Cats Available for Adoption
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, […]
As a 4 month old kitten, Georgette found herself admitted to Devore Shelter back in December of 2014. She was rescued by the Kitty Devore Rescue team December rolled over to January, 2015. She was placed in a wonderful foster home with an amazing foster mom and, within just a few months, Georgette found her […]
Lady Meow Meow, is really a Queen. She’s very vocal and quite a silly kitty. She is a “tree dweller” as Jackson Galaxy calls it, meaning she likes to hang out in high places. She has a small stature for an adult kitty so she looks like a furrever kitten. She’s quite a huntress, and […]
Mojave is possibly the raddest cat you will ever meet. He doesn’t scratch furniture, has perfect litter box manners and only meows when he gets himself locked in a bedroom – however, his meows are as if he’s yelling orders because … well, he’s way more rad than you are. He appears to be shy […]
White kitties don’t pass through Devore Shelter often. In fact, they’re a bit of a rarity in general – even more elusive than the rare female orange tabbies. So when 2 year old Lumina found herself in the shelter in November 2018, we knew she was a precious little soul who needed to be saved. […]
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.
