|The Rescue House is a
non-profit, all volunteer-based organization
dedicated to assisting cats through its rescue, foster and adoption
activities. We find loving homes for unwanted, abandoned, homeless and
abused cats. We open our arms to socialized, people-friendly cats that
need assistance, regardless of age and often regardless of handicap. We
find good homes for every cat that we take in – we are a true
no-kill cat rescue organization.
Since our inception in 1999, we have rescued over 9,300 cats. We find
loving, permanent homes for them through our 8 adoption centers in San
Diego County, located in pet stores that work with us and share our
philosophy. We have wonderful cats of all colors, shapes, sizes and
ages. All of our cats have had their medical requirements tended to;
we work with 7 veterinarians who ensure this. Each cat has been
examined, tested for feline leukemia and FIV, spayed/neutered,
vaccinated, micro-chipped, dewormed and treated for fleas. Our senior
cats have also had a full blood chemistry done and a teeth cleaning if
needed. Our adoption fee also includes the microchip registration and
30-days of complimentary pet insurance. We encourage you to visit our
adoption centers – click for a list of
locations - and check out the pictures and stories
of our special cats ready for adoption. These are great cats with
much love to give!
Our volunteers play a crucial role with The Rescue House. They provide
foster care for our rescued cats until they are ready to enter an
adoption center. They visit our adoption centers and take care of the
cats there, they provide transportation for the cats and they do many,
many other important tasks that keep this group helping as many cats as
we possibly can. We presently have over 225 active volunteers and 35
active foster homes. Our ONLY source of funding is from the generous
donations we receive from caring individuals.
The Rescue House’s dream is to eliminate the need for our
organization. We strive toward this goal through education to increase
public awareness of responsible pet ownership and an aggressive
spay/neuter program. Until such time as there are no more “homeless”
cats, we will provide our service the best we can. The Rescue House is
privileged to have been presented Channel 10’s Leadership Award for
outstanding community leadership.
We strive to save as many of our special cat companions lives as we
can. To save lives, we need the assistance and support of our
community – we need more volunteers and
