“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 […]
ADOPTIONS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19
During this unusual time, people everywhere are taking precautions to safeguard their health, and the Kitty Devore Rescue team is no exception.
Yes, we are still operational! With the addition of new foster parents and rescue partner rescue groups joining our mission and our network, we’re still saving the kitties of Devore Shelter. However, in the interest of safety and precaution, we are observing the governmental social distancing guidelines through April 30th, 2020, when it comes to our adoption process. For that reason, we have temporarily amended our adoption procedures.

Cats Available for Adoption
Meet Nara! This sweet and spicy, tabby girl was rescued from Devore shelter in July of 2018 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”. Nara has made great […]

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 […]
Adoption Application Status: Farriday currently has 1 approved adoption application. Farriday was listed as a super senior at the shelter. However, their age guesstimate was mostly based on his horrible teeth. Because he’d been a stray and his mouth was in bad shape, he was thin and appeared frail and elderly. Despite his condition, Kitty Devore […]
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.
