Who We Are
Kitty Devore Rescue was formed in December 2011 as an all-volunteer Southern California area nonprofit charity and 501(c)(3) foster-based rescue group. Rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming the cats and kittens admitted to Devore Animal Shelter in San Bernardino, CA, and cats within Devore Shelter’s jurisdiction at risk of surrender to the shelter endures as our sole mission.
Only an average of 8 to 10 cats out of every 100 admitted to Devore Animal Shelter made it out alive when we began our mission. Now, over a decade 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 work full-time jobs, care for families, manage homes, attend school as students, and pursue other life endeavors. These responsibilities pull at us constantly, and yet, every day, we devote time and energy to constructing rescue plans to save these kitties. We direct all adoption and donation funding to our rescue and rehabilitation efforts. Not a day passes that another cat, and often several, find themselves admitted to the shelter. Rescue work poses numerous challenges, but we consider ourselves up to the task on behalf of the fantastic feline lives saved. Our work endures as a labor of love, determination, and, for many Kitty Devore Rescue members, 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 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 people are willing to help them. We do our best with what we have and have to give. Join us!
We are not Animal Control and cannot visit homes to round up or trap stray cats.
