    Oakland Cat Town Cafe Lowers Feline Euthanasia Rate

    Griffin is Cat Town Cafe's most recent feline to be fostered.

    Oakland's Cat Town Cafe and Adoption Center is purring along nicely.

    According to Inside Scoop SF, the combination coffee spot and kitty fostering hangout has succeeded in adopting out 184 cats since it opened in October, which has brought the euthanasia rate at partner organization Oakland Animal Services down from 41 to 21 percent.

    Those statistics may or may not take into account the most recent foster animal, Griffin, an orange and white cat who was one of the cafe's longest residents; he got fostered on Monday.

    Cat Town Cafe's Saving Pets crowdfunding campaign has currently raised $29,232 to continue this nonprofit rescue mission.
