BabyG was only a month old when she and her mamma, Maybelline, were rescued from Devore Shelter by the KD team in December, 2016. Since she was so young, we’re sure she has no memory of anything but the comfort and love she’s found in the foster home she’s grown up in. This sleek little […]
Cats Available for Adoption
In September 2018, Momma Elinor found herself a single, unwed, hungry, and very pregnant young lady at Devore Shelter. Two days after her babies were born, we rescued Elinor and her little newborn family. They have been safe, well-fed, loved and well-cared for in their foster home ever since. Kairi is one of Elinor’s little […]
In early June 2018, an 8-week old kitten was brought to our in-store adoption center in the hope that we would take her into our care. She’d been found in a backyard, alone and hungry. Thankfully, one of our amazing volunteers was there cleaning kitty kennels that day and, although she tried to convince the […]
I don’t like to talk about myself, because I’m a very shy, gentle guy. I’ve never scratched, I don’t bite, and I rarely talk. Your friends may never see me, since I like to spend time with my own humans. A calm quiet home without too much activity would be ideal, hopefully with my sister […]
Meet Wellesley! This stunning little Bombay mix was rescued from Devore Shelter back in August of 2014 and, at the time, was estimated to be about 2 years old. Welles, as her foster mom calls her, was also pregnant and gave birth to six adorable kittens but it wasn’t until all her kids were adopted […]

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.
