I Found A Friendly Cat - What Do I Do?Back to listings
The first rule of responsible rescue is to assume the cat is lost and has a worried owner looking for their beloved furry family member NOT that the cat was abandoned. Accidents can happen to the most loving homes - a guest can leave a door open, a pet sitter can make a mistake. We have seen many cats reunited with their tearful and overjoyed owners based on this one single assumption – assume this cat is a lost, owned cat.
Always have the cat scanned for a microchip (veterinarians and shelters will do this for free). Report the cat found at the local shelters (Palm Springs: 760-416-5718, Riverside County Coachella Valley Animal Campus: 760-343-36444 ext 235 or ext 221). Canvas actively for the owner!
