The Santa Monica Cat Club was founded on the premise that all cats are precious and we all have an obligation to care for those cats in need. Every year we provide free space for one or more rescue groups at our show. Generally over the two-day event we help find forever homes for 10 to 15 homeless cats. In 2009 at the depth of the recession, owner relinquishments of cats were at an all time high. During that year’s show we were particularly pleased help 27 cats find homes.
