This is a great rescue with a ton of heart. They have a no kitty left behind mentality and will fight to save any kitty in their care using the best vets in the area. I've never had an issue getting questions answered when I TEXT someone. I also love that they are consistently adopting out kitties through regularly scheduled events and partnerships with other businesses. Recently they have added new volunteers that I find to be really friendly.

BTKR is a wonderful rescue group. I started fostering kittens last year for them and have learned so much. The management team is informative, helpful and has a heart of gold for each kitten they rescue.

I adopted two of my cats from this rescue. My heart was so full from the generosity of the people here that I became a volunteer myself. They work endlessly and tirelessly to spread awareness and save lives and I'm PROUD to be associated with them.

Billy the kidden Rescue is amazing. All volunteers care so much about the cats and kittens they rescue, foster, and adopt out. The kitten I adopted from them is the sweetest, most affectionate kitten I’ve ever had. I would never have met him had it not been for the wonderful efforts of the btkr team.

This rescue is wonderful! Staffed completely by volunteers they work around the clock to trap, spay/neuter, either domesticate or release "fixed"feral cats back into their colonies. The cats available for adoption are completely vetted. They charge the adopter a small fee that barely covers their cost. They rely completely upon donations and are always in need.
I adopted my two beauties from them and they are the best!

This "rescue" is run by people who have no clue how to use basic scheduling techniques, they take your money, your votes and your volunteer time but lack communication and do not stand behind their words. Do not foster unless you plan on paying out hundreds of dollars of your own money and end up with another pet because they do not do proper adoption events of any kind on a regular basis. Lack of clear leadership and bully mentality.

This rescue is the WORST rescue I've ever dealt with. I got a kitten from them a week ago for $50.00. These people came to my house unannounced and unwelcome, came straight into our home, straight upstairs, and straight into our bedroom. They grabbed the kitten out of my hands, put her in a carrier, and took her away! I have owned cats my WHOLE life! They treated me like I was some kind of criminal, when in fact, me and my family take really good care of animals. We take pride in being animal lovers. After they took MY kitten back out of MY house that they were not welcome at, I asked for my money back because I only had the kitten for ONE WEEK, and they refused to give me the $50.00 back. Please do not EVER get a kitten from this rescue. We will be going to the pound from now on to get our kitties. We are loving people, and this rescue has treated us like some kind of CRIMINAL! TERRIBLE PEOPLE!!!! The lady's name is Terrah. HORRIBLE PEOPLE!!!!!

We remember this story differently. We took Remington backbecause your other cat was attacking her. You asked us to take her back and then when we showed up you were indecisive so we made the decision for her. We did not immediately go upstairs and snatch the cat. You showed us where she was after we spoke in your living room and examined your other cat who you were going to take to the vet because she was injured from falling or something else. We went with our gut and took Remington out of a dangerous situation.
