WHO WE ARE...
We are volunteers with Southern Counties Rescue, a 100% volunteer non-profit rescue group with no paid staff. 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 Los Angeles & Orange County 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.
As well as the cats we have rescued, we are currently posting cats who are still in the animal shelter and have not been rescued by us, and cats needing rehoming by private parties. If the information in the Pet Notes gives phone and address information for the animal shelter PLEASE go to the shelter quickly to adopt. 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 and we need loving foster homes for the cats.
Without your donations we couldn't rescue these
cats. Once a cat gets out of the shelter 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 in LA, Orange, San Diego & Imperial County area.
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
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.
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.
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..."
CALVIN! 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 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!
KITTENSTIX Kittenstix, also know as Dimples is now 13 years old. She hasn't spent all of these years with us, no she had her own home for awhile. Dimples was rescued from a high kill shelter with her kittens 11 years ago. That same year she was adopted into her "forever" home. Unfortunately it wasn't forever due to circumstances beyond the adopters control, so Dimples, now known as Kittenstix came back to us. She wants to be an only kitten so it stresses her to be among so many. Please read more about her and sponsor KITTENSTIX!
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.
