Mission Statement

Our rescue's mission is to rescue and rehabilitate as many abandoned and neglected cats as we can each year. Through spaying, neutering, foster care and finding permanent homes for cats and kittens. This includes vetting, feeding and housing them until we are able to find permanent homes.

We also help with feral cats through our TNR and feeding program as well as rehabilitation of the kittens, enabling them to be adopted into homes.


We hold adoption events every Saturday from 1pm to 5pm, some Sundays (call for hours) and may be available by appointment. Our adoption site is inside Petsmart in the Tustin Marketplace, right off the 5 freeway at Tustin Ranch Road and El Camino Real.

We require an adoption application, contract and adoption donation for all cats and kittens. All cats and kittens must be transported from the adoption site in an enclosed carrier. Adoption fees are payable via check or cash only at this time.

Would you recommend Caring Friends Cat Rescue?

by Reema H. from Washington, DC (September 7, 2010)
The veteran volunteers really do care and put a lot of time and effort in caring for the cats. Helping with vaccinations, fostering, surgeries, dental care, and anything else you can think of, they take care of. Sometimes a little unorganized and unsure what to do with new volunteers, but stick around and they are a really great bunch of people to meet. I love getting cat tidbits and tips from such experienced cat owners. We swap cat stories and discuss the personalities quirks of the current cats. It's up to you what you want to do, and how often. They don't make too many requests of commitments of volunteers. I go to help clean the kennels, let the cats out, and socialize the shyer kittens or adult cats.

Went to volunteer and all of the others there were very kind and friendly. They genuinely care about the cats here and I look forward to continuing to volunteer with them!
