Baur worries that with property values going up, the county and city of Modesto – joint owners of the Finch Road facility – will want to raze the shelter and sell the land. She said she would rather see another animal group move in, and said she would leave hoses, nozzles, shade screens and other equipment if she knew that was the case.
We are a no kill cat/kitten shelter that spay/neuter all our animals.
This program is in partnership with the local veterinarian community of Stanislaus County.

There are too many stray cats in my neighborhood can you pick them up and take them? These cats are referred to as community cats. It is up to the neighborhood to help control the population. If you live in the jurisdiction of Stanislaus Animal Services (Modesto, Ceres, Hughson, Patterson, Waterford, or with a County address in an unincorporated area) Cats over 4 pounds can be taken to the shelter on Cornucopia Way in Modesto where if healthy will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and ear-tipped and returned to their native environment to live without reproducing. Residents in these areas are responsible for trapping and getting cats to the shelter to participate in this program.Wags and Whiskers Rescue held its annual open house Saturday, welcoming the public to tour the no-kill facility and take home a new pet. The nonprofit was founded in 2011 and rescues dogs and cats slated to be put down from shelters statewide. The volunteer group, which moved its headquarters to the old Stanislaus County animal shelter facility on Finch Road in Modesto two years ago, has more than 100 animals available for adoption.
