Project Delta View Cats is a 100 % volunteer-led program that ensures all community cats in our pilot project, in and around our marina area, are trapped, altered, vaccinated and returned back to the location they were found. Friendly community cats and kittens are entered into adoption paths if available. Ensuring that the cats are altered greatly reduces the potential for population growth in this area.
Our pilot project is currently bound by River View Park, up Linda Vista Avenue to 4th Street, across 4th Street to Harbor Street and back down Harbor to the waterfront. This includes the central promenade marina area, Basin #3 and surrounding residential and businesses.
Project Delta View Cats (PDVC) team members have created a program to promote and deliver humane management of Pittsburg's community cat population. We proactively go into targeted areas in Pittsburg, invite community cat feeders/caretakers to register with us so we can assist them with no cost spay, neuter and vaccination services.
PDVC is also caring for twenty plus abandoned community cats that reside in Pittsburg's River View Park. Our registered volunteer caretakers provide food and water at designated feeding stations built by the City of Pittsburg. They also monitor the resident community cats and make sure all cats are altered (spayed or neutered), allowing them to live long healthy lives with minimal impact to our community. You can learn more about our work with this special cat colony in the ABC Channel 7 News video below.
By donating below you are helping the PDVC team to care for community cats in Pittsburg. Our ultimate goal is to humanely reduce the number of abandoned community cats outdoors, leading to much less risk and harm to the cats. This will in time reduce predation of birds and wildlife and decrease the public’s concerns about potential public health and nuisance-related issues.
As a program through Friends of Contra Costa Animal Shelters (FOCCAS) we hold 501 (c) 3 status—82-4157536. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Contact your tax professional for specific questions.
