Scooby Doo was turned into Downey shelter at just 5 weeks old. Barely old enough to even consider being away from his mom, this tiny puppy was also suffering from mange. His foster mom rescued him as the shelter was going to euthanize him both for being too young and for having mange. Luckily for Scooby, he had Demodectic mange - which is non-contagious and pretty easy to treat. While it did take quite some time to clear up due to his severely weakened immune system, Scooby is now fully recovered and ready to find a loving home.
From day one, Scooby has shown a deep love for other animals but especially for cats. As a little puppy, Scooby would try to horde all the kittens in his foster home in his crate along with all his toys. There is little he loves more than a lap to snuggle in and a kitty to play with. Scooby gets very attached to his person, and will follow you everywhere. He is outgoing and loving, always giving kisses once he knows the person is ok. He can be shy at first as new people intimidate him if they tower over him rather than kneeling down on his level. However, all Scooby does is cower and try to crawl into his trusted person's lap when he is afraid. Scooby wants to go everywhere with you; he sleeps on the bed, cuddles on your lap, gives you kisses, follows you everywhere, and wants to play with every toy in sight which he will horde from others.
When it comes to other dogs, Scooby has a big mouth and tends to wag his tail the entire time. He probably would be happiest in a home with only one other dog his size, or even better - with cats!! Scooby can be adopted with just about any kitty and be very happy. He spends a lot of time grooming cat ears, so he will help you make sure your kitty is extra clean. Scooby needs a calm environment that isn't too crazy. He is scared of children and will bark at them to hide his fear; his foster mom thinks he doesn't understand what they are! If you have a lap that needs a friend, then Scooby is definitely the perfect dog for you!
Scooby is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, and flea treated.

More information about Kitten Rescue
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.
