FERAL FREEDOM
The Humane Society of Stanislaus County is teaming up with Stanislaus County Animal Services, Cat Network of 
Stanislaus, other rescues and individuals to reduce the euthanasia rates of cats and kittens in our community!

This program will allow residents of Stanislaus County (except Turlock, Oakdale/Riverbank, and Newman whose 
residence falls within those city limits) will be able to surrender feral / community cats to the Stanislaus County 
Animal Services Shelter at 3647 Cornucopia Way (off Crows Landing Rd between Hackett and Service Rd) during
 regular business hours.

Those cats will then be evaluated for adoption. If a cat is too feral, or an unlikely candidate for adoption they will 
no longer be euthanized if healthy -- instead they will be spayed/neutered/vetted and ear tipped. KITTENS MUST
 BE AT LEAST 3 LBS to participate. This weight is not only to give them a better chance of surviving surgery, but 
studies shows kittens under that weight have not proven to be self sufficient in finding food sources.

The Humane Society of Stanislaus County, and other volunteers will go to the shelter to pick up these cats so 
that they may be returned to the community to live free, without the ability to reproduce.

We are very excited about this program, and will need many volunteers to participate in releasing these cats 
every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. We have high hopes that we not only immediately reduce euthanasia, but 
can look forward to a greatly reduced "Kitten Seasons" in the future.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS INTENDED FOR STRAY CATS. IF YOU ARE A FERAL CAT 
"CARETAKER" AND WANT TO ENSURE THAT THE CATS/KITTENS ARE RETURNED TO YOU, PLEASE 
USE ALTERNATE PROGRAMs FOR SPAY/NEUTER. 
FOR MORE INFORMATION CLICK ON LOW COST SPAY & NEUTER TAB IN MENU.

Update: From June 1st to December 31th 2013, Humane Society volunteers have released 
1,262 cats back to the community. We have also taken in some very friendly cats and 
kittens saved through the Feral Freedom Program and are now available for adoption.

Our volunteers have spent countless hours, and their own money on gas returning this cats
to every corner of this County. We have added a Feral Freedom category to our donation 
list. It is our hope that we can use these donations not only to help care for cats we rescue 
for adoption, but to use part of the funds to purchase gas cards for our volunteers to show
 our gratitude for their hard work and dedication. If you would like to show your 
appreciation as well, go to our Donate Tab and select Feral Freedom.

Help us Help pets in need of Emergency Vet Care
 



Help us give pets a chance...

The Humane Society has started a Life Savers Fund, and after only two pets helped our 

fund has been depleted!

With Volunteer Linda Sherman we helped lab puppy Lexi, with a much needed cardiac 

surgery due to a severe heart murmer. We also helped Holly, a chow mix with a 

fractured femur--who still requires a second surgery to remove the plate. We have 

created a special donation form to help with Holly's surgery specifically.

But we get calls and emails weekly from people requesting assistance with veterinary 

needs outside of spay and neuter. It is painful to turn them away, knowing there is little 

to no funding for such assistance. We all love our pets, and know how costly proper 

veterinary care can be (it's one of our largest expenses for our adoptable animals!) it is 

devastating to be unable to help pets in dire need. 

 
We are asking for donations now to help with emergency vet bills for pets in need.  

So we can help pets and the families who love them in Stanislaus County.

Click here if you would like to help.  Choose “Life Savers Fund” on the on-line donation 

form. Or, if you prefer to write a check, write “Life Savers Fund” on it, and mail it to:

My name is Winston, and I am a super cute and athletic mix of breeds that might include American Staffordshire Terrier or boxer, but my foster mama says I can't really be lumped into any category because I'm really just an individual dog with my own personality and my own quirks. When I first came to live with Foster Mama, I was very, very scared. I spent most of my time pretending to be a pancake on the floor. But it didn't take long for me to learn to trust Foster Mama, and she and my canine foster sister even taught me how to play with toys. Now, I like to throw balls around, shred stuffies, and zoom through the house with my favorite toys. I love long walks on a leash and rowdy playing, but I've learned when it's appropriate to be rowdy and when I need to be calm.


My ideal home would probably be an adult home or a home with older children who are sensitive to my needs. I get along with every dog I've ever met, but I prefer slow introductions. I was even evaluated at Top Notch Kennels for group play and passed as a Go-Getter! If my new human is a runner, I would be your very most perfectest doggy ever because I love to run, and I can stay right by your side on a loose leash for miles and miles, but if you aren't a runner, I like walking very much, too, and I'm even trained to walk on a treadmill. I'm great with obedience, and I think I'd really benefit from an agility class or two. Foster mama says I'm "smart as a whip," and I do like to please my humans almost as much as I love to snuggle with them.


Please come meet me and consider taking me into your home. I can't wait to have my own humans to snuggle with and to love forever.
