WHO WE ARE...
Southern Counties Rescue is a 100% volunteer non-profit rescue group with no paid staff.
As well as the cats we have rescued, we are currently posting cats needing rehoming by private parties. There is information in the Pet Notes on how to contact these private parties
We foster the cats in our homes with our family and our own pets so we get to know their personalities.
We rescue cats from Shelters when they are out of time, from backyards where they are born sometimes with feral moms and from the streets where they been abandoned.
In Southern California shelters are often full, including moms with babies, they have only 3-5 days to be adopted before they are euthanized when the shelter is overcrowded. Please, NEVER abandon a pet to a City or County Animal Shelter.
HOW YOU CAN HELP...
We need your donations, we need Volunteer to do many things and we need loving Foster homes for the cats.
Without your donations we couldn't rescue these
cats. Once a cat comes into our rescue we have it examined at the vet and then it goes to a foster home where it lives with the family, not in a cage, until adopted. Last year we were able to rescue and place over 100 cats & kittens from LA, Orange & Imperial Counties.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so donations are tax deductible. Please use link above or mail a check to: PO Box 1399, Brawley, CA 92227.
WE NEED FOSTERS
Without fosters we can't save lives, we do not have a Shelter so only if we have people willing to share their home with a cat family, orphaned kittens or a cat in need can we save them. Fostering is fun and rewarding. It is a way to expose your family to caring for a group of kittens WITHOUT having to keep them all. Everyone that fosters say they get more back than they give in love and laughs.
If you want to know more about fostering in order to save the life of a
shelter cat or kitten e-mail
If you can't foster but want to
help by paying the bail-out fees, e-mail Southern Counties Rescue,
Save-A-Shelter-Cat or go to donation link listed above.
There is a third way you can help and that is to Volunteer doing services that help us promote adoptions and raise funds for vet bills. It can mean taking Adoption Event Posters to vets, or making cat toys to sell on the Internet. There are a 1000s ways you can help! Please email our Volunteer Coordinator to learn move about volunteering with us or please click
SCR Volunteer Form to complete a form.
It takes a community to rescue animals, please be part of that community by donating money or time. Thank you.
SO ARE YOU NOW READY TO ADOPT?
You can complete the Adoption Application by clicking the Application link above or by clicking the e-mail link for the foster home in each pet's "Pet Notes." Don't hesitate to ask the foster lots of questions about the personalities of their foster kitties. That is one of the advantages of fostering cats in a home environment rather than cages, they behave like cats!
Our adoption fee is a minimum donation of $135-$175 for kittens and cats. This does not cover our costs but it does include a vet exam, spay/neuter, vaccines, testing for FeLV/FIV, microchip ID, deworming, and flea treatment (if necessary).
We also discount the second kitty when you adopt a pair (if you really need us too.).
Adoption fees may vary for pets in courtesy listings posted on the website for individual rescuers and shelters.
NOT READY TO ADOPT, HOW ABOUT SPONSORING?
SPONSOR, SPONSOR, SPONSOR! Sponsor a homeless pet at Southern Counties Rescue.
For $25 or more, you can make life pretty grand for a kitty. You can sponsor as a gift too. If it's a gift we will send your gift-recipient an email letting them know a homeless pet has been sponsored in their honor. They will be sent photos and the story about the animal you chose for them. You can sponsor as many as you like, for others and for yourself! Each pet you choose will benefit from the extra loving care they will receive as your Sponsored Pet and these good feelings will be shared with your gift-recipient.
"Here are a few homeless pets who would love to share their Story with you..."
A big, orange Maine Coon mix with a delightful half tail. He’s a love bug, wants to keep you company but Calvin has one problem, he suffers from separation anxiety and when left alone by his person he does inappropriate things. He’s a good choice to share your love of animals! So please read more about him and sponsor CALVIN
Spot is one of those cats that never got quite sociable enough for someone to want to adopt. He might have been happy outdoors but he was living in an area where coyotes were dominant and it wasn't safe for a cat to be outside. So please read more about him and sponsor SPOT!
Maggie is 11 years old. She hasn't spent all of these years with us, no she had her own home for awhile.We rescued Maggie when she was one year old, a super friendly cat at a high kill Los Angeles Shelter. in 2014 a kind feral cat feeder saw her at a colony she managed, she was skinny and dirty but still the same sweet personality. She picked her up and took her to her vet where she was scanned for a microchip. Her chip got her back to us where she is now safe again. Please read more about her and sponsor MAGGIE
There are many more animals in our foster homes who need sponsors. These are cats with behavioral or health issues making them unadoptable except to a very "special" home. By supporting one, you’ll make your gift-recipient's Day special in addition to making it better for these "Special" pets that are having a hard time finding a permanent home. This kind of Caring will brighten the life of this kitty and make it easier on our small rescue to continue rescuing other animals and finding them homes.
Thank you for supporting the animals of Southern Counties Rescue until the find their forever home.
