Shirla and her two boys, Shadd and Shaydon, were admitted to Devore Shelter in June of 2018. She was estimated to be 3 years old at the time. By a strange bureaucratic twist of fate, the little family was later transferred to Riverside Shelter in early July. Although the KD Team rescues exclusively from Devore […]
Cats Available for Adoption
Handsome Malloy was rescued from Devore Shelter by the Kitty Devore Rescue team in November of 2018. The shelter estimated him to be in the area of 2 years old at that time. He won over the hearts of everyone he met but, sadly, was not adopted so we made sure this friendly dude got […]
Hi I’m Maura! I was a young mom who was admitted to Devore Shelter with my four little boys before Kitty Devore Rescue stepped in to save our lives. We were all so sick at the time of our rescue. I worried my boys and I weren’t going to be well enough to experience all […]
Sloane and her four kittens had a rough start. They found themselves on death row extremely sick and malnourished; to the point most of their hair had fallen out and you could count every bone in Momma Sloane’s body. She gave everything she had to her four kittens to keep them alive and hoped help […]
Are you looking for a unique and outgoing kitty? Pouncival is a dashing boy with the face of an oriental shorthair and the tail of a bobcat. He is long and slender with long hind legs. He is an avid climber and often hangs out at the top of the cat tree. He loves lengthy […]
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 […]
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.
