KITTEN RESCUE’S SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM

The goal of Kitten Rescue’s Sponsorship Program is to raise money for Kitten Rescue by connecting some of our special needs cats with cat lovers like you! In the Kitten Rescue Sponsorship Program, donors sponsor a cat to help Kitten Rescue cover the costs of caring for these cats in their foster home or at the Kitten Rescue Sanctuary.

Select one or more cats to sponsor for one year,  or request that a Kitten Rescue volunteer assign you a cat for sponsorship. Payment can be made through monthly installments of $15, or a one-time donation of $180.  

Once your sponsorship is processed, Kitten Rescue will mail you a Certificate of Sponsorship with a picture and short biography of the sponsored cat. You will also be provided bi-annual updates on your sponsored cats.


Someone bound and gagged me with duct tape and left me in a box in a parking lot of the Baldwin Park animal shelter. The duct tape covered my mouth and nose, so I almost suffocated to death. When they found me, I was so scared and confused and didn't know who to trust. I am now rehabilitating in a quiet foster home. I am making progress everyday, but I am still not sure if I can trust anyone other than my foster mom. Please follow my progress on my Facebook page 

When I was found in a parking lot in the San Fernando Valley, I was in pretty bad shape. My test came back positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and I had severe stomatitis and allergies that made my skin itchy and my fur patchy. All my teeth were pulled out, but my gums don't hurt anymore and I can eat. We're still working to get my skin condition fully under control.

I was rescued from a terrible hoarding situation - this couple kept me and 45 other cats living in carriers stacked on top of each other in a filthy abandoned apartment.  I am leukemia positive so I live in a special section of the sanctuary with other leukemia-positive cats.  For all of my difficult past, I'm very healthy and friendly. Sadly, it's very hard for cats with my condition to find a home.

I've been dealing with stomatitis (severe gum inflammation) as long as I can remember.  This condition is very painful and makes it hard for me to eat. I am also very shy when there's a lot of people or a lot of cats around me so I prefer to stay in my room.  But I love getting one on one attention from you.


I was trapped near Echo Park and treated at Fix Nation before finding my way to Kitten Rescue.  I was very afraid of people, but ever since coming to the Sanctuary, I am starting to see that people are not so bad.  I am only 2 years old, but I have a heart condition called Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. .  I need X-rays, ultrasounds, and extensive exams every few months to keep a close eye on my heart. I am on heart medication and on a special diet for urinary crystals.

My real name is John Patrick. I traveled far - from being abandoned in a warehouse, to someone's garage, to a foster home, and eventually here at the sanctuary.  So I can't help being shy, and therefore listed on the "hard to adopt" category.  I developed a polyp in one ear and although it's been treated, my head tilts as a result.

I was found as a stray in an underpass under a freeway.  my new foster mom took me to the vet and found out that I had squamous cell carcinoma - thats nonmelanoma skin cancer. Unfortunately, it was at the base of my ear, so I had to have my left ear removed. Some people may think I look funny, but my foster mom tells me that beauty is from within. I hope you will feel the same and consider sponsoring me so that Kitten Rescue can help me and other cats like me get the help and care they need.

When I was rescued off the streets of Long Beach, I was severely malnourished and unable to walk due to extremely malformed hind legs. Today, I go to physical therapy to increase muscle in my back legs and learn to prevent injuries to my front legs. Despite my special needs, I'm a little punk full of energy and have a gift for making friends with everyone. Please follow my progress on my Facebook page 

My back legs work funny and I wear a diaper, but I am proof that a kind heart and a determined soul can survive pretty much anything. I was severely injured when I was just a few weeks old For weeks, I could only drag myself around the gravel and there was nothing to eat but dirt. Back then my back legs didn’t work at all, but with the physical therapy i am receiving, I am slowly regaining functionality. I am a happy, cuddly boy, and I love to play and get petted!

Sponsor a bonded pair together


We were adopted out as kittens but returned several years later for no fault of our own. We are the perfect gentle giants that loves to lounge with you. When we were returned, we were overweight, depressed and didn't want to do anything - not even eat. We developed fatty liver. With the care we received from the staff at the sanctuary we recovered nicely.


After 7 years, our adoptive mom decided to move out of state and leave us behind. She had broken the contract with Kitten Rescue and surgically removed our claws which was really traumatic and painful. We also had bladder issue which was left untreated and resulted in bloody urine. At the Sanctuary we were put on a special diet to resolve this issue and they have been taking good care of us. We hope that one day someone will overlook our special needs and take us home - together.
