A helping hand
for a

paw in need.



Officially started as a one women project back in 1991 to help feral and injured felines recoup in a friendly and protective environment.  We have grown every year since.  Created because some families find it too costly to continue medical care while the animal has possibly many happy eventful years left.  In a few cases, the family decides to put the animal down rather than incur this extra expense or they just abandon the animal.   Because feral or non-domesticated cats are difficult to handle they are often put down with little concern for what could have been done medically to save them.  This woman took it on herself to take in the unwanted, unloved animals that would have no quality of life if gone uncared for. She seeks out the medical help they need and works with the smaller ones getting them ready to be adopted or released.  Debbie, Mindy and their staff, house, feed, handle and medicate these animals until such time they can be released back into the wild, fostered or permanently adopted out to loving families all over San Diego County.


Working closely with the friendly staff at

El Cerrito Veterinary Hospital, Debbie, Mindy and their staff have successfully assisted numerous animals other than just felines.  There have been skunks, opossum, a variety of birds and even a dog or two.  They have been running this project with no donations, public or government assistance since 1991.  As medical costs have been on the rise, they are incurring a larger animal care cost, which is now limiting the number of animals a year they can assist.
