Itty Bitty Orphan Kitty Rescue
Who We Are
Itty Bitty Orphan Kitty Rescue is an all volunteer organization based in San Jose California dedicated to helping homeless, orphaned kitties in Santa Clara County find loving forever homes.
Itty Bitty Orphan Kitty Rescue is a small nonprofit organization specializing in the care of tiny orphaned and abandoned kittens. Meet the people of Itty Bitty Orphan Kitty Rescue here.
Itty Bitty Orphan Kitty Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. IBOK Rescue is a "no kill" organization and is staffed entirely by volunteers. All funding comes through your donations.
Our mission is to save the lives of orphaned pre-weaned kittens. Kittens under 8 weeks old are at high risk for euthanasia if surrendered to a shelter as they require a level of care that they are unable to provide. IBOK Rescue pulls pre-weaned kittens from local shelters and feral cat colonies and bottlefeeds them until they are old enough to eat on their own and be spayed/neutered and adopted into loving homes. Our goal is to provide loving foster homes where these "special needs" kittens can be given love, medical care, socialization, and attention that will ultimately lead to a successful adoption. We are actively involved in educating the public regarding spaying and neutering their pets and responsible animal guardianship. We also provide guidance and supplies on the care of pre-weaned kittens to the general public through our Pre-Wean Kitten Project. Our hope is to see the end of the routine euthanization of healthy adoptable animals for lack of homes.
We also work closely with other rescuers in an effort to reduce the growing population of feral cats in the South Bay through TNR (trapping, neutering and returning them to a natural and safe environment).
A donation is required. We require a tax-deductible donation of $125 (to help defray the medical costs incurred) for each kitten and $200 for a pair. Additional donations are appreciated, as it helps pay for medical, food and the items listed above. All donations are tax deductible.
