Help Rescue Cats in Long Beach Get a Home

$673 of $15,000 goal

Created May 16, 2019
Long Beach Felines is a non-profit cat rescue organization dedicated to helping homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused cats and kittens.  We take in stray cats and kittens and get them ready for adoption. We currently have over 20 cats and kittens in our care, and we're expanding our reach to support special needs cats as well. 

Long Beach Felines is partnering with Feline Good Social Club to create a space in Long Beach where rescue cats can meet the community and find their forever homes. Unfortunately, city approval for the FGSC's cat lounge has been delayed and we need funds to keep our cats happy and healthy until they can be moved into the new space.

Your donations will go a long way in ensuring that healthy nutrition and socialization can be provided for the cats while they wait for their new home at Feline Good Social Club. Donations cover expenses such as:

-Cat food

-A safe and stimulating environment for the cats

- Vaccinations and spay/neuter fees

-Additional vet consultations as needed to keep the cats in good health

-Medicine to treat and prevent conditions like fleas/parasites

-Resource assistance for other local cat rescues

Why cat rescue is important (even if you're not a cat lover!):

Cat rescue efforts are vital not only for the health of cats, but also for the local community as well. Cats are an invasive species and can harm populations of native animals such as birds and small mammals. Limiting the number of feral cats in the community through spay/neuter and adoption efforts allows native animals to flourish in their natural habitats, as well as ensuring that the cats themselves are healthy and well-cared for.

Like many other small animals, cats are often prey to larger carnivores such as coyotes. Keeping the feral cat population small and adopting cats into safe, indoor-only homes discourages predators from entering residential neighborhoods to look for prey, and can help protect other pets as well.

Active spay/neuter efforts reduce the burden on city and county-run shelters of caring for additional animals.

Join us in creating a happier, healthier Long Beach for both the cats and the community!

Hi everyone, thanks so much for the shares and donations! We’ve reached $385 of our goal, and we’re so grateful to each and every one of you who has invested in us.

As of early July, we’re one step closer to getting the City of Long Beach’s approval to open our doors; once our business license is approved, we’ll be able to start accepting visitors and sharing our cats with you!

We’re continuing to ask for donations because the 3-month delay has set us back in our rescue efforts significantly and we need all the help we can get to care for our original cats, along with the abundance of kittens we’ve taken in this season. We’re excited for you to meet the cats you’ve so generously supported and are working hard to get everything approved by the city as fast as possible.

Please continue to share this GoFundMe page with your fellow cat lovers and together we’ll help make Long Beach a healthier, happier place for the cats and the community.

Love,

LB Felines and the FGSC Team
