*ADOPTION UPDATE*
The past two weekends we had some wonderful adoptions! We said our very first goodbye last weekend, when Demi went to her forever home with a wonderful couple and her two new older kitty sisters! Our first ever foster farewell wasn’t easy, but it was clear she was in her perfect place with an incredible family, and that makes all the difference.

This weekend, Charlie and Latte went home together! They are now named Willow and Maisie (perfect names for them; I’m jealous we didn’t think of those names ourselves!😻) to an amazing couple who couldn’t be better forever parents to our very special girls.

This experience has been surreal. It’s painful to walk out the door and say goodbye, yet incredibly satisfying and heartwarming to get updates from their forever families and see how much they’re already thriving and getting the love and spoiling they deserve, from the most giving and caring families. We couldn’t have been more fortunate for these first two adoptions!

Mama Jellybean and the boys (now 14 weeks old) (Noodles, Squeakers, & Wolfie) are still with us and we hope to find them their perfect forevers too! Until then, they have a home here and we are happy to keep loving on them 🥰

Thank you all for sharing in our journey and loving this little foster family along with us. 🤍

Babies are 8 weeks old today! And mama Jellybean (only just turned 1 year old!) is back to being a kitten again too! Babies are all very big (all over 1000g already!) and growing up so fast. They will be vaccinated and tested soon and spay/neuter appointments hopefully in the very near future too!

They will be adoptable soon (pairs preferred) through @socountiesrescue. If you’d like any more information please feel free to dm me.

WOULD ASK IF YOU COULD PLEASE SHARE AND SPREAD THE WORD, so we can get these babies and their sweet mama the wonderful forever homes they deserve.🙏🤍

Swipe to see all the babies and mama Jellybean!🤍

Meet Bella and Bailey

Bella and Bailey are great with kids, dogs, other cats and adults too. Very well socialized, easy going kittens.
These 2 are not sisters by birth but they were rescued around the same time and they think they are sisters. Both love to run and play and wrestle with each other they are also friendly with other cats and of course they love people because they’ve been handled since quite small.
If you are interested in meeting either or both please go to our website and complete our adoption questionnaire, https://ift.tt/2qs1KFo #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #southerncountiesrescue

Meet Oreo and Butter two great siblings. Oreo is the black and white kitty and Butter is the calico. They are part of a family of four siblings but Oreo and Butter just seems to have a connection.
If you would like more information about either Oreo or Butter please go to our website at https://ift.tt/2qs1KFo and complete our online application.

Who can resist two brothers George and Karl, they are absolutely adorable…love people, love each other and will complete your family.
These two guys are being fostered in San Diego and can be met there or in San Juan Capistrano at Petco where we do adoptions.
They are the perfect kittens in that they love people, use their litter box, are not destructive and that’s because they have each other to wrestle with. They are tested negative for FeLV FIV, neutered, current on vaccines, dewormed, flea free and microchipped, already for you.
Karl has a beautiful tucked coat so there is some Abyssinian in him. George has an adorable belly of spots, maybe a little Bengal in his ancestors. We don’t know their history because they were rescued with their mom while quite young from a farming community.
Please apply to meet them on our website https://ift.tt/2qs1KFo
You won’t be sorry you chose George and Karl.

Sweet, sweet babies. Two super brothers, Snickers and Onyx. One with lots of spots and one with bright gold eyes. A perfect pair for your family. If you are thinking you want to adopt just one kitten please reconsider, kittens turn into much better cats when they have a play buddy.

Snickers and Onyx are a little timid at first so I don’t think small children would be good, pre-teens, teens and adults would be wonderful. Of course these brothers would love to be adopted together and would make a wonderful loving pair, but can be separated.and be buddy to your playful kitty or dog.

Snickers and Onyx were born in farm country to a stray mama cat (who is now fixed).

They are neutered, microchipped for ID, negative for FeLV/FIV, current on shots, dewormed and flea free. All ready for your home.

LoverBoy is his nickname because he loves people and will follow you around. A big Lynx Point Siamese, he was rescued in Mexicali, very friendly we don’t know what happened to his original home. LoverBoy is good with female cats but can be “alpha” with other male cats. We think he had to fight for his “place” when homeless. He is very happy being inside and spoiled.
LB will join you on the bed or where your are, a great “buddy” cat. I think he well be perfectly happy as an only cat or with a female buddy or non-alpha male.
Healthy, negative for FeLV/FIV, neutered, current on vaccines, dewormed, microchipped & flea free. Young, vet estimates 2-3 years old. All ready to join your family.

It’s raining kittens and we need fosters!

Please help if you are in Imperial, San Diego or Orange Counties — if you are new to fostering, great! We can provide the support you need.

This sweet mama and her newborn kittens needs a foster home ASAP. She had them on someone’s front porch but the person doesn’t have a safe place to foster indoors. The second family is living in a garage.

To foster you need a room with the door. This is to keep the mama and kittens safe and have enough room to stretch their legs as they grow. It can be small, often a bathroom works. We provide you with guidance and all of the medical and vetting needs of the family.

Please open up your heart and home — it is so rewarding. Without fosters we can’t save lives. Text 323-394-0954 for more information. Please complete a Foster Application at southerncountiesrescue.org.

If you can’t foster, as always, we need donations to cover their vetting. You can donate here.

We are a 100% volunteer organization with no paid staff, 501(c)(3) non-profit, thank you.

CHARLEE and LITTERMATES NEED YOU.
A couple of weeks ago we rescued a litter of 5 adorable kittens off a post where someone was giving them away for free at 5 weeks. Wanting them to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated before going to forever homes and knowing 5 weeks was much to young we offered to take them.A few days after going to the foster home Tiger started heavy breathing and was very lethargic so we rushed him to our vet. After x-rays and other tests it was discovered he had a hole in his diaphragm and Pneumonia. He immediately was transferred to the specialty hospital to confer with a surgeon and the possibility of fixing his hole. Unfortunately his little body couldn’t withstand the surgery and we lost him.The next day Charlee started rapid breathing 90 breaths per minute, 16 to 40 is normal so we rushed her to our vet. They gave her medicine to help her and scheduled a echocardiogram thinking it was her heart. The echocardiogram showed no problems with the heart.  Since then she has had periods of rapid breathing and three more trips to the vet for x-rays. She has stayed at the vet and been monitored where she would have rapid breathing and then be totally normal. The final diagnosis is she had pneumonia as a result of a bad upper respiratory infection and is now on the second medicine hopefully to make her 100% better. Yesterday another litter mate has rapid breathing and will need x-rays.

All these trips to our vet and to the vet specialist has resulted in large vet bills. Please help us. We rely on our cat loving community to take on these medical cases and save lives please help Charlee and her littermates. Click here to donate.

Sisters Dotty (left) and Dallas (right) were all set to go to their furever home together last week when Dallas suddenly spiked a high fever. They are separated for the first time in their lives while Dallas fights for her life. Her little kidneys are struggling, and she is on an IV and being syringe fed. Please consider donating so that we can continue to give her the best possible chance at beating whatever is attacking her little body. She is at Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group in San Juan Capistrano – https://ift.tt/2QjsfNS. We are praying she can fully recover and join her sister in their forever home as originally planned, but need your help covering her medical expenses! Donations can be made through the PayPal link on our website or by calling the vet directly to donate to her care. 949-201-4100. Thank you to all our supporters for all you do – we could not save kitty lives without you! #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #medicaldonationsneeded
