Mission Statement

Southern Counties Rescue is committed to making a difference in the lives of unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens.

In addition to rescuing and placing cats and kittens in need, Southern Counties Rescue is equally passionate about reducing the number of stays and unwanted kittens by supporting all spay/neuter programs and educating the public on the need to fix their own pets and any cats that wander into their yards, especially if they are feeding them.


Southern Counties Rescue is an all volunteer (no paid staff), nonprofit, no-kill organization devoted to finding loving new homes for homeless cats and kittens in Imperial, San Diego and Orange Counties cats. Members and adoption events of SCR were formerly part of Kitten Rescue, Los Angeles, LA’s largest cat rescue organization. Many of our cats are rescued from high kill city shelters at the 11 th hour - right before they are scheduled to be euthanized. We also take in friendly moms with kittens born in backyards, kittens born in feral colonies, and cats abandoned on the streets to fend for themselves. We are committed to making a difference in the lives of these animals.

Unfortunately, we receive many more calls for help than we can answer. Volunteers are always needed to foster abandoned cats and kittens, staff adoption events, help with transportation, fundraising, assisting with web postings, paperwork or publicity and for numerous other jobs.
