The Homeless Cat Network

The Homeless Cat Network

The Homeless Cat Network (HCN) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit feline rescue organization. Our mission is to promote humane solutions for the feral and stray cat population in San Mateo County.

HCN believes that Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the most successful approach to feral cat management. Once sterilized and returned to their home territories, feral cats can live without the burden of constant reproduction. HCN practices responsible colony management, feeding neutered cats a healthy diet and educating local residents and businesses about the cats in their community. When possible, we rescue kittens of socializable age and tame strays, so they can find forever homes.

HCN provides advice, assistance, and mentoring to individuals, public agencies, and businesses. We offer training in the following: humane trapping, socialization, foster care, colony management, and adoption procedures. A variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities are available for reliable, caring people.
