My story

This sweet adult girl is the most easy going of all the cats at Community Animal Network. We describe her as an "easy breezy" kitty. She is relaxed and fits in nicely with other cats. She loves to sit with you and be close always, although she is not really a lap cat.

Coco Chanel was adopted as a young cat, but ended up being found at the San Pedro Animal Shelter. Because of her microchip, she was reunited with Community Animal Network. Now she is just waiting for her chance at a forever home. The organization helps dogs and cats find new homes.

For more info, text DiAnna at 949-759-3646 or email at

Coco Chanel is being cared for by Community Animal Network, a non-profit organization founded by DiAnna Pfaff-Martin in 1996. C.A.N is a veterinary medical rescue with a veterinary internship program for pre-vet students.

C.A.N. foster homes are nurture houses and animals need time to decompress after some of the unfortunate experiences of their past.

Fostering is a wonderful way to help and also consider adopting by getting to know different animal’s that fit with your family’s lifestyle.

The founder of Community Animal Network, DiAnna Pfaff-Martin, is a feline expert with over 25 years of active rescue experience and is very particular about the nurturing of the animals to discover their needs to be happy in their future home.

“The Community Animal Report”, DiAnna wrote and self-published in the 1990’s standing in public places handing her paper out and helping private parties rehome their pets through her classified section called, “Pre-Loved Pets”.

In 1998 she was offered to write a weekly column called the, “Pet Of the Week” for the Los Angeles Times Daily Pilot Community Newspaper. DiAnna wrote the “Pet of the Week” for 18 years until 2016.

With DiAnna’s experience, feral kittens are tamed to "pet quality" and rescue cats that are shy are disclosed and termed, "rescue quality" with a lower placement fee and these special kitties often blossom in just the right home.

All future pet-parents receive valuable information about cat care in a two hour "feline pet-parenting consultation" that focuses a lot on the health and safety of the cat. The most current information is made available about how to keep your cat healthy, pet foods, litters and DiAnna’s specialty is “Make Cats Happy!

Community Animal Network animals have all customary rescue veterinary medical and are microchipped with the AVID microchip and registered in the national pet-recovery database included in the placement fee and the animals come with a 30-day heath commitment and return policy.

More about this rescue

We adopt kittens in pairs believing all young beings should have a playmate of the same species, similar age.

Our foster parents help match the pairs of "best play buddies)

The animals are in private homes and well-loved.

All the rescue organizations are not the same. We all get them from the same places, but well-socialized kittens are not easy to come by.

We specialize in “pet-quality” cats and kittens. A pet-quality cat has had positive experiences with humans and has felt loved. Many of our kittens like to be carried and held and would make great family members.

Kittens that have not been well-socialized or handled a lot avoid people, hide and are jumpy and are often described as independent and aloof or abused.

Why do we promote our kittens in pairs?

All young animals need a playmate. They learn social skills through play-fighting. Kittens need an “equal energy” playmate to interact with. Just like kids picking friends, they pick someone who likes to do the same things. Biting and attacking ankles may be cute when a kitten is small, but a full grown cat can bite hard. Behaviors that the public dislike are created by not making the best choice for the animals. Adopting a pair of young animals that have the same energy level that were well-socialized is the best choice.
