Buckaroo Banzai is one cool cowboy. When he's not moseying from one room to another, checking up on all the local folks, he enjoys sitting with his humans, purring and remembering his days on the old dusty trail.

For a few years, Buckaroo lived outside and slept under the stars. He 'belonged' to a man with a messy house, but the man never let him inside, so Buckaroo learned to be independent and rely on himself. Once the man moved away and left Buckaroo behind, a pretty young lady on the block took him in, and gave him the love and one-on-one affection he'd never had. He adjusted to life inside like he was born to it! He is now fully content to spend his days indoors, and away from the hot California sun, and wild critters that roam the yard. He is much safer, and much happier than he has ever been!

Buckaroo leads a pretty low-key life, and he would be happiest in a forever home that matches his low-key, quiet energy. He's a little overwhelmed and scared when other animals or smaller humans get in his face - after all, he's used to being on his own - but he's more than happy to hang out with some other kitty cowboys, as long as their interaction is primarily tipping their hat to him as they pass, and going along their merry way. If you've got room in your heart and your home for a boy like Buckaroo Banzai, please contact his foster mom!

About Kitten Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome! Kitten Rescue is a non-profit organization located in the Los Angeles area, devoted to rescuing needy kittens and cats from shelter euthanasia and abandonment. We provide our rescued cats with all necessary medical attention and ongoing treatment to establish their health, while caring for them in foster homes, where they're given abundant love and affection. The kitties like that part the best!

Kitten Rescue presents cats for adoption regularly at locations all over Los Angeles County, in addition to conducting private adoptions during the week, with the goal of finding loving, committed homes for every animal we take in. We also offer education and help to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet ownership, care of kittens and cats, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our kitties live in foster homes and can be visited at one of our four weekly adoption events! Check our website for our adoption events and locations near you!

Our Adoption Process...

When you choose to adopt one of Kitten Rescue's animals, required adoption donations begin at $120.00. All of our cats have been spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped prior to adoption.

Many of our cats have also received additional vet care as needed, such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, treatment for ear, eye, upper respiratory infections, and viruses. Additional veterinary care beyond these services, for the (hopefully) long life of your cat, will be your responsibility.

Please be aware that there is a screening process involved in adopting a pet from Kitten Rescue. To help ensure that we place our cats in loving, responsible, and committed homes, we reserve the right to turn down potential adopters as we deem necessary. A home delivery or visit is a required part of the adoption procedure.

If for any reason you wish or need to return a cat you've adopted from us, you can do so within 72 hours for a full refund of the adoption donation. After that, be it months or years later and we're still in existence, if you need to give up the animal, please bring it to us. We won't be able to refund the adoption fee, but we will place it in a new home.

Kitten Rescue cats are so for life...we're always here to answer questions and help solve problems.
