Southern California Siamese Rescue was born early in 2005, when we decided to divide California Siamese Rescue (CASR) into 2 separate, but closely aligned groups. CASR was extremely successful, but California is a very large state but after much thought, we felt we could provide more and better service to the cats and kittens we rescue if we became two groups.
We've always been amazed at the number of homeless Siamese in the shelters and on the streets. Due to the nature of the Siamese cat, they don't do well in shelters and due to civilization; they don't do well on the streets. That's where we come in. We work extensively with shelters and individuals to save these cats before they are euthanized in the shelters or killed on the streets. We feel that it is not the cat's fault that they become homeless and in order to make sure they don't end up that way again, we provide thorough screening of potential adopters before sending any of our cats to their 'forever' homes.
Prior to adopting out any of our cats, we ensure that they are as healthy as we can make them. In many cases the care needed is extensive and expensive, but to date we have never denied any care deemed necessary by a veterinarian for any of our rescued cats or kittens. It's the law in California that prior to being adopted all cats and kittens must be spayed or neutered as appropriate. In addition, we test all of our cats for Feline Aids and Feline Leukemia prior to adoption. Shots as necessary, treatment for fleas and de-worming are also routine.
Because all of our cats are fostered in private homes, we feel that we can offer insights into their individual personalities and quirks to the potential adopters. We make every attempt to make successful matches from both sides of the adoption process and have had a stellar success rate.
Although we share the website with our sister organizations, we are completely self-sufficient in regards to rescue, policies, fundraising and promotion of our individual organization. Contact us if you are interested in volunteering, donating, fostering or adopting.
