Meet Chief! Chief was rescued from a high kill shelter and was in pretty bad shape, but with some love and attention from a vet, he is now the happy and handsome man you see in the photos. Chief is an older soul at heart, but is really only about 7 years old, so his […]
Cats Available for Adoption
Hi! My name is Rubie, but my foster family calls me Rubie Roo. I’m a very friendly girl and I love to eat, nap and play with my toys. But my favorite thing of all – I LOVE to be petted! There’s nothing better in the whole wide world. I was rescued from Devore Shelter […]
Glam was rescued from Big Bear Shelter, one of Devore Shelter’s substations, back in December of 2014. At the time of her rescue, this winsome tortie girl was estimated to be a year old. Lovely Glam has many opinions about the world and enjoys describing all the thoughts that run through her head. Granted, even […]
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 […]
Sarola is a hyperactive teener who loves to play with the boys! She thinks she’s bigger than she is but refuses to cry “uncle” when they get the better of her. She’s a true tomboy! She is very petite and a good talker. When she is separated from her “human” by a door she will […]
Suni was rescued from Devore Shelter in July of 2013 along with her two sisters and brother. Each kitten was taken into Kitty Devore foster care and found adoptive homes not long thereafter. What we thought was Suni’s forever dad adopted her in November of that same year but, sadly, almost 5 years later, he […]
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.
