In 2019 we fostered and adopted over 75 cats! Some of those we fostered are shown below. We often adopt our foster cats faster than we can update our website! ...so drop us a line or check us out on facebook or instagram for out latest foster cats and kittens!
Bailey found herself at the shelter after she bit the womna of the house. They owned her for 5 years and said she is very affectionate, loves sitting in your lap and following you around. She is a spayed tonkiense and we hope to get her into a home asap. We only get a short time to foster these cats!
We live in a wonderful community where people help each other out to help hurt animals. Michelin was found in the wheel well of a tow truck. The two truck driver had to remove the wheel in order to get the kitten out! Someone posted on our neighborhood page asking for help with a rescue. One of our former fosters said she would foster if we would take him under our wing. Of course we said yes! He is a very lucky 8 week old kitten!. We took him to the veterinarian as soon as possible as he could not bear weight on his left front leg. The good news is there are no broken bones. The bad news is he has nerve damage that may be permanent requiring his leg to be amputated. We are hoping his leg will heal and he will regain use of it. Only time will tell. In the meantime, we can certainly use your donation to help with his medical expenses. Donations can be made at PayPal and venmo at Goldenyearsdogsanctuary@yahoo.com.
King is not even one year old yet and he has been dumped at the shelter twice! The second time after he was home for only one day. The owner tried to give him a bathe. Clearly it did not turn out well as he found himself back at the shelter and now fearful. We took him into foster to remind him people can be nice. It did not take long for him to snuggle up to us. Luckily we found a wonderful person to adopt him and give him his forever home! We love happy endings!
Mr. Noodles is a neutered 7 year old gray and white manx. He is very scared of people, but learning to trust us. He likes other cats and he would love a home with other cats where his human is ok with him being scared and shy.
These three super sweet adorable, loving kittens are available now! They are super sweeet, playful, and loving. They are everything you want in a cat! They have been fixed, chipped and vaccinated. They were born approximately September 25, 2022. Rock is a male and the other two are females. Their mom was unfortunately killed by a dog. A good Samaritan saved the kittens and is fostering for us.
Scissors has been adopted but the other two are still waiting. They are the nicest, sweetest, friendliest kittens!
Meet Conan O'Brian. Conan was once someone's cat. He is super friendly and sweet, so we can only imagine he came from a loving home. However, he was found by a Good Samaritan under her car. He was clearly injured and was unable to walk. She took him to her local vet where x-rays showed a dislocated hip. His other hind leg was degloved. He wasn't going anywhere on his own. Luckily, he was microchipped. However, when the veterinarian called the owner and told him what happened to the cat; they didn't want him. The good Samaritan was forced to take him to the local shelter. Shelters these days are full beyond capacity. Without enough cages and staff, this cat was doomed to die in the shelter. Until we came along! We quickly saved him and took him to our veterinarian to get him the help he needs. Our estimated cost for surgery is over $2,400. yikes! thankfully he's a candidate for the star program, and the city of Los Angeles is going to pay for a portion of the surgery. We can still use help paying for the remainder of the surgery and extra medical expenses, such as bandages that need changing every day for over a month and medicine. He is now healed and ready for his forever home. he is a great cat! He is friendly, affectionate, and gets along with other cats!
We saw a post on facebook about a sick cat who was left in the streets. No owner came forward after weeks of searching. The people who found her wanted to help but did not know where to turn. We happened to have a space open and took her in. We thought she had URI, but it turns out she had cancer in her nose. She was the sweetest, most loving cat. She just wanted to be near you and lay with you...unless she was hungry. she barely weighed 4 pounds when we took her in. She died, November 18, 2022, after three months weighing nearly 5 pounds. She had a full heart and we know she was loved every moment she was in our life.
Someone please adopt these two kittens! They were brought into the shelter as strays when they were 2 months old in June 2022. We have been fostering them since then as they are very fearful. We can pet and pick them up, but they will never be super friendly cats. They still deserve a home! They get passed up every time because they are not cuddly. Someone must want toe SAVE a life and just have company in their home! They do like the company of other cats!

Tomas was a stray cat that was brought into the shelter on May 20, 2022. He could not be handled and was quite stressed. Even in foster, it took almost two months for Tomas to come around. Finally! He is enjoying rubs and attention. He will need a cat savvy person to continue his road to trusting and loving humans. But it will be worth it! He is a gorgeous 1.5-year-old long haired Russian Blue. He is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and ready to go. Come meet him at his foster home and fall in love today

Simon is a three-year-old, neutered love bug. He was brought in as stray on June 18, 2022. At first, he accepted attention, but time in the cage was not good for him. He became grumpy and unsocial. As soon as he was in foster, he turned into his true self: a love bug who loves to do roly-polies, play and sit on your lap! While he was a tom, you would never know he came from the streets. He just wants to be in your lap and in your business. He gets along with other cats. He is desperate for a home of his own.

She has been spayed and is now fine. She has nipped at us once or twice when we tried to move her when she didn't want to be moved. But otherwise, she is very loving and sweet. She would do best in an adult only home, may be friendly with another nice cat. Amazing photo courtesy of www.animaliatichuphoto.com
These scared kittens were abandoned by their mom out in the cold. We took them in, loved them, cared for them and found them a wonderful home together!
Thankfully, when a cat does not do well at the shelter they Call Susan to foster instead of euthanizing them. She and Paul work their magic socializing these cats. Fernando was easy. he was just scared. he is a 5 year old cat that came from a hording situation where he was never socialized. Now, he has a wonderful family to love him and he loves them right back!
These two little kittens nearly died. Platinum had pneumonia and the shelter was going to euthanize him if we didn't take him. We nearly lost him, but due to our quick actions and non-stop care, he survived! His brother, Oynx, only had a URI, but it was quite bad and took a long time to get him better. The two were adopted out together by a wonderful family.
Greta Garbo was brought to our sanctuary with 3 kittens. She was left in a crate in the sun to die with her kittens. A good Samaritan asked the owner if she could take the kittens, and the homeowner said yes. thankfully! Since the shelter will not intake kittens with a mom, they ended up here. Greta is nearly a kitten herself. She is les than two years of age. She is shy, but getting more friendly every day. She loves to do mashed potato and purr when you pet her! We can't wait to get her into her forever home!
Bill and Ted were born July 9, 2020 in a feral cat community in a housing division that wanted to help. These two and their sister ( already adopted) were brought to Golden Years Dog Sanctuary to be adopted. They have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. They are ready for their excellent adventure! Ted is very loving and cuddly. Bill is still shy but will play with you, and his brother, all day. While we would love for them to be adopted together, as long as they go to homes with other cats, they can be adopted separately.
These adorable, playful 2 month old kittens are ready for adoption. These boys are amazing and love to play together. We would love to adopt the boys out together. They have a sister, but she is already spoken for.
These lovable kittens will be available for adoption in July 2021. You can contact susan at 818-636-1522 to meet them today. Adoption is through the Castaic ACC
This amazing lovable cat was found in our hay barn. We fed him for months before we finally brought him inside. We were surprised at how loving, playful, and sweet he is. he gets along with other cats and will be a wonderful pet for someone.
Thin Mint is an approximately four year old female short haired cat. She originally came into foster with kittens. Her kittens were adopted , as she was. Her owner is leaving the state and needs to rehome her asap. She gets along great with other cats, is very loving and playful. She will make someone very happy!
Snow is a very sweet six year old female, spayed, short haired cat in foster from Agoura Animal Care Center. She was brought to the shelter as an owner surrender. She was very frightened at the shelter and was placed in foster. She gets along with other cats but would also not mind being the only cat. She can not remain in foster indefinitely, she needs to be adopted asap!
Katie is the biggest love bug! She is a 13 year young black long haired female cat that was owner surrendered at the shelter on December 28, 2019. She is scared of most cats, so would do best as an only cat. She loves attention and is the best lap and couch cat!
Fuzzy is a 12 year old owner surrender female cat. She is quite the character! According to her owner, she liked to hang out with her, but was not keen on being petted and picked up. We play with her every day; she is learning that being petted is nice, and she gets treats! She did not do well at the shelter, so we are fostering her, but need to get her a home asap!
Laurel is a young ( maybe two years old) scared female tabby. She was brought to the castaic animal care center as a stray. She is learning to accept humans. Since she has had little human interaction before coming to the shelter, the process is slow. But, she doesn't have that much time to find her forever home! She would make a great barn cat! Let's save her! we can't save another stray until she is homed!
Hardy is also a young ( maybe two years old) scared female tabby. She was brought to the castaic animal care center as a stray on the same day as Laurel, not necessarily related. We can pet and hold Hardy, but she is still fearful. In time, she may make a great house cat (and she can be a barn cat too!)! The longer it takes us to find homes for the cats we have in foster, the fewer cats we can save. Help us save these cats today!
George is a 14 year old owner surrender! He was brought into the shelter in November with his sister, Katie. She is still at the shelter, also looking for her forever home. George is quite shy, but a very sweet cat. He deserves a loving home to spend the rest of his days. he is healthy, neutered, vaccinated and ready to be adopted today!
Laverne came into the shelter as a stray on 11-17-18. She is a female of unknown age. She is now friendly and loving. She loves to be held and purrs. She can be an indoor or outdoor pet, and will do best with another friendly cat.
Shirley came into the shelter on 11-21-18 as a stray. Her age is unknown. She is still scared, but we are working with her every day. We can pet her, and she tolerates us holding her. She would make a great barn or outdoor cat. In time, she may be loving house pet as well. She would also benefit from being adopted with another cat. We can only foster for a short period of time, so we have to encourage their adoption even if they are still scared.
Dakota is a female calico cat of unknown age that came into the shelter on 12-9-18. She is most likely related to Shirley and Cali. She loves being friends with Laverne. Dakota lets us pet her and pick her up. She will still occasionally first hiss, but puts her guard down immediately as she knows we will never hurt her. She will take a gentle person to keep bringing her out of her shell. She can be an indoor-outdoor or barn cat. She would love to be adopted with laverne or another cat.
This sister and brother pair are only 18 months old. They were owner surrendered from a hoarding situation. While a little scared, they are very loving and sweet. Pretty boy was adopted and now has two dog brothers/ Splatter was in love with Freckles; they were adopted together.
This cat cracks us up! Four year old owner surrender. Was a brat at the shelter; was awesome in foster! She found a great home.
Betty Boop came to the shelter as a stray on September 28, 2018 with a litter of kittens. She was in foster care while her kittens matured. The kittens have since been fixed and are ready for adoption. Betty, on the other hand, was still scared and would not allow anyone to hold her. So back into foster she went. She is just over one year old. We have only had her in foster for a week and we can already pet her. We only have a limited time to foster her, so we need to find her a home with someone willing to work with her asap. She could be an indoor-outdoor cat; however, white cats are easy targets for owls and coyotes. So it will be imperative that she be indoors at night.
Splinter (A5245223) is an approximately nine month old gray male cat. He came into the shelter as a stray on December 20, 2018. He was scared and hissed. He was put into foster because he has been at the shelter too long. He needs out now! We can pet him and pick him up, but he still needs a quiet, patient person to love him. He can be an indoor or outdoor cat!
Jolson (A5243896), a black, male older cat ( at least 7) plays on your heart strings. He is kind, loving, and very scared. Who knows what terrible things were done to him. He is very afraid, but slowly coming out of his shell. We can pet him, and he will let us hold him, but he is scared and runs back to his bed. He needs a kind, patient soul to help him see that life and love can be beautiful.
Maximus (A5246790) is a neutered 3 year old tabby that came to the shelter as a stray on new year’s eve. He was hoping 2019 would bring him a friendly forever home. He was quite grumpy at the shelter, so we are fostering him. He is a love, with an opinion. Probably not a cat for young children, but certainly for anyone who wants a big gorgeous cat in their house
Freckles was one of many cats trapped at a hoarding situation along with his offspring. He was an outdoor cat and could be again. However, he is liking being petted, being held and most of all being hand fed sardines! He just needs a loving home! He is at least one year old and will be neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated before being adopted.
These three kittens were all from a hoarding situation. They were not handled before being fostered. Thankfully, Castaic Animal Care Center allows us to foster these fearful cats and find them forever homes
Who doesn't love a Russian Blue? Blue is approximately one year old. She came into the shelter as a stray on January 29, 2019. She was very scared and shy, but not aggressive Learning to trust, she is fine with us petting her and picking her up. She would do best in a home with another cat who can teach her how to be a better house cat! But, any home allows us to save another!
Olaf is a four year old altered male cat who was dumped by his owners at the shelter on May 11, 2019. He is upset about being left behind. He is in foster because he is having a tough time adjusting to a cage. He is quite a sweet cat and deserves a loving forever home.
Splenda came to the shelter on April 25, 2019 with a litter of six week old kittens. She didn't want to be separated from her kittens and kept trying to escape from her cage so she was put into foster. Her kittens were adopted and she has been spayed and returned to the shelter. She is a super sweet, playful, young cat deserving a great life!
It says on her kennel card, this twelve year old, incredibly friendly cat was a stray. More likely her owners didn't know what to do with her and put her out on the street. At the shelter, she had difficulty moving and kept peeing outside her box, so we took her into foster to help. Two visits to the chiropractor helped the inflammation in her spine. Now she jumps up and down off the bed! Her blood work showed she has an elevated kidney level, but NO signs of kidney disease. A big high walled litter box keeps her from peeing outside the box. This twelve year old cat is a doll! She deserves better than being dumped at the shelter!
Felix (A5266170) is a 5 month old, female, kitten. She, and her sister, were born in a house and then not handled for the first four months of their life. Needless to say, she didn't understand love and attention. Now she yearns for it! She rubs against us, does mashed potatoes, plays... She is a doll! While she now trusts us, it will take time for her to trust and love a new person. But, she is so worth it! She will need patient humans to take their time to win her trust and love.
Oscar is a 5 month old, female, kitten. She, and her sister, were born in a house and then not handled for the first four months of their life. Needless to say, she didn't understand love and attention. Now she yearns for it! While she now trusts us, it will take time for her to trust and love a new person. But, she is so worth it! She will need patient humans to take their time to win her trust and love.
