At the request of the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®), the Seattle Area Feline Rescue in Shoreline has taken in three homeless cats from Oakland Animal Services (OAS) as a result of the Northern California wildfires.

The ASPCA Relocation team collaborated with Alaska Airlines to transport these cats from Oakland to create room at OAS for animals displaced by the wildfires and to give these cats a better chance of adoption.

Seattle Area Feline Rescue is one of three animal shelters in the Northwest who received cats from the transport. These cats will be made available for adoption at Seattle Area Feline Rescue after they have been neutered / spayed.

“We are grateful to the ASPCA for all their work to help these felines and many more like them” said Amy Mills, Operations Manager with Seattle Area Feline Rescue. “Our team is excited to meet the kitties and find them loving homes!”

This transport is part of the ASPCA’s recent disaster relief efforts to help care for hundreds of animals impacted by the wildfires that have devastated Northern California.

As part of that effort, the ASPCA assisted with assessments, coordinated resources and logistics, and conducted welfare checks for displaced animals.

The ASPCA also sent critical pet supplies to Sonoma and Mendocino counties to help shelter and care for the influx of animals affected by the catastrophic fires.

To date, the ASPCA Relocation team has assisted nearly 100 animals displaced by the recent string of disasters to states throughout the Northwest.

“We are grateful to our partner shelters in the Northwest, including Seattle Area Feline Rescue, who open their doors to animals in need,” said Lance Hunter, Director of ASPCA Relocation Team, Los Angeles. “We are thrilled to help move these homeless cats from Oakland Animal Services to communities in the Northwest where they will have a greater chance of finding safe and loving homes.”
