Important Note

Nutmeg is best friends with Ginger. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
This litter of kittens Carob, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Ginger were born in a derelict house. They had no human contact until Sunshine Rescue Group took their mom and the kittens into rescue when they were around 4 months old. The mom was very sociable and friendly and soon found a home. Because her kittens were never exposed to people we have been working with them diligently so they can learn to understand the loving touch and care that people can offer. They have been in foster care over two months and have come a long way, learning to trust people and enjoy being petted, played with and loved.

Nutmeg is a happy girl who loves to run and play and explore, she has gone off to explore her foster home outside the kitten room on several occasions! She is not as food motivated as her siblings and she is the only one that is short haired. Nutmeg enjoys playing the dangly toy games and likes all other cats. She will most likely be shy when she first comes into her new home and it might take some time for her to gain confidence and be off exploring.
Nutmeg is approximately 13 months old. She is considered a "torbie" which is a tortoiseshell/tabby mixture. She and her sister Ginger have been moved into the adoption center at Petsmart in San Leandro. They are adjusting to their new environment and would love to go on a sleepover together soon.

About Sunshine Rescue Group

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 100% volunteer-run organization with a mission to rescue abandoned, unwanted kittens, cats and dogs from local communities and shelters.

Once in our rescue, we do everything we can to make them as healthy and as highly adoptable as possible. We provide these innocent victims of neglect and circumstance with the best possible life.

We are a small organization that was started in 2006. Since then we have grown to include more than 30 volunteers & fosters. Between the hands on help from our volunteers and the much needed donations generously given from the public, we are able to continue one year at a time.

We do this job because there are far too many abandoned animals in our local communities that can't ask for help. They need someone to help them find them a loving home where they'll be loved and taken care of. There aren't as many rescue groups and shelters as there are homeless and forgotten animals for such a populated area.

All volunteers at Sunshine Rescue Group care about their communities and want to make a difference in the lives of our four-legged friends that been left behind. Although our organization may be small, we have big hearts and determination to make a difference for our friends and community.

Our Adoption Process...

This is to ensure we can continue our rescue operations.

ALL of our cat & kittens & dogs are spayed/neutered.

We give at least the first round of the FVRCP vaccine to all kittens and a de-wormer. Cats & dogs over a year get the standard/ current all-in-1 vaccine.

ALL of our animals are identifiable for a life-time. We use the AVID chip.

There is a mandatory 3 page application that must be completed.

Upon completion of application a volunteer will ask you basic question about your home and future plans for caring for your new pet. If you are a renter WE WILL call your landlord &/or property management to verify that pets are allowed at your residents.

Once the first two processes have been approved, just a few more papers will need to be filled out.
(receipt, "L" waiver, microchip manufacture info, ect)
