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.
Chloe, Rocky and Jessie
Getting used to trap
Strider at 16 years in colony
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
