Kitten Rescue was founded in the spring of 1997 and has grown to be one of the largest and most respected animal welfare groups in Los Angeles. We are a non-profit, volunteer-run organization devoted to finding loving new homes for unwanted, homeless cats and kittens. Kitten Rescue volunteers place over 1,000 cats and kittens into homes every year. Since we began, we have rescued and placed over 17,000 cats (and counting!) into loving homes.



Kitten Rescue at the LA Marathon

Join Kitten Rescue in the 2019 LA Marathon

It’s that time of year again! Registration is officially open for the 2019 LA Marathon!


The LA Marathon is Kitten Rescue’s largest fundraiser of the year. It plays an essential role in allowing us to continue saving homeless cats and kittens. Last year, our 74 runners raised a record-breaking $100,000, therefore allowing us to save hundreds of animals in need.


The 2019 LA Marathon includes three separate races. Team members can sign up for the full marathon, a half marathon, or there’s even an easy 5K you can walk.


Whichever race you choose, you’ll be doing an amazing thing on behalf of animals in need. You’ll also be joining a community of supportive friends and compassionate animal lovers working together to achieve a common goal… so sign up today to run/walk with Team Kitten Rescue!

The Kitten Care Handbook

Have you found abandoned, feral or orphaned kittens and are not sure what to do? Should you take them in? And if you rescue them, what do you do next? Never fear… we have all the answers in our Kitten Care Handbook!


Our Kitten Care Handbook is your expert online source for everything you need to know if you wish to rescue and raise orphaned kittens. We also include tips for people who have recently adopted a new kitten or cat and want to make sure everything goes smoothly.


From the immediate steps and first aid you’ll need to provide, to what supplies you will gather, to emergency kitten formula recipes, to getting and keeping kittens healthy — we cover it all! We even detail the care for them as they grow.


Because if there’s one thing that Kitten Rescue knows… it’s how to rescue and care for kittens!

Watch Kittens at the KR Sanctuary LIVE on our Kitten Cam!

Need your fix? Check out our Kitten Cam! We have an entire room at the KR Sanctuary dedicated to nursing moms with litters of kittens. When we don’t happen to have a mom with a litter, we use this area as a romper room for some of our kittens waiting to be adopted.


All of the budding young stars you see on this live feed are looking for homes, including Mom! If you fall in love, don’t hesitate — click below and get an adoption application in to us pronto!
