We are a no-kill foster-based rescue located in Southern California. Our mission is to reduce the number of abandoned and euthanized cats and kittens in Orange, San Diego and Imperial Counties.

We foster all of our cats and kittens in the homes of volunteer foster parents. We know all about our cats’ personalities and can help you find the perfect cat or kitten to join your family.

Support Southern Counties Rescue through our Spring Raffle!  Read the flyer here

Tickets are $5 each or 10 for $45.  Drawing on June 1.

First through fourth prizes must be picked up in Orange, San Diego, or Imperial County (all other prizes can be mailed).

To purchase tickets, contact elizabeth@southerncountiesrescue.org, or purchase via Paypal (to southerncountiesrescue@att.net) or Venmo (to @elizabeth-strani-tovar).

Cat and Kitten Adoption

Meet our adoptable cats and kittens! If you are interested in meeting one of them at our next adoption event, please fill out a no-obligation adoption questionnaire.

On most Saturday afternoons, we have kittens and adults to meet at Petco San Juan Capistrano.  We show by appointment only and a questionnaire must be on file.  If you don’t know exactly which kitty you are interested in, that’s okay!  You can list several on the questionnaire.  You must receive a confirmation with an appointment time in order to attend.  Social distancing guidelines will be followed and face coverings are required.

Support Our Work

We are always in need of donations to help support our rescue work. All donations go directly to our services and costs; we have no paid staff. Donations also help us to pull cats and kittens out of high-kill shelters in time to save them, and to remove cats from other dangerous situations.

Volunteers assist with a variety of tasks, both at our adoption events and elsewhere.  Read more about volunteering.

If you are interested in taking the next step and fostering cats or kittens for us, read more about fostering and complete our foster questionnaire.
