2. Utilizing the aforementioned fund to support this rescue, foster and adoption of Laguna Woods’ cats and to provide financial and other resources to qualified Laguna Woods’ residents who need help providing for their cats.
3. Creating a friendly forum where cat lovers can socialize and learn about all things “cat”.
4. Being a major information clearing house on local feline resources, services and events.
5. Coordinating with other cat rescue organizations in Orange and San Diego Counties to share mutual help and support.
