Did you know that a great many black kitties are actually Siamese mixes? Kalea may have a black colored coat, but she has so many of the Siamese traits! Originally rescued from Devore Shelter in July of 2018 and estimated to be 5 years old at the time of her rescue, this girl is so […]
Cats Available for Adoption
Nascha was rescued from Devore Shelter in June of 2018. Our vets estimate his age to be between 2 to 3 years old. His name is a Navajo and means “owl”. It’s not hard to understand why his foster parents settled on that name. He has amazing, captivating owl-like eyes and a unique beauty all […]
Meet Kringle! He is a slim, shy, 4 year old kitty who needs a very patient person that understands cat behavior and is willing to give Kringle all the space and time he needs to feel safe. Kringle came to me in March of 2016; by September 2016, he finally started coming out of hiding […]
I don’t like to talk about myself, because I’m a very shy, gentle guy. I’ve never scratched, I don’t bite, and I rarely talk. Your friends may never see me, since I like to spend time with my own humans. A calm quiet home without too much activity would be ideal, hopefully with my sister […]
Lucille and her twin sister, May West, are best buddies and have been since they were babies back in 2016. For that reason, we know they would be happiest if they were adopted together. We consider them a bonded pair. Where one goes, the other must follow. Both girls are very people-friendly. They love attention […]
“Can I be your snuggle buddy?” Etienne, whose name translates to Stephen and “crown” in French, goes by the nickname “Bunny”. Why? Because this regal little lady has a coat that is bunny soft. At the time of her rescue from Devore Shelter in August of 2014, she was estimated to be 1 year old […]
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.
