Numbers behind the lives saved


CAT measures success in the purrs of the cats in our care.

We also measure success through improvements in our work for the cats, the number of lives saved in our community, and much more.

That is what CAT’s statistics show. The numbers behind the furry faces we all love.


To see how many cats found homes, how many kittens were fostered, how many felines were spayed/neutered, how many cats were fed through our food bank, and how many volunteers helped us save lives, review our latest annual report. You can also see statistics by year (click on the yearly links on the left of this web page).

Asilomar Reporting

As a participating shelter in the Asilomar Accords, CAT uses nationally recognized shelter statistic gathering and reporting methods. You can review our detailed annual statistics by clicking on the links to the left. (You might find it helpful to check out these definitions of Asilomar terminology.) The collection and publication of this data is sponsored by Maddie’s Fund

CAT collects and shares our shelter statistics as a founding member of the Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland (ASAP). You can find statistics from all ASAP partner shelter and for the coalition as a whole here.

Each adoption, donation, and other interaction with you and fellow cat lovers brings us closer to fulfilling our mission to save the lives of homeless, unwanted, sick, and injured cats and to work with our community to provide feline expertise and quality programs and services for people and cats. .
