My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Sunshine is pretty special ed. 😁 He was a previously TNR'd colony cat from La Puente. He disappeared for two years and then showed up again near a colony close by.
He had been thrown in the trash. He was hardly moving and he was completely jaundiced from gosh knows what. He was so weak that he needed an esophageal feeding tube to deliver nutrients to him while he gained strength. Cats are abused and treated like garbage around those parts and it is no wonder how he is able to trust people at all. This guy was different. Even in his dying stages he wanted to be petted on his head So weak, but able to lift his head for headbutts. He deserved a chance. He was resilient and although his recovery was long it was completely worth it. He's an indoor boy. Enjoys his toys like a kitten (probably because it is the first time in his life that he can play with toys). He has slowly been gaining trust and would love an opportunity to have an owner. While he is not a cat that will cuddle with you in bed, he has gotten the courage to sit with you on the couch to get petted. He's very silly, pretends he's feral sometimes, and probably a little retarded. He can't help the circumstances he was forced to live. We want better for him. He is a unique young man who would love to be someone's companion. Sunshine is being adopted through the San Gabriel Valley Animal Advocates. If you are interested in adopting Sunshine, please submit an application at http://www.sgvaa.org/pre-adoption-questionnaire.html and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Your adoption donation allows us to rescue the next kitty from the streets and pay for all their health and medical needs.

Most of our adoptable pets live in loving foster homes. We can arrange meet-and-greets with our foster families, at our live-in habitats in the West Covina and El Monte Petcos, as well as at the Huntington Beach (Edinger) PetSmart.

SGVAA is an all-volunteer, non-profit rescue organization serving the San Gabriel Valley area. For more information on how you can help your community, please visit: www.sgvaa.org

Their Adoption Process
If you are interested in any of our adoptable pets or have additional questions, please fill out an adoption application and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Since we are an all-volunteer organization, it may take us within 24-48 hours to respond. Our little fur babies are so adorable that sometimes we get multiple applications for one pet! So if the pet you are interested in is no longer available there is no need to worry! We have plenty of friends who are furry!

As part of the adoption process, we screen each new potential owner, and do home visits to ensure that an animal and owner are a good match. Once your adoption application has been approved, we will have you fill out a Pet Promise Certificate (adoption contract)

*SGVAA’s adoption donation allows us to rescue the next kitty from the streets and pay for all of their health and welfare needs (spay, neuter, shots, deworming, flea meds, microchip)

*We also provide free home delivery of your new kitty/kitties!

About This Rescue
SGVAA is dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of pets in the San Gabriel Valley area. We encourage people to rescue a homeless animal instead of buying one. Our organization also educates the community on the importance of early vaccinations for fatal and easily preventable diseases. We also advocate spaying or neutering to reduce pet overpopulation. Once an animal is in our care we vaccinate all rescues against disease & provide needed health care, fight pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering all rescues, and provide lifetime shelter and care to any rescued animal that is not adopted.
