Foster Needed

One of our favorite doctors has asked for our help and we are asking for yours. These three kittens were abandoned and desperately need a foster. Living in a cage, even at a veterinary office, is no way to live. They are well cared for but deserve to run, play and have a lap to nap on.

These three cuties are healthy, spayed and neutered and although a bit shy at first, warm up pretty quick. A little TLC and they will be ready for their forever home!

Contact Julie at 714-756-0679 if you are in Orange County and can foster.

Can you foster?

Someone just contacted our rescue asking for assistance. These three kittens were found outside and need shelter and socializing. If you can open your home and heart for a short time (these three look to be close to 2 months old) please contact Julie at 714-756-0679 (text please). They will need some TLC as they are afraid of people. (Probably with good reason, unfortunately) Orange County, North San Diego County please.

Foster Needed!

Once upon a time a family of kittens had a whole room to themselves to run and be kittens. Now, through no fault of their own, they are in a cage.

These sweet kittens were given to the rescue by the person who rescued them. Of course we took them in…it’s what we do and the kittens are innocents.

These sweethearts (there are seven of them total) are available for adoption. In the meantime, we need a place for them to go so they can be kittens and run. Can someone please help them and foster? They are current on vaccinations, tested for FeLV/FIV, microchipped and ready to be adopted! We need a foster home to move them to ASAP.

Living in a cage is no place for them but it is the only alternative at the moment. Contact Phyllis at 323-394-0954 or Julie at 714-756-0679 (text please) if you can help. Orange County, Imperial County please.

More fosters needed!

These three gorgeous Siamese x cats were left behind when their owners moved. The local shelter has said that there is no room so the cats will be euthanized if they are taken there. We need a foster to move them into ASAP.⠀

Right now they are being boarded at a vet’s office. This is a very short term solution. They are running out of time. Please contact Julie at 714-756-0679 (text) if you can foster these beautiful, sweet kitties. They do not deserve to die because their owners were cruel and heartless. Orange County, Imperial County or Belmont Shores area.⠀

Foster needed immediately! Today!

URGENT! These 6 week old kittens are headed back to the shelter if we can’t find a foster. We pulled them last week and the foster we had lined up to take them can’t keep them. (no judgement please. We value our fosters and circumstances change) She texted me just now saying that she is taking them back to shelter. They won’t make it out. They are stunning, sweet and almost ready for adoption. Orange Count/Belmont Shores please. Contact Julie at 714-756-0679 (text) ASAP!

Adopter or Foster Needed!

These two beautiful, bonded kitties were adopted from our rescue a couple of months ago. The adopter’s son has allergies and the doctor has recommended relinquishing the cats.

We need an adopter, or at the very least a foster for these two. If we can’t find a placement for them, they will have to be kept in a crate.

They are sweet, beautiful and very loving. These two had a rough start in life, thought they found a forever home that they are now losing. They deserve better. Can someone please step up for these two?

Fosters: Orange County or Belmont Shores. Adopter: San Diego County, Orange County or Belmont Shores area. Contact Julie at 714-756-0679 (text please).

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.

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.

Paint this beautiful kitty! No experience required! ⠀

Join us on Wednesday, July 25 at 6 pm at Polly’s in Laguna Hills for our Paint Fundraiser! It will be a fun evening of painting, pie, and socializing. $40 per adult / $30 for 16 and under (your food order is separate). More information and pre-registration at https://southerncountiesrescue.org/paint

We must have 25 people minimum to make this event happen! Please join us. It’s been an incredibly busy kitten season and this fundraiser is important to our ability to continue helping as many cats and kittens as possible.

Kittenpalooza!

We need your help! The rescue is positively bursting at the seams with kittens, and our resources — both fosters and financial — are running low. It’s getting very hard to take in new rescues.

So to try to place as many kittens as we can in great homes, our adoption event next Saturday will be all about the kittens! We’ll be posting just some of our kittens all week, and you can see all of them here.

Please help us promote this event! Share, retweet, pin, reblog. Share to Nextdoor if you’re in the area. Print the image and post it. If you know of anyone with lots of social media followers in Southern California, please ask them to help too.

If you are out of the area and want to help, please consider donating just $5 via our site. For the cost of a latte, you can make a difference.

Thank you, and we hope to see you Saturday!

Fosters Needed!

HELP NEEDED NOW! This time of year is hard for rescues. We get so many pleas for help and we feel helpless because we are limited. Right now, there are multiple situations that our rescue is trying to help with. A colony of cats are in imminent danger of being picked up by animal control and taken to a shelter where they will be euthanized. There are at least two pregnant moms and three moms with babies that we can move as soon as we have fosters. In addition, there are two pregnant moms living outside and three nursing moms that are outdoors as well…with their kittens. ⠀

Bottom line is WE NEED FOSTERS! All you need is a small room to keep them in so mom can do her thing. It’s for a short time, rescue provides all vetting and placement of kitties. Please, please open your hearts and homes and help us save these kitties. Contact Julie at 714-756-0679 (text is best) or jparlett4@aol.com or go to our website at southerncountiesrescue.org, the “Get Involved” tab has a link for a foster form (Application). ⠀
