Thank you for your interest in becoming a Rescue Partner with the Kitty Devore Rescue Network in our ongoing mission to save the cats admitted to Devore Shelter in San Bernardino, California.
Upon receipt of your completed application, it will be reviewed and you will be notified of approval within 5 days of submission.
If approved, you will be invited onto the Kitty Devore closed Facebook group list and introduced to the entire KD team. The Kitty Devore Network group list is comprised of the two KD administrators – Renée and Lauren, the KD Board of Officers, heads of rescue representing each rescue partner rescue group we work in tandem with, foster guardians (both temporary and long term), pullers, transporters and general members who help out in various ways.
Acceptance of the invitation to the network is not mandatory – but it does make coordination much easier for you as well as the entire team. As a member of the network, you will have access to assistance with coordinating local veterinary boarding if needed, temporary foster parents, local and some longer distance transporters, etc.
The KD Network group is where we conduct our rescue effort coordination and KD business. Day to day, we ride the ups and downs of rescue work together so there is a strong sense of cohesion as we all share a common mission and purpose. However, we do understand that each rescue group does have much of their own business to attend to and that this can often be quite a lot of work – and so, for this reason, it is not required that rescue partners be members of KD Network in the actual network group as it could prove to be distracting to their own rescue group endeavors… but we DO welcome rescue partners onto the network and are always happy to have them there with us.
If you choose not to participate in our network group, you will be directed to our Primary Rescue Coordinator as you contact person regarding animals at Devore you’re interested in taking into your rescue’s care. Our job will be to coordinate pulling the animal from the shelter. When outside of the network group, it will be yours to coordinate someone to meet our puller, boarding if needed, foster parents, transports, etc.
Please read each item in the rescue agreement carefully before initialing. As a KD rescue partner, you will be expected to honor and adhere to each item of the agreement and, likewise, know that we will also honor this agreement and our commitment to you.
You may also request an adoption application to be e-mailed to you if you prefer not to complete the online application.
