Saving Animals

Kitten Rescue is a Los Angeles based organization dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned cats and kittens.

Kitten Rescue was founded in 1997 with the intent of saving the most helpless victims of the homeless cat crisis from city  shelters- orphaned, unweaned kittens. These precious angels are too young to be adopted out to the public and shelter staff does not have the time or resources to bottle feed them every 2-4 hours, so the kittens are euthanized within hours of intake if a foster home or rescue group cannot be found. While shelter kitten rescue is the root of Kitten Rescue, we have expanded over the years. We save cats and kittens of all ages from the streets and city shelters.

The Kitten Rescue Sanctuary and Kitten Nursery in Atwater Village is home to up to 180 cats and kittens at any given time. At the Kiten Nursery we bottle feed orphaned, unweaned kittens 24 hours a day/7 days a week. At the Sanctuary we give lifetime care to special needs cats.

The majority of Kitten Rescue's animals live in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted. Our volunteers care for orphaned or abandoned kittens who need to be bottle fed, moms with litters, cats who need socialization and sick and injured animals. Kitten Rescue takes care of all of its rescued cats' medical needs, and prior to adoption, every cat is spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped

We offer education and assistance to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet guardianship, care of kittens and cats, the importance of spaying and neutering, and the proper maintenance and care of community cat colonies. During "kitten season", we teach bottle feeding classes for people who want to care for unweaned kittens.


We envision a future when Los Angeles is a No Kill City where every animal has a loving home. We will not give up saving the forgotten felines of Los Angeles until our vision is a reality.
