I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Do you remember Tiger from the Brady Bunch? Well, I think he's my long lost uncle - we look so much alike! My name is Harry, and I am a funny, unique character. I spent the first part of my life with a homeless man who did his best to take care of me. After he was hit by a car recently, my foster mom took me in and is helping me find a secure, forever home.
Until I came to my foster home, I had never had toys before. . . now, new toys are the most exciting things ever. Especially the squeaky rubber ones. . . I love to chase them and play tug-a-war with the other dogs! However, I am not a big fan of cats - we just don't understand each other. I am playful and active, and even though I have short legs, I keep up with my lean, long-legged foster brother! Once I wear myself out, I like to cuddle in your lap or find a soft spot to rest belly up. I weigh about 23 pounds so I am a perfect size to warm up your whole lap!
Because of my life on the street and the many scary things we encountered, I am a bit nippy with new people. I want to protect my person and my bark can sound a little scary too. I have started training classes with my foster mom to help me get over this fear. So, ideally, I need a home with a patient person who is a seasoned dog owner, understands that I get a little scared sometimes, and that can help redirect my thinking and continue with my training. Small kids would not be the best fit for me. I am working with my foster mom to perfect my potty training, and she tells me that I am improving greatly.
My foster mom says that if potential adoptive parents are looking for a dog in whose life they can make a real difference, I would be perfect. Once I trust you, I am super sweet, take treats gently from your hand, and remind my foster mom of a floppy cartoon character! I have been fixed, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped.

Rescue Group Info...
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.
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!
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.
