We had a great time and raised over $1300 for ongoing rescue efforts. But we still need your help during this challenging kitten season! Please visit our Donate or Support page for ways you can help us help them.
Because this is last minute, we also really could use a few good volunteers! If you can help with setup (11:15 – noon) or with cleanup (3:45 to 4:45), please reply here or send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate the help so much.
Join us on Wednesday, July 25 at 6 pm at Polly’s in Laguna Hills for our Paint Fundraiser! It will be a fun evening of painting, pie, and socializing. $40 per adult / $30 for 16 and under (your food order is separate). More information and pre-registration at https://www.southerncountiesrescue.org/paint
We must have 25 people minimum to make this event happen! Please join us. It’s been an incredibly busy kitten season and this fundraiser is important to our ability to continue helping as many cats and kittens as possible.
Another one of my foster babies! ? I’m so in love with all of them they’re the sweetest little things they bring me so much joy. Guys please make sure you spray and neuter your cats/dogs. There are way too many animals dying in shelters bc of overcrowding. It’s kitten season and people just keep dumping litters at the shelter while the shelters don’t have enough funds or volunteers to help take care of them and they just end up getting euthanized ? this is where foster parents come in and save the day! By opening up their homes they give these sweet animals a second chance at life. If you have some space in your home and want to help innocent cats/dogs get the life they deserve consider fostering!
In 2017, we rescued 272 cats and kittens. 167 of these were rescues off the street. Another 105 came from shelters that were overcrowded and couldn’t handle families, bottle babies or sick kitties, so we took them into our foster homes.
We adopted out 263 cats and kittens into their forever homes. Thank you to our wonderful adopters!
We started 2017 with another 127 in our program on January 1 and ended the year with 131 cats and kittens under our care. This is about 100 more kitties than we helped in 2016. 2018 looks like another equally busy year.
In 2017, we spent thousands of dollars at vets and are continuing to do so in 2018. Our adoption fees don’t come close to covering expenses like emergency room visits, eye surgeries, blood panels… so we say a special thank you to anyone who can help us financially. Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted. No donation is ever too small.
(Pictured are recent adoptees Flash, M&M, and ZigZag. This picture was just too cute not to share!)
Did you know that we bring more than kitties to adoption events? Every last table, kennel, pen and clipboard is brought to the event each adoption day and unloaded, assembled, and organized by volunteers. Then at the end of the day, we do it all again. If you can spare an hour on a Saturday, contact us about volunteering!
Our space when we arrive.
Unloading and assembly.
Ready for kitty arrival!
