Cats Available for Adoption
Jono was rescued from Devore Shelter by the Kitty Devore Rescue Team in March of 2018. The shelter estimated this handsome marmalade man to be about 3 years old and, once we got him out of the shelter and into the care of one of our amazing rescue veterinarians, they agreed. Jono is still a […]
Misha is a gentle calico beauty who has overcome some challenges in her life thus far. She found herself admitted to Devore shelter in Spring of 2018 when she was about 4 years old. She belonged to someone once and then, for whatever reason, they abandoned her when she needed them the most. You see, […]
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 […]
Bonjour! Meet Françoise!

Meet Nara! This sweet and spicy, tabby girl was rescued from Devore shelter in July when she was about 4.5 months old. She has gobs of energy, but not having other kittens to play with when she was really little meant that she didn’t quite learn “how to cat”…so when she was rescued, she really […]
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.
