Southern California Abyssinian Rescue

Southern California Abyssinian Rescue, Inc. (S.C.A.R.) is a network of dedicated volunteers who serve the Southern California area and the CFA Southwest Region in rescuing and finding homes for Abyssinian and Somali cats and kittens that are in need.
As we are not a shelter, all cats are kept in foster homes until a permanent home is found.

If someone wants to rehome their aby because of a behavioral issue, we work with them first to find a solution so the cat remains in the home. If nothing works, we will place the cat with a well trained foster volunteer for evaluation and then, adoption.

S.C.A.R. also takes in abys from local shelters, rehabilitates them and finds them their furrever home. Sometimes the cats are strays, sometimes turned in by an owner. Many of these cats require visits to the vet and follow up medication and we rely on donations.

Adopting a rescued Abyssinian is a very rewarding experience. Most rescues are the wonderful, loving, delightful cats with who we all are familiar. Occasionally rescues can come with health or behavioral problems. Do not let this deter you. With patience and love these cats can become an important part of your life.

We require an application be filled out before any adoption. We only adopt within Southern California.

Thank you for adding your Aby rescue!

Thank you for adding your Abyssinian rescue's information.

I especially love how you are willing to tackle behavioral problems so that the cat can stay at home. After all the Aby is a very lively breed, and this may cause some trouble if the cat gets bored... (Well, just talking from my own experience - I just spent the whole evening yesterday trying to work with my computer while Pipsa, our Aby girl - the same who is standing in the midst of the flowers on the Aby Rescue starting page - just kept on carrying her stick for me to throw. No point in ignoring her - she just sings like an alarm clock until I throw the stick LOL :D)
