Catland is Now Open

Once again, there are two rooms for viewing cats at the Agoura Hills Animal Shelter.

With little fanfare, but with great excitement, the Agoura Hills Animal Shelter is happy to announce that all cat rooms are now open to the public after months of ceiling reconstruction and improvement.

The western-most room houses cats in enclosures. If you have lost a cat, this is where to look for it. When kittens are available, this is where they reside. Also, newly arrived strays and owner surrenders remain here until they are reunited with their human or can be tested to make sure they are free of illness and are sociable.

The room with the foyer entry is called the Habicat. Cats in this area are able to roam freely and visitors can interact with them. They are spayed/neutered, microchipped and have had their shots, so they are ready and available to go to their forever homes at once; no waiting! These cats are specially selected to live in this area. Why?

•They get along with other cats

•They are social with people.

•They use the litter box with consistency.

•They have proven to be free of communicable illness.

The photos of the cats featured in this article are just a sampling of those awaiting new homes. Come down to the shelter and find the feline that is just right for you.

The Agoura Shelter is at 29525 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills. Occasionally pets have already been adopted. To check availability, call 818-991-0071 or visit the website.

It is really fantastic that Agoura has the funding to do such wonderful things for homeless animals! And all the incredible community support they get it, as always, is inspiring! I wrote my pet column working with The Agoura Shelter for over 18 years, it's encouraging to see the euthanasia rates drop dramatically in that time. On the other end of the spectrum are the Los Angeles Shelters, without this extra funding or committed support the results are: "Over 50,000 animals pass through Los Angeles’ six city-run shelters each year. Of those, about 40 percent— around 30 percent of dogs and 60 percent of cats—receive lethal injections." A HORRIFIC NUMBER OF DEATHS! So shameful. Within a short drive from the Agoura Animal Shelter wonderful pets are dying by the tens of thousands. This is not even including Venture shelters, another heartbreak My hope is that all animal lovers will support our shelter systems, all of them! This mass killing of "man's best friends" must end and certainly within our community! Let's use Agoura as an example of what can be done - and broaden our support!

Back in the early 1980's my daughter and I picked out a cat at the Agoura Animal Shelter. Or I sould say, my daughter picked her out. The cat was about 6 months at the time. We had that cat for more than 17 years. My daughter and her cat grew up together. The cat moved with us from ThousandOaks, to SanLuisObispo, to SanDiego. She was such a part of our lives....and we still miss her. But we have tons of photos of her, and we remember all the fun we had with her.
