Lapcats Logo

Looking for a lapcat?  Our cats are shelter cats who have been loved by someone at some time in their lives. Circumstances, some of which we will never know or understand, have brought them to the Sacramento County Shelter where our LAPCATS program developed. We are committed to finding forever homes for adult cats (and occasional kittens) and strive to find the best match for both humans and the cats we save.  You can find us inside PetSmart at 8215 Laguna Blvd., Elk Grove, California. We’re LAPCATS (Laguna Adoption Program County Animals TEAM Sacramento).  LAPCATS is staffed and managed by Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation (SCACR) volunteers with help from TEAM (Teaching Everyone that Animals Matter, the local nonprofit associated with the shelter).  
Our cats are screened thoroughly for personality, temperament and health while in the shelter, and in sponsor care.  The sponsor family evaluates the cats for “pet ability” and how the cats react to normal day-to-day situations with other people and pets. 
Prior to their arrival at our adoption center, our cats are all spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, treated for fleas/ticks, de-wormed, vaccinated, and have been tested for FELV/FIV.  
Are you ready for a cat?  Animals can add tremendous joy and companionship to our lives, but they are not perfect, and involve responsibility and commitment.
