Mission Statement

It’s a tragic fact of life that LA, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties home dozens of high-kill shelters. And there is an estimated 70 million stray cats nationwide! Our mission is to give these innocent, abandoned cats and kittens a second chance. We do this by rescuing them from shelters and the streets, neutering/spaying, vaccinating, fostering, and finding them loving, permanent homes.


Ziggy and Friends is a 501c3 nonprofit, all-volunteer cat rescue. We pull cats from the streets and high-kill shelters and place them in nurturing foster homes until they are adopted into loving permanent homes. We also have an adoption center in West Los Angeles at Trixie's Pet Depot.

I have been a foster with Ziggy and Friends for the past year. it's my first time fostering. I am very blessed and fortunate to have this first time experience with Ziggy and Friends. they do outstanding work rescuing cats and kittens from the most dire situations, assure that they are healthy by seeing to all of their medical needs, and then carefully screening potential adopters. in and amongst all of this, there is a network of fosters and we care for these kitties until their forever home is found. The staff at Ziggy and Friends is also very supportive of the fosters, and communicate with them regularly. it's a good organization, so if you should decide that fostering is something that you would like to do, then please do contact them and tell them of your interest. Reliable fosters are always in demand.

Ziggy and Friends Cat Rescue is a wonderful organization, very well organized, honest and committed. Each cat rescue group does things a little differently, but with Ziggy and Friends, you are part of a group of very dedicated individuals! They provide the cat food, litter, and cover all vet expenses that might come up. They have stayed in regular contact with me to see how my foster kitty adapted to my home and my own cat. When I had questions, they were there with advice, support and great suggestions. They are very invested in finding the right permanent home for their cats and screen potential adopters carefully to make sure your foster kitty will go to a loving home that is a good match. So many cats and kittens are not adopted in time from the shelters. Ziggy and Friends rescues as many as they can and relies on their fosters to help with a temporary home, lots of cuddles, love and attention. As a foster, you are literally saving a life and that is a great feeling!
