Guest Biography

Kitten Rescue was founded in the spring of 1997 and has grown to become one of the largest and most respected animal welfare groups in Los Angeles. We are a non-profit, totally volunteer run organization devoted to finding loving new homes for unwanted cats and kittens. Kitten Rescue volunteers place approximately 1,000 cats and kittens into new homes every year. Since its inception, Kitten Rescue has rescued and placed over 10,000 cats into loving homes.

In March 2006, Kitten Rescue realized one of its long-standing dreams when it acquired its very own private, no-kill shelter in Los Angeles. The Kitten Rescue Sanctuary is a shelter and boarding facility that can house up to 150 cats. The Sanctuary has a full-time staff as well as numerous volunteers who provide care, love and socialization for the cats housed there. Ciela was rescued from the streets with her 3 siblings and adopted into loving homes.

The majority of Kitten Rescue's animals live in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted. Our volunteers care for orphaned or abandoned kittens that need to be bottle fed, moms with litters, cats that need socialization and sick and injured animals. Kitten Rescue takes care of all of its rescued cats' medical needs, and prior to adoption, every cat is spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped.

We also offer education and assistance to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet ownership, care of kittens and cats, the importance of spaying and neutering, and the proper maintenance and care of feral cat colonies. During "kitten season", volunteers teach bottle feeding classes for people who want to care for unweaned kittens. Kitten Rescue also distributes City of Los Angeles spay/neuter coupons to members of the public.

Kitten Rescue's goal is to help Los Angeles become a no-kill city.
