Platina is a petite little kitty who alternates between being a crabby old lady (sometimes) and an absolute lovebug (most of the time). She was rescued from Devore Shelter in January of 2017. She is estimated to be about 6 to 8 years old – so still young with many years ahead of her! As […]

Hello, I’m Pellman! I am a beautiful, if I do say so myself, black and white adult short hair. I love to cuddle, chin and behind the ear scratches, and to be by your side. I do have a condition called Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which means I have a slightly weakened immune system. But, […]
Hi, my name is Eryn and I am a super duper fun-loving little girl with so much personality. I was rescued with my sister, Erma, and my momma, Ertha, from this place called Devore Shelter. My momma, sister and I got really sick while we were there and this wonderful thing called a “rescue” pulled […]

Meet Zetty and Murphie!! These two are the best mother-daughter pair you’ll ever meet!! As their foster mom, I may be a bit biased, but I’ve spent a lot of time with a lot of kitties, and these two girls are some of the most consistently loving kitties I’ve ever met. Murph was literally born […]
Hi there! My name is Aspen! I’m a one year old kitty who was rescued from Devore Animal Shelter in March 2017. I was pregnant while I was there and very afraid for my future, so I was very grateful to be rescued by a foster. I ended up having my kittens only a few […]
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.
