My story

Rescued from a high Kill shelter

Sophie came to our rescue from a High Kill Shelter she did test positive FIV at the shelter. fiv isn't a death sentence to a cat or a reason to kill a other wise healthy cat. She is beautiful and just beyond loving. She loves to talk to you and just loves to be around humans. Sophie has a lot of love to give to a family.  Sophie very sweet and loving and has been around kids and just loves playing with kids, Very playful and active. Great with the litter box!  Micro-chipped wormed flea treatment shots and have been fixed.  Sophie has to be the most sweetest kitty on this earth. She was a owner surrender to the shelter after years being with this family to now say they are allergic to her. I think personally this has to be a horrible reason to dump a family pet after so many years. Our rescue wants so badly to place her in a forever home. If your interested please contact our rescue. 559-412-7226

Sophie will be lots of love to her new loving family. She is a beauty in person.

We currently have in our adoption area at our rescue many cats all running freely in our adoption area waiting for there forever homes. We try to keep up to date our cats currently up for adoption listed. But we S/N weekly and try to add our updates of cats weekly. But there are still many cats we have up for adoption that may not have been listed yet.

All our cats up for adoption come from High Kill Shelters that have a very short time at the Kill Shelter prior to being put down. By adopting from our rescue it makes room for us to pull more cats from the High Kill Shelters and keeping them from being put down at the kill shelter. We don't take in any private owned cats. Just shelter cats for there life at the Kill shelter is very short before being put down.

Our rescue is a no kill rescue! We work hard to get our cats ready for adoptions. If you would like to meet all our cats up for adoption please contact us 559-412-7226. We are by appointments only!

We are a rescue, not a shelter. We do not kill any animals here at our rescue. In fact, we do not advocate the killing of animals and wish all shelters would adopt a "no kill" policy. Many of the animals that we rescue end up living out their days here, as some are not adoptable, which may be due to their age, medical issues, socialization issues, or inability to handle children or other animals. Some are also pets that have been unwanted by relatives when their owners have passed on. We try to facilitate the adoption of all animals referred to us that we feel would be good companions. Also, we try to help those that are in transition to find foster homes while they are seeking permanent adoption. You should know that we are very selective about which animals we bring into our rescue so that they will adapt well with the ones already residing here. We have wonderful kittens and adult cats ready for adoption. Please contact us to arrange an appointment. We work with many rescue groups in helping the public to understand the meaning of a feral cat and the TNR (trap and release) program. We also offer help to those people who are interested in starting a TNR program in their area. Feral cats don't need to be killed...and I can't express that enough! We do not support any program that kills feral cats. We are backed by the PETA and Alley Cats organization, and we work from donations and volunteer help. The very sad part of being in rescue... is that this is what we see every day walking into the shelter's knowing they will all die in a few days. Its hard to be in rescue and see this every single day over and over... it takes a toll on us all dealing with trying to save a life. Then the question is who do we save and who do we leave behind? Our rescue never leaves family members behind NEVER !!

More about this rescue

We originally started as a feral cat program at California Prisons. Inmates were an integral part of that program. However, new wardens shut down our program, which was very successful. In 1999, we moved forward to be a well rounded cat rescue. We save as many cats as our donations allow. All cats are pulled from high-kill shelters in California. Our cats are domestic, feral, seniors, and special needs. All cats deserve respect and second chance at having a safe and loving forever home.
