Caron is a little pink-nosed cuddle bug of a sweetheart who loves to give kisses; nose to nose kisses and ear nibbles being her specialty. Her coat is as soft as plushy velvet and, lucky for you, she loves to be held. Although she enjoys cuddling up with her brother and sister, Cashel and Ashling, her […]
Cats Available for Adoption
Lady Meow Meow, is really a Queen. She’s very vocal and quite a silly kitty. She is a “tree dweller” as Jackson Galaxy calls it, meaning she likes to hang out in high places. She has a small stature for an adult kitty so she looks like a furrever kitten. She’s quite a huntress, and […]

Meet Niñita! She’s a sweet, petite little panther whose family was originally rescued back in July of 2014. She was just a tiny baby at the time. She was raised in foster care adopted while still a kitten but then, four years later, we received a call from a shelter in Riverside. Niñita, now 4 […]
Vito is being fostered in Seattle, WA. Are you in need of a tough, independent guy who’s misunderstood? Meet Vito! Our resident gangster likes to throw his weight around, but if you’ve got food you’ll be the top boss. Vito would be best as an only cat for an experienced, adult caregiver (sorry, no children). […]
Who We Are
Formed in December, 2011, Kitty Devore Rescue is an all-volunteer Southern California area nonprofit charity and 501(c)(3) foster-based rescue group whose sole mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the cats admitted to Devore Animal Shelter in San Bernardino, CA, as well as cats who are within Devore Shelter’s jurisdiction and who are at risk of being surrendered there.
When we started, only an average of 8 to 10 cats out of every 100 admitted made it out of Devore Animal Shelter alive. Now, over 7 years later and thanks to our efforts, the efforts of our rescue partners and other non-affiliated rescue groups who joined the mission, the save rate for cats admitted to Devore is approximately 90%.
Most Kitty Devore Rescue members have full time jobs, families, homes to manage and other life endeavors that pull at us constantly and yet, every day, we still find the time to devote ourselves to working out rescue plans to save these kitties – because there’s not a day that goes by that another cat – and often several – is admitted to the shelter. No member of the team is paid a single penny. All our fundraising goes directly to the cats we save. It’s not easy work. Every day is a challenge to save these kitties. But for each Kitty Devore Rescue member, it’s truly a labor of love, determination and, for many of us, a vocation.
We do not have a facility. All the cats taken into Kitty Devore Rescue’s foster care program reside in the homes of our foster guardian members located in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties as well as Seattle, WA, until they are adopted. The number of foster homes is limited as there are always more animals in need than there are people willing to help them. We do our best with what we have and have to give. Join us!
We are not Animal Control and are unable to visit homes to round up or trap stray cats.
