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 May 2020, when it comes to our adoption process. For that reason, we have temporarily amended our adoption procedures.

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 8 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. Our fundraising goes directly toward helping the cats we take into our care. 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.
