Kitten Rescue- Dedicated to the forgotten felines of Los Angeles
Kitten Rescue was founded in the spring of 1997 and has grown into one of the largest and most respected animal welfare groups in Los Angeles. We are a non-profit organization dedecated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless animals. Kitten Rescue volunteers place approximately 1,000 companion animals into new homes every year. Since its inception, Kitten Rescue has rescued and placed over 14,000 animals into loving homes.
The Hope Fund- Helping cats in dire need of medical care
In the summer of 2006 we got a call about a kitten who was found lying in a gutter after being hit by a car. She was given baby Tylenol by the person who found her, who did not know that it is toxic for cats. When the person called Kitten Rescue for help, we rushed her to an emergency hospital for treatment. They treated her for Tylenol poisoning and determined that she would need extensive surgery to save her shattered leg. We named her Hope.
Kitten Rescue reached out to our supporters for help and the response was truly overwhelming. Within a few hours, enough money had been raised to cover Hope's hospitalization and the anticipated costs of her surgery. Donations kept coming in, including a $5,000 anonymous donation from a very generous sponsor.
We were devastated when the vet called to tell us that Hope had passed away during surgery. In Hope's honor, Kitten Rescue established The Hope Fund, using the remaining donations raised for Hope. The Hope Fund is dedicated to the support of rescued cats who are in dire need of expensive medical care. Thanks to the Hope Fund, Kitten Rescue has been able to rescue and rehabilitate cats suffering from extensive injuries.
This year has proven to be a particularly expensive one for emergency veterinary care and our Hope Fund has been depleted, leaving us with outstanding medical bills. Please consider honoring Hope's memory by donating here to help us pay for medical care for these deserving angels.
Your donation will help us save animals in dire need of medical help that would otherwise be left behind at the shelter or left to suffer on the streets. Help us save these deserving angels, get them well and find them forever homes. Help us save these forgotten felines of Los Angeles by making a contribution here.
