Cats Available for Adoption
It was October of 2018 when then-2-year-old Thom-Thom found himself admitted to Devore Shelter. Bewildered, he had n idea how he’d wound up there and, even more concerning, how he was going to get himself out. After all, he was a handsome ginger kitty who had always been easy to get along with and never […]
Buffington was rescued from Devore Shelter in October of 2018. He’d patiently waited for his turn to be adopted and when that didn’t happen, we rescued him to ensure he had a second chance at life. Estimated to be around 4 years old at the time of his rescue, he’s no longer a high energy […]
Hi, I’m Sergei nice to make your acquaintance. I am a handsome 4 year old, neutered, white and black fluffy shorthair kitty. I was adopted as a kitten with my brother Fedorov, however, we were returned to our foster home over year later. Our adopter moved and felt he could no longer keep us safe […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, 6 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.
