Kitty Bungalow is Southern California's only 100% feral cat rescue and socialization facility. As shelter interventionists, we focus our attention on the most vulnerable of felines. At the Charm School we break down the anxiety of feral cats with our nearly 100 volunteers who use guided socialization techniques and 'lesson plans', taking these street cats from 'hiss to home'. Kittens who have completed their lesson plans and are ready for adoption are enrolled in our University, where they polish their pet skills and find forever homes! Our rescue is more than just finding homes for the homeless; we are working at the root of the problem, also providing broad based Trap Neuter Return (TNR) and free spays and neuters to neighborhoods in need within Los Angeles.
