The Laguna Woods Cat Club is a small but mighty band of volunteers who have been rescuing cats in our Village retirement community since 1971. We have an IRS 501 © (3) tax exempt status, and all of the resources for our Foster and Adoption Program are derived from donations and fundraising events. The Mission of this program is to provide loving, permanent homes for cats who come into our care due to abandonment or relinquishment. Our services are reserved for any resident of Laguna Woods Village, and procedures have been established to provide guidance through both relinquishment and adoption. Our highest commitment remains the health and safety of the cats entrusted to our care.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), when disaster strikes, most animal deaths occur within the first 24 to 48 hours. After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, an estimated 80% to 85% of pets were never reunited with their owners because they were not prepared with a plan for their pets.
To prevent Laguna Woods Village residents and their pets from experiencing a similar outcome in the event of a disaster, GRF appointed a volunteer group of resident animal lovers to create a disaster preparedness plan for pets living in Laguna Woods Village. As a subcommittee of the Disaster Preparedness Task Force, the group created a new survey to determine how many pets, what kind of pets and where the pets live in the Village. To help ensure that all pets are rescued in the event of a disaster, residents with pets are encouraged to complete the 2020 Survey of Laguna Woods Village Residents with Pets and return it in one of the following ways:

Three years ago one of our members adopted her first cat in 30 years!!! Needless to say, there were lots of adjustments made for both Pat and Missy. This is the story of them 'adopting' each other. Enjoy!
