighteen months after being abandoned when guardians moved from apartment near us. The kittens are Rocky, Jessie and Chloe, born in a neighbor’s closet and they could not afford to spay/neuter them and their mom Piper. Mom cat Mandi and her kitten Andi living at the Elk’s Lodge near us and Strider, who lived his sixteen years at our River View Park cat colony.

These kitties led Mom L and Dad P to create a program we hope you will support—Project Delta View Cats.

Who we are

We’re Project Delta View Cats (PDVC), a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) based in Pittsburg, CA, working tirelessly to stabilize the city’s abandoned community cat population through a targeted Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. The mission of Project Delta View Cats (PDVC) is to promote and provide humane management of community cats within the City limits of Pittsburg, California. Educating the community is our primary goal! We are starting this summer to work with our local public schools.

Where we operate (Pilot area)_

We are currently identifying and helping to trap abandoned community cats along our city’s waterfront neighborhoods.

Our partnerships make us unique

For 15 months, we’ve been working on lining up our partnerships with the City of Pittsburg, Contra Costa Animal Services, Community Concern for Cats, and Friends of Contra Costa Animal Shelters to promote and deliver humane management of abandoned community cats and to conduct ongoing targeted TNR.

PDVC elected to NOT become another 501 c3 community cat rescue. We do not have a referral line for city residents to call when they need community cats trapped. We are PRO-active, not RE-active. We are going door to door searching each segment of our pilot neighborhoods to educate residents about spay, neuter and help those who feed community cats get them spayed, neutered and medical care if needed. Our unique Neighborhood Cat Watch residents will alert us whenever a new cat enters their neighborhood so we can immediately TNR that cat.

We are creating a “Humane Community Cat Management and Education Program In A Box”!!! We will make sure other cities anywhere can follow in my, Savannah’s, paw tracks!!

How you can help

Donation: All donations are tax-deductible and are slated for food, vaccination, spay/neuter, purchase of traps and recovery cages, and additional medical costs for any sick, injured or end-of-life services.

  • The cost to spay/neuter one cat is $45-65.
  • The monthly food cost for one colony cat is approximately $18, being fed once daily for the River View Park/marina colonies. Our volunteers spend about $4,000 to $5,000 per year to feed 40+ cats along our public waterfront.

Our donation web page is www.deltaviewcats.org.

Volunteer:  Join us and help make a difference! It’s exciting and rewarding!

CONTACT MOM L AT: INFOPDVC AT GMAIL DOT COM

You don’t need to live here!! We are desperate for volunteers who are familiar with Face Book and Instagram to help us keep our social media channels filled with fun stories, interesting cat facts. We have tons of photos and will share with qualified social media users.

There you have it!! We sure do hope some of my readers are willing to join us “purr-tually” and agree to become contributors, editors for our Face Book and Instagram social media network.

We are gonna ROCK HUMANE COMMUNITY CAT MANAGEMENT EDUCATION AND SERVICE with youR support and real time help!!! Let’s teach the community cat rescue world how to save them all through partnerships!!

    What a great program !

  10. This is such a wonderful, amazing project Mom L and Dad P founded. Someday I’m hoping you’ll hope the resources and maybe a backer to buy a bus and take Project Delta View Cats on the road like The Lucy Project. You could teach TNR leaders in many communities how to start their own Project Delta View Cats. Maybe you can get some of the local vets involved by handing out educational literature to their clients.

  12. What an amazing project, and how awesome that your humans are doing this, Savvy!

  13. We are really proud of the vision and follow through of Mom L and Dad P. When you take action in a deliberate and thoughtful way things can change and educating others and demonstrably aiding those in need will do so much for so many.
    We are on the other side of the Country but will try and help in our way

  14. We all love you for all you are doing to help those sweet helpless souls.

  15. S & S & K….much success to mom L & dad P’s in their new endeavor; now and in the years to come ~~~~~~~~ ♥♥♥♥♥

    That may be a good idea…seeing about getting the Churches involved as Billie above me here in comments stated. Or perhaps a grade in a school? Is there a community college or a university near? Find raisers may be done with them if they are willing to help.

    God bless you and your husband for helping the helpless. You are being good stewards.

    We are so proud to know you and MomL and DadP. You saw need and developed a plan. I hope my HuMom would do as well. Mistletoe, Pumpkin and a Tiger are all so proud to have appeared in your memes and are telling everyone at the Rainbow Bridge that they call you friend. We hope our HuMom finds a way to pitch in from the East Coast and that your program spreads across this county and world until you put yourselves out of business.

  18. Billie Cummings on said:

    Mom L. What a great program you have created! I was wondering if you got the churches involved in helping? Thank you for all the time you spent creating this coalition for the community cat.
