Review for Kitten Rescue, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned about Kitten Rescue when my best friend adopted from KR more than 10 years ago. What stuck in my mind from all those years back, was how personal and caring each Kitten Rescue member was whom she encountered when she adopted two kittens, somewhat unexpectedly, just days after the family cat of 18 years passed away. I remember her telling me how loving and understanding Sandra was when she met her at the adoption site, how bonded to the kittens their foster, Mary, was and her conversation with the KR President, Ben, the next time she visited the adoption place. Everyone wanted to insure that both the home and the cats were the right fit for one another, and they got it right. All these years later, those cats are beautiful, happy and beloved members of her family.

As chance would have it, many years later I ended up living in LA. I was ready for kittens and my friend reminded me, "Kitten Rescue", yes, off I went to a KR adoption, where i met Esther, who promised me, yes, they could find me a black kitten or two! They identified a pair of young adorable black cats. Their foster mom became a friend and ally. When I learned what her role as a foster for Kitten Rescue entailed, and how many cats she had gotten adopted, I was inspired. I eventually became a foster, a role that I am still learning with the amazing support of this organization. I became a volunteer at the Kitten Rescue nursery, where I assist in bottle feeding the small kittens as well as caring for the resident cerebellar hypoplasia cats. I take cats from the nursery or sanctuary, to their medical visits and back.

The more I learn about Kitten Rescue, the more I love being a part of it. Kitten Rescue is a grass roots organization comprised of highly intelligent, skilled and motivated people who love animals and are willing to fight to care for them and to save their lives on a daily basis. I have no hesitation asking for the support of my friends and family to this cause, because I know where the donations go and I know how carefully they are used to save the lives of the kittens of Los Angeles. I love their attitude of doing more and doing it better, all the time, and never giving up. I appreciate the professionalism and enthusiasm of everyone I encounter every day I am there.

I am attaching two pictures from recent days at the nursery; The kitty on the left arrived recently and is one of our bottle babies; the kitty on the right is all grown up and at the "ready for foster" stage.
