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.
Los Angeles struggles with an intensive and lengthy kitten season, stretching anywhere from February until November and peaking in June and July. With so many underage kittens flooding into the LA Shelters, rescue groups are hard-pressed to find safe accommodations for all these little lives. Foster parents are the heart, soul and lifeblood at Kitten Rescue. When you foster a kitten, you can make the largest impact and help us save the greatest number of lives.
Learn why our Fosters are so important to us and how you, too, can get started in this epic role!
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. It’s also great information 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!
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!
