Want to learn more about our feline friends? Or are your children pestering you for a kitty and you want them to know “the big picture”–what good cat care is all about–before taking on a new family member? Or do you have a senior cat and want to make sure he/she is around and enjoying life as long as possible?

Laguna Adoption Program County Animals Team Sacramento (LAPCATS)
LAPCATS is an all-volunteer run and staffed effort to place healthy, loving adult shelter cats into forever homes. We are supported by the Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation, TEAM (the local non-profit associated with the shelter), and PetSmart. LAPCATS brings homeless shelter cats to the public through Petfinder and the Adoption Center in the Elk Grove PetSmart.
LAPCATS, established in April 2005, has now placed over 1,500 homeless shelter cats! Our cats are chosen for good temperament and adoptability, so if you are looking for a great feline companion and a real lap cat, please stop by today!
LAPCATS is a 501(c) non-profit under TEAM, the non-profit organization affiliated with Sacramento County Animal Care. Donations to LAPCATS are tax-deductible.

“Rescue animals aren’t broken, they’ve simply experienced more life than other animals. If they were human we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity them. Do something. Help to rescue. Donate. Volunteer. Foster. Adopt. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.” ~Pedigree
