Kitties of Summer Adoption Event: Saturday, July 14

Our next adoption event is this Saturday, July 21, from noon to 4 pm at Petco San Juan Capistrano, 32391 Camino Capistrano. The event will be full of characters like Harry & RonRon, Thelma & Louise, Batman, Alvin & Linus, Duke of Earl… all looking for their forever homes. Please come meet them.

An application and photos can be found on our website or at Petfinder.

All of our kitties are fostered in homes so we know their personalities. We will help you make the perfect match… and if for some reason it doesn’t work out we will take our kitties back.

Ten Cats Need Urgent Rescue

This is a distressing and terrible situation.  Terra lives in Perris, California.  Her neighbors disappeared in the middle of the night a few months ago, leaving 80 (yes, 80) cats alone in an apartment.  Terra has been working tirelessly to save these cats (and our rescue has already taken in some of them) but the landlord, who has been very patient until this point, has given her only until Friday to get the last ten cats out of the apartment (some of them are pictured above).  Otherwise, they will be sent to a high-kill Riverside County shelter.

All cats have been tested and are negative for FLV/FIV.  They are mostly between 4 months and a year old.  If you can rescue or foster, please contact Terra directly at 714-397-5462.  She can meet you to transport the cat or cats.

Urgent: Foster Needed

A foster in Orange County is urgently needed for these two sisters, around 11 months old.  Diamond (tabby & white) and Jade (Bombay mix) are shy at adoption events so we need a foster who can home show them to a prospective adopter.  Or the best of both worlds — an adopter who wants two adorable sisters who are shy initially but warm up and love you.   They are good with other cats.

The current foster is leaving town and we need to move them this week.  Please open up your heart to these two sweet girls. They literally have no place to go, they were rescued from a feral colony and cannot go back there.

Text 323-394-0954 if you can foster or adopt, or fill out an adoption or a foster application.

Meet Harry and RonRon

 

Harry Potter fans, meet Harry and RonRon!

Ron Ron is not your typical ginger kitty; he is a Weasley. Ron takes after his characters name— he is a goofy romantic who loves a good time! He loves to play in your lap and he will cry when you’re not near. He especially loves going on adventures with his brother and BFF, Harry! As always, they may get into a little trouble, but that comes with the role. Ron Ron is magical, as his pattern is unique and he smells of cotton candy (yum)! You will love holding him near and hearing his sweet, happy purr. 

Harry Potter is a wizard! No, really. He will magically be in one spot and poof— he’s gone. He is a fluffy, green-eyed boy. He also takes after his character— he is smart, courageous, and the “chosen one”. He is the leader of the pack, and he doesn’t mind reminding Ron that he is in charge. Harry feels like soft clouds and smells like candy corn! You will love watching him play with Ron and listening to his magical purr when you pet him. 

Just as their characters, these boys are also lofty eaters. They enjoy a trolley cart load more than anything! Be sure to give them lots of food & love, and they will be sure to add some magic to your life. Always. 

If you would like more information, please complete our online application, and we’ll be in touch!

 

Special Sunday Adoption Event Tomorrow!

Update! We are going to have an adoption event tomorrow, Sunday, July 8, from noon to 4 pm at Petco San Juan Capistrano. We expect at least a dozen kittens, so please come by and meet your new best friend. Please share, especially if you are local.

Because this is last minute, we also really could use a few good volunteers! If you can help with setup (11:15 – noon) or with cleanup (3:45 to 4:45), please reply here or send a note to socountiesrescue@gmail.com. We appreciate the help so much.

Foster Needed

Urgently seeking a foster home in Orange, San Diego or Imperial County for these 4 week old Siamese kittens. There are five in the litter. They’re just starting to eat on their own, but will need to be closely monitored.

We prefer not to split litters at this age, but would consider it if they turn out to need bottle feeding. Text 323-394-0854 if you are interested, or complete our foster application.  If you cannot foster, please share, and donate towards their care.  Thank you!
