WHO WE ARE:
California Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue group dedicated to the rescue of homeless animals from county shelters and out in the streets, and control of the population thru diligent spaying and neutering. We consist of a group of volunteers who rescue animals, foster them in our homes and place them up for adoption.
WHY WE EXIST:
Our county animal shelters are often overcrowded. Many animals are euthanized because their short window of time to be adopted has run out, or because they are too young to be placed for adoption or they're sick and need to be in foster care until they are old enough and/or healthy enough to be adopted. We strive to fill some of the gap for those animals that run out of time or aren't given enough time.
WHAT WE DO:
We rescue many animals from euthanasia at overcrowded county shelters, as well as taking in orphans and homeless animals found by people on their property, or sadly abandoned in front of stores or on roadsides. By taking these animals under our wing we alleviate shelter overcrowding and give these animals a chance at a good home. We foster the animals in our homes, often nursing many of them back to health, then have them spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated & wormed before putting them up for adoption.
WHO'S BEHIND THE SCENES:
Although we are a non-profit corporation, in practicality, we are just a handful of dedicated animal-loving volunteers. We all have jobs, families and busy lives, but we’re all committed to saving animals. Often we stay up nights bottle feeding kittens, or nursing sick or injured animals or making trips to the emergency vet.
Since we operate out of our own homes, our space is very limited so we limit our focus to rescuing animals in dire need. During spring and summer, we have seasonal foster parents that help us during the busiest times, taking in litters of tiny sick kittens or pregnant momcats. We always need more fosters so please contact us if you’re interested in fostering! Remember even Superman had foster parents.
