Meet Sprout.  Sprout and his seven siblings came from a place in Manteca where someone was nice enough to care for the mothers but soon there were too many to manage and the sweet woman who cared for them realized it had become too much to handle. We spayed and neutered all of the adults and removed a total of three litters of kittens along with their moms! Sprout was the runt of the litter (hence his name) and wasn’t thriving and needed some extra TLC, it was touch and go at first but round the clock care and force-feeding saved his life. Just like a little seedling  with the warm sun on his back, the baby kitten began to grow and sprout.  The name sprout became the kitten. Sprout is a very loving kitten and gets along well with other cats as well as cat friendly dogs. His foster home has three large dogs so he is quite comfortable. He is his foster moms “pick of the litter” He loves playing with his siblings with interactive cat wands, and cuddling his absolute favorite thing to do is make biscuits and lots of them. He makes biscuits where ever he can! Sprout has been well rounded around dogs, cats and kids so he would make a great addition to almost any home!  He has several siblings if you are interested in adopting a pair, his siblings are Sparrow, Big E, and Roo. Sprout is incredibly ready to spread his little furry paws and tackle the world to find his forever family. He wants to be treasured and be a part of the family.  If you think Sprout sounds like a good fit for your family and you can cherish him and provide him with a safe indoor only life, please submit an application today on our website at 

All Second Chance Kitty cats are free-fed a quality dry food with low or no grain and are STRICTLY INDOOR ONLY. Studies have proven cats live longer, healthier lives and on average require less financial burdens at veterinary offices when they are kept indoor only. There are so many predators out there, both human and animal and it is sadly unsafe to let them roam unattended. 

All of our babes come altered, microchipped, vaccinated, rabies (if age appropriate), FeLV/FIV negative unless stated otherwise , dewormed, flea treated, litter box trained and full of love.  Our adoption fees are a minimum $150 donation.  Anything beyond $150 helps rescue another babe. 

Adoption isnt an impulsive decision, it must be thought out carefully. Owning a cat is a 15 to 20+ year commitment. Can we afford a cat? If were renting do they allow pets here? Is there a pet deposit? Can we afford the pet deposit? What if we get sick, what if the kitty becomes ill and has to see a veterinarian? Kitty requires routine check-ups, annual vaccines, quality food, litter and toys, can we afford this? These are all questions a responsible pet owner must ask themselves. If you can make this type of commitment please take a moment and visit our website at to submit an application.

Second Chance Kitty is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting cats, kittens and an occasional dog, escape a life of abandonment, abuse and neglect.
