We are a no-kill rescue. All healthy animals will receive a home! Once a cat comes into our rescue, it is placed in a volunteer's home as a foster cat until adoption.

We will do our best to respond quickly but please allow up to a week for us to respond to correspondence that we receive because our lives get busy too!
If you need immediate assistance for an animal, please contact your local area shelter. For the cities of Canyon Lake, Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Temecula, Wildomar, and Menifee, you can contact Animal Friends of the Valleys in Wildomar at their regular business line (951) 674-0618.
