2023 Put Your Best Paw Forward Walk-a-thon

Join us and support our efforts to spay and neuter more than 1,600 cats each year!

On Sunday, October 15, 2023 the Coalition For Community Cats (C4CC) will hold its 17th annual fundraising walk-a-thon – “Put Your Best Paw Forward!” – honoring the National Feral Cat Day.  This event is designed to create greater awareness of the thousands of abandoned community cats in the greater Sacramento area and to promote more responsible pet ownership in our neighborhoods and communities.

  • Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the 5K walk starts at 10 a.m.
  • Tickets for the event are available at

This event is our primary fundraiser.  The $35 registration fee per person covers the walk and an event t-shirt*. Children 12 and under walk for free. A silent auction will be held during the event. *T-shirts are available while supplies last.

C4CC is an all volunteer organization that assists people who spay and neuter abandoned and feral cats. C4CC provides year-round vouchers and sponsors a monthly spay/neuter clinic to help reduce the cat overpopulation in our community. Our voucher program and spay/neuter clinics are supported by many volunteers, resulting in the spay/neutering of more than 1,600 cats each year! Since each feline can have many litters, these spays and neuters prevent tens of thousands of additional births.

In addition to the vouchers and the clinics, Coalition for Community Cats is the 501(c)3 (non-profit) through which the community cat returns are done at both Sacramento County and Front Street shelters. This service enables hundreds of feral cats, formerly euthanized, to be returned to their home ground.

If you can not join us in person, please consider contributing to our virtual fundraiser instead.

On our donation page, we are now able to accept credit cards and PayPal donations as well as checks. Proceeds from all fundraising will continue to benefit the Coalition for Community Cats (C4CC) feral cat spay/neuter programs. All contributions are tax deductible.
