Meet MARIA DELUCA
MARIA DELUCA (named after the series ROSWELL: NEW MEXICO) and her 4 (ISOBEL EVANS - LIZ ORTECHO - KYLE VALENTI - MICHAEL GUERIN) siblings were living in really bad area of Lawndale, California. The independent rescuer was asked to help get the local strays fixed and save the kittens. We were more than happy to help! These poor little guys were so malnourished, sick and scared.
So MARIA DELUCA has known the street life for a very short time. She has now been living a nice pampered life. As you can see in the pictures, she is loved and spoiled. MARIA DELUCA is very beautiful. She loves to be cuddled and petted. When you pick her up, she will start her little motor and purr very loud. Loves to cuddle with her siblings. She is the sassy one of her siblings. She does love to play!!
MARIA DELUCA is DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / CALICO MIX. She is about 8 months old and is good with cats and non- reactive to dogs. She has never been around young children.
MARIA DELUCA is currently at PETSMART in Murrieta, California off Madison Avenue.
OCTOBER 2022: With all the needed social distancing, we are still doing adoptions. VOLUNTEERS are the only ones allowed to let you meet the kitty. Not PETSMART employees.
Volunteers are usually at Petsmart between 9 - 10 am to 12 pm - 1 pm. Please note that it is totally up to the volunteers if they are comfortable with allowing you in the cattery. (COVID). Steps 1-5 of the ADOPTION PROCESS need to be done before we do OFFICIAL MEET & GREETS.

3. Submit Online Application

************************ NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS ***********************
Meet and greets will take place at the Petsmart location where the cat/kitten is currently located at.
The cats/kittens at a foster/rescue home, we will do meet and greets at any of the 3 Petsmart locations listed below.
in Murrieta, California off Madison Avenue
in Hemet, California off Florida Avenue
in Palm Desert, California off Monterey Avenue
The crazy rescue mama will drive kitties to their new home, once the adoption has been finalized. So gas donations always appreciated!
********** PLEASE NO CALLS. NO ONE IS AVAILABLE TO TAKE CALLS **********
If the CAT/KITTEN is still listed (meaning here or other websites) they are still available. It does not mean they don't have other pending applications or meet and greets.
Please note: Just because you fill out an application and are approved does not obligate you to adopt the cat/kitten. If he or she is not a fit...we have plenty of other cats / kittens available for adoption.
We are a SMALL rescue based out of Hemet, California. We are all volunteers that run the rescue. If we haven't reached out be patient.
MARIA DELUCA is ALREADY fully vetted.
The adoption fee of $200 covers:
FELV/FIV test (Negative/Negative)
Stronghold Flea Control
We are NOT a government FUNDED shelter and all our donations and adoption fees are for our rescued cats/kittens. So, we do not do DISCOUNTS.
If for some unfortunate reason you missed out on the kitten/cat you emailed about...I'm sure that we could help you with another rescue baby! Just ask!
If you have any questions not covered here, please feel free to email us:
