California Animal Rescue
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. 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. 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.
Once Adoption application is approved, a home visit is performed and meeting with potential adopter to make sure animal is going to be a good fit.
•Cats/Kittens: Starting at $100.
•Dogs: Starting at $300.
•Puppies: Starting at $350
What do you get for the adoption fee?
•Spay/neuter - Each animal has already been spayed or neutered. This is the majority of the adoption fee.
•Microchip - Each animal has been microchipped.
•Vaccinations - Each animal has had its 1st and often 2nd set of vaccines. Puppies and kittens can only have initial vaccines. All adult dogs have had rabies shots. A written medical history is included with each adoption.
•Worming - We routinely worm the cats and dogs (experience has taught us that this is all too common an issue with homeless pets).
•No Fleas! - All of our animals have been treated with Advantage.
•Healthy cats & dogs - We don't put them up for adoption if they're sick. Upper respiratory infections are the most common, especially in shelter animals. They get any needed medical treatment, from upper respiratory infections to ringworm, from abcesses to amputations. Anyone who gets sick goes to back into foster care until they're healthy. The adoption fee is the same regardless of their medical history, which is why we always welcome donations.
